The Bible tells the story of two journeyers on the road to Emmaus. As they walk together, a stranger draws alongside. The stranger, who is Jesus, becomes a friend. He opens up Scripture in such a way that when He departs, the travelers’ hearts are left wanting to know more.
That imagery of a friend walking alongside people on a journey is a perfect fit for how radio makes a difference in the lives of its listeners. Especially in places like North Africa and the Middle East.
It is estimated that 95 percent of the people who live in the Arab World will never personally meet a Christian. But radio changes that!
Today across the region, individuals hear the voices of HCJB Global’s partners through daily shortwave and satellite radio. Believers who produce these programs become the voices of trusted companions – friends who speak words of life and hope to those on a journey toward discovering who Jesus Christ really is and accepting Him as Savior.
Results from an independent radio survey firm reveal that more than 1.5 million people in the Arab World are tuning in at least weekly to our Arabic-language broadcasts. In addition, statistics indicate that those listening through Internet live-streaming and mobile apps increased by more than 300 percent in the past two years.
We are absolutely passionate about mobilizing Christ-followers to use radio to introduce Jesus Christ as the Hope of the world to those who live in North Africa and the Middle East.
You can touch the lives of individuals in this region by helping them hear radio programs that become friends on their journey to knowing Jesus Christ.
