FEBA RADIO (FEBA) and our partner FEBC (Far East Broadcasting Company) is an international Christian missionary organization which broadcasts the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the least-reached nations on earth. earth.
Our mission is to broadcast the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people around the world isolated by economic, educational, geographic, political and religious barriers. Many of these “forgotten people” of society are located in countries with tremendous political and cultural opposition to the gospel and therefore limited access to Christian resources.
We communicate the Good News among the nations by media to inspire people to follow Jesus Christ.
What we DO
From its inception, FEBA/FEBC has endeavored to use national directors and ethnic broadcasters to produce culturally relevant programming. Staff that speak the “heart” language and know the culture of a people are far more effective at sharing the message of Christ.
FEBC currently produces more than 700 hours of broadcasts aired from 128 shortwave transmitters and 146 additional FM stations in 130+ languages around the world daily.
While each field is encouraged to become financially independent, until that occurs resources are supplemented by FEBA/FEBC support raising fields.
Our Great Affection:
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
What We Do
For 70+ years, radio has proven to be an excellent way to reach people in almost any location or circumstance. FEBC utilizes high power AM, FM or shortwave transmitters to deliver community development, evangelistic, and discipleship programming to some of the most remote and needy areas of the world, as well as dense population centers.
When new technologies emerge that show promise at reaching specific people groups or large numbers of people, FEBC adopts use of them, such as internet and satellite broadcasting, podcasting, MP3 players and, most recently, cell phones/memory cards/speaker boxes to reach listeners living in restricted countries.
About half of our ministry is devoted to educational programs, which include topics like; finance, health, family life and relationships. We also have an extensive follow-up ministry in each field of work.
We broadcast in approx. 50 countries in 130 different languages for 770+ hours daily.
We know this ministry is effective because we receive 9 million direct listener responses annually. In China alone 40 million downloads of FEBC material and programs have been recorded in one year.
FEBC offers Christian and community service resources such as medical advice, job training, family and marriage counseling, health and safety tips, and call-in programs that serve listeners in a culturally-relevant manner.
FEBC distributes wind-up and battery-operated radios that offer people in isolated environments daily access to our broadcasts. In 2010, we distributed 9,810 radios. In 2011, FEBC distributed 10,575.
