Pray for special programs that explain the meaning of Christmas to the listeners in Russia and Ukraine. We planned special interviews, concerts and children’s specials for this Christmas season.
STUDIO REMODELING IN SLAVYANSK
We are remodeling our studio building in Slavyansk, Ukraine. We need additional $2,500 for building materials to make sure that the studios are up to standards. Several hours of life-changing programming is broadcast daily from these studios.
PRAYING FOR NEW STATION IN POKROVSK CITY
We received a preliminary decision for a license in Pokrovsk city, Ukraine. Praise God! This will be FEBC’s sixth station in Ukraine. We must raise $15,000 in the next six months to start broadcasting in 2018.
JEWISH EVANGELISM IN UKRAINE
We need $2,000 to launch programs for Ukrainian Jews in 2018. We have broadcasters who are ready to start producing the program. Please pray for these evangelists and for our ability to establish a small studio in Odessa, where there is a sizable Jewish Christian population.
NEW MEDIA INITIATIVES
We are having unprecedented success using online tools to reach millions of Russian listeners this year. We developed several unique techniques that let us reach multiple new audiences such as teens, new atheists, cultural Muslims and other specific groups and tell them about Jesus’ love. We need to hire a specialist to help us get our programs to more people. And we need to spend some funds for promotional needs. Overall, online listeners are three times less expensive to reach, in comparison to traditional radio. We hope to be reaching more than 5 million listeners monthly by the end of 2018.
TEAM DEVELOPMENT: TRAINING
We are constantly working on helping team members, both radio programmers and technicians to raise their professional level. In addition to regular internal seminars, we help our team members receive theological and professional education. Please support our educational fund for Russia and Ukraine.
