Partnership Makes Radio Possible in Quebec
TWR Canada has been partnering in ministry with Aujourd'hui l'Espoir in Quebec for nearly 20 years. With the help of media partners such as The Peoples Church, Thru the Bible, Heralds of Hope and others, the gospel is being shared in Quebec.
Our media programs are paired with a follow-up ministry. We partner with local churches to provide connection and care for listeners interested in attending church and learning more about Christianity. In the video below, Sandra Ryan, Global Mission Pastor at The Peoples Church in Toronto, explains the importance of building relationships with our listeners.
Purchasing airtime on popular radio stations in Quebec has become increasingly expensive, but God has been clearing the way. In 2016, a vision grew for a Christian FM station to be built in Quebec, with repeater stations to be set up across the province. Five years and many prayers later, the CRTC has approved the application for a station to be set up in Brownsburg, Quebec!
A station manager has been hired, and the antenna should be in place and ready for testing during the winter period. The goal is to have the station fully running by the beginning of the spring.
One of our ministry partners, Galcom International, has already raised funds for the equipment and set-up of the station. TWR Canada has committed to continue helping Aujourd’hui L’espoir with funding for radio content and programming.
December 1st is Giving Tuesday. It is a global day of giving that happens each year after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, we are raising funds for the ministry in Quebec. There is a continued need for funding for the programming that will play on the new FM station in Quebec. Help us speak hope to the people of Quebec with Bible-centred programming!
With over 8 million people in Quebec and less than 1% identifying as evangelical Christians, the province of Quebec is considered an unreached people group. Most people in Quebec have never heard the gospel and the good news of Jesus. On December 1st, will you join us in speaking hope with Christian radio programs?
Please join us in prayer for those who will listen to the programs broadcast from these new stations. And thank you for your financial support of the ministry in Quebec. It is because of your commitment to the gospel that we can share the hope of Christ with the people of Quebec.
