On April 1951, FEBC added Vietnamese broadcasting to our schedule. In 1966, the first Vietnamese programmers joined FEBC staff in Manila. For the past 60 years, FEBC has shared Christ and impacted lives in Vietnam – one of the few remaining Communist countries in the world – through our radio broadcasts. Our influence has continued to grow in spite of challenges, reaping an incredible harvest of souls as men and women hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.

On April 1975, South Vietnam was overtaken by the North. Our Vietnamese staff were evacuated and relocated to the US, where they established the Vietnamese Department. “Nguon Song Radio” has aired uninterrupted to Vietnam ever since. In May 2001, production began for our Minority Language broadcasts that continue to this day.
