About FEBCanada

Who We Are

FEBCanada is an interdenominational, non-profit organization — incorporated in the Province of British Columbia in 1964.
As an autonomous member of FEB Radio International, the ministry publicizes and promotes global Christian broadcasting within Canada … and financially supports member organizations overseas, which are actively involved in the synergistic broadcast mandate of the missionary radio network.

Our Mission

FEB Radio International exists for the sole purpose of bringing the love of God to the world — by developing evangelistic and discipleship programs, for broadcast to its global audience.
The goal is to broadcast the Good News of Jesus Christ in the “heart” languages of its listeners, so that many people will come to know Him as Saviour … and learn to obey and serve God as members of a local body of believers (where possible).


Our Vision

FEBCanada desires to promote the overseas mission of FEB Radio International — by encouraging Canadian Christians to participate in the radio ministry through prayer, financial contributions, and volunteering.


The Nation

To help fulfill the objective of encouraging Christians to participate in FEB Radio International’s global ministry, FEBCanada shares what God is doing through its multi-language broadcasts — at friendship dinners, via personal contact, through literature distribution, at Christian colleges, in church services and meetings.
The Canadian ministry operates recording studios in the Metro Vancouver head office, and in satellite studios located in Metro Toronto and Edmonton. Programs are produced in Cantonese and Mandarin by the Chinese ministries department — for broadcast to Mainland China, and locally in Vancouver.


The World

Since 1948, FEB Radio International has been carrying out the mandate to bring “Christ to the World by Radio”. While radio continues to be an important voice in a spiritual wilderness, new technologies are being added to the network’s communications toolbox. Whatever the innovation, radio continually provides the “wireless word” to many nations.
The ministry’s fundamental commitment has never wavered, in broadcasting the Gospel to people around the world who are isolated by economic, educational, geographic, political, and religious barriers.
Many of these “forgotten people” of society are located in countries with tremendous political and cultural opposition to the Gospel, and therefore have limited access to Christian resources.


The Method

From its inception, FEB Radio International has endeavoured to use national directors and ethnic broadcasters to produce culturally relevant programs. These native staff members speak the local language fluently, and know the culture of the people — this makes them more effective, in sharing the message of Christ.
The introduction of indigenous broadcasters, has created the need to develop local leadership … and establish stations and studios in countries around the world. Today, all ministry offices are overseen by local national boards — which allows each country to make decisions appropriate to their culture and standards, under the umbrella of FEB Radio International’s leadership structure.


The Media

For more than 60 years, radio has proven to be an excellent way to reach people in almost any location or circumstance. The radio network utilizes high power AM, FM, or shortwave transmitters — to deliver evangelistic and discipleship programs to some of the most remote and needy areas of the globe, as well as the densely populated urban centres.
Currently, the radio ministry produces more than 700 hours of programming a day in over 100 languages — aired from 128 stations and/or transmitters around the world, of which 42 are owned and operated by FEB Radio International. The network’s radio signal can be heard in scores of countries — to a potential listening audience of nearly two-thirds of the world’s population.
When new technologies emerge that show promise in reaching special people-groups or large numbers of people, the radio ministry makes use of them where applicable, i.e., internet and satellite broadcasting, podcasting, MP3 players … and most recently, cell phones⁄memory cards⁄speaker boxes to reach listeners in restricted countries, so that people can listen privately at any time.
More than 1.25 million listeners respond annually to ministry broadcasts — by means of letters, phone calls, e-mails, and text messages. Many of the messages are miraculous accounts of how God is reaching people through the radio programs.
The ministry’s radio waves share the relevant and life changing message of Jesus Christ to millions of illiterate people who can hear, but are unable to read or write.
Since radio broadcasts can overcome natural and man-made barriers, they can be heard in many countries and cultures that oppose Christianity. A seeking individual in a Communist, Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist home might be reluctant to open their door to a Christian, but would privately listen to a radio program in their quest for the Truth.

Our Ministry

National staff members write, record, and host most of the language programs that FEB Radio International broadcasts – the remainder are provided by other Christian organizations.
Programs include Bible studies, preaching, teaching, music, counselling, and live call-in – all designed to introduce listeners to Christ, disciple and encourage them, and train many for church leadership.
Many listeners cannot afford to respond – or choose not to, for fear of persecution. At times, authorities intercept written communications. Typically, appreciation is often expressed with questions – or requests for help.
Staff members respond to listeners’ requests with Bibles, booklets, literature, and counsel. Where the situation allows, personal contact is arranged … and listeners are encouraged to join local Christian fellowships.
In addition to regular listener follow-up, CDs of broadcast programs are made available. A number of countries have developed interactive websites, which feature internet broadcast streaming, forums, and chat rooms.
Seminary-level courses and⁄or Bible correspondence classes, are offered in some countries – to train and equip lay and church leaders, to teach Bible studies, and assist local churches.
In other countries, marriage seminars instruct couples on how to nurture their marriages … and listener rallies encourage people to listen to the radio.
Specialized programs for children and teens, offer age-appropriate teaching about God’s love for them.
In several countries, ministry musical groups travel as missionaries – spreading the Word through song, dance, and drama.


Radio and Relief

Since 2004, FEB Radio International has been working to improve and broaden its disaster response capabilities in countries where the ministry operates — by developing portable standby radio stations, which can be moved and placed “on-air” within 72 hours following a major natural disaster.
To date, the ministry has responded to disasters in India, Indonesia, and the Philippines — offering life-saving information, and distributing wind-up and battery-operated radios to people who have lost everything.
In a number of these broadcast areas, the ministry staff worked with health care professionals to assist the poor … and distribute food and clothing to communities, where help was urgently needed.
In a Southeast Asian country, a special one-to-one outreach ministry is offered to inmates of local prisons — where Christian literature, food, and toiletries are distributed. In another country, the ministry works alongside churches to provide housing for the poor.


Partnerships

FEB Radio International has developed ongoing partnerships with local church and para−church organizations around the world. During times of calamity, these affiliations make it possible for the radio network to help thousands of individuals — by broadcasting lifesaving information regarding the distribution of emergency resources: including food, medical help, and accommodation.
The radio ministry also partners with local churches and non−government organizations on a regular basis — to offer family seminars, concerts, children’s outreach, radio distribution, and other compassionate services.
The ministry has made partnership arrangements with a number of organizations — such as the Vietnamese Evangelical Church, Food for the Hungry, World Vision, Family Bible Hour, Russia Radio Bible Institute, and The Bible Society (to name a few).


Statement of Faith

We Believe:

  • The Bible is the inspired, inerrant, authoritative Word of God;
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;
  • In the Deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his imminent return in power and glory;
  • In the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit, for the salvation of lost and sinful man;
  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life;
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost — they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal damnation;
  • In the spiritual unity of believers in Christ.

Code of Ethics

Recognizing that FEBCanada supporters are financial partners in broadcasting the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the world, the Canadian ministry is committed to full disclosure.
Therefore, as stated in II Corinthians 8:20-21: “We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift. For we are taking pains to do what is right, not only in the eyes of the Lord but also in the eyes of men.” (NIV)
FEBCanada is also a member in good standing with the Canadian Council of Christian Charities (CCCC), and complies with its standards.
