Their philosophy of radio is more
important than just the "know-how" of how to hold a microphone or how to interview.
According to Whistling Frog, their
team has trained staff and volunteers at
the BBC, Trans World Radio in the UK, Radio Worldwide, UCB and at many media
conferences. They have also planned and
taught radio courses in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Romania, Kosova,
Spain, North Africa and West Africa.
Many of these courses have been
part of HCJB's Radio Planting ministries, helping local Christians around the
world to set-up community-based radio stations to reach their neighbors with
the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Radio planting is one of their
fastest-growing ministries, as new stations have been installed and people have
been given training on every continent. Since
1990, more than 300 radio stations have been planted in more than 40 countries.
The planted stations are locally run and independent of HCJB.
A two-week residential course
with Radio Worldwide in Leeds starts July 5-18. Another course with Canaan
College runs for 10 Wednesdays starting Sept. 17 at the HCJB Global-UK
office in Bradford. Click here for more information.
