FEBC’s Impact

Radio Teos, as we are known in Russia, has been broadcasting the Gospel by shortwave since the late 1940s. In February 1992, after the fall of communism, FEBC Russia became incorporated within the country, where it expanded its broadcast ministry.

International Broadcasts

We also broadcast from a 100 kilowatt shortwave transmitter in the Philippines. This signal covers the entire area of the former Soviet Union, bringing the Good News to multitudes who live there. Our broadcasts are offered in the following languages: Russian, Tartar, Ukrainian, Buryat, and Chechen.

Other Support Ministries

Working hand in hand with Russian believers, FEBC’s staff supports the Russian church by inviting pastors to their programs and encouraging listeners to become part of a body of local believers.

Community Development

We support foster care and adoption, as well as drug rehab centers.  We also conduct training seminars, offer concerts and special church services, and help kids living on the streets.  In addition, we provide phone consultations for people in crises.
