Trans World Radio
When a small Army-surplus transmitter went on the air in Tangier, Morocco, in early 1954, the first step had been taken toward developing one of the world’s largest evangelical media organizations – Trans World Radio.
The First Sixty offers an upbeat, whirlwind tour of TWR’s history since that very first broadcast across the Strait of Gibraltar. The historical highlights are recounted through staff “cameos” representing a wide range of TWR eras and locations.
The purpose of TWR is to assist the Church to fulfill the command of Jesus Christ to make disciples of all peoples, and to do so by using and making available mass media to:
- Proclaim the gospel of salvation to as many people as possible.
- Instruct believers in biblical doctrine and daily Christ-like living.
- Model our message through our corporate and cooperative relationships.
