Building Ministry in Africa and Haiti
Our French media outreach is unique in that it’s not based in one central location. Instead, ministry centers are strategically located in places where we can use media to strengthen local churches and ministries through partnership—a partnership in which you, too, play an important role.
In Haiti, we partner closely with World Renew and Resonate Global Mission (formerly Christian Reformed World Missions) to bring a holistic mission approach. In the last three years, partnerships with Timothy Leadership Training Institute and Words of Hope have enabled us to expand ministry in Burkina Faso and Niger. Here, we’ve been amazed at the ways God has used radio broadcasts, Bible studies, and video ministry to proclaim the Gospel.

Radio Program/Bible Study: Choosing Good Leaders
Choosing Good Leaders is a radio program and Bible study series produced in partnership with the Timothy Leadership Training Institute (TLTI). The study is used within local churches in Burkina Faso, to help train first-generation Christians on how to choose church leaders. The corresponding radio program is currently broadcast on two stations in Burkina Faso and 22 in Haiti.
A Story From the French Ministry
The first time Bahati* heard biblical radio messages at her home in Niger, she was intrigued. She began listening as often as she could, but always in secret. Then one day, her father caught her.
Hearing the words from the radio speaker, Bahati’s father began questioning her. She knew she couldn’t hide it any longer so she told her father that she had left Islam behind to become a Christian.
That changed Bahati’s life forever.
Our radio programs currently air on 411 stations in 3 countries.
More than 2,024 people took part in our in-person Bible studies last year.
More than 6,800 print devotionals are distributed every month.
“My hope is to guide the growing church in West Africa with sound Bible teaching through leadership training, radio program, and others means.”
