HCJB Global would need to undergo a substantial transformation if it was to truly attempt to accomplish its part in making sure everyone could hear the gospel in a language they can understand. It became clear that the only way this goal could be met was through partnerships with believers, the local church and local Christian ministries to produce programming and then help them start their own local radio stations.
The mission began by moving staff and opening offices in other regions of the world. Our engineering staff began developing a small transmitter and portable studio that could easily carried inside of suitcases.
HCJB Global's "radio planting" ministry began in 1992 with the inauguration of a partner Christian radio station in Bakavu, Zaire (now Democratic Republic of Congo). Since that time HCJB Global has helped partner ministries start more than 400 Christian radio stations around the world in more than 100 countries.
