The Discipleship Hour is a radio ministry specializing in broadcasting overseas. It is in
third world countries that 95% of the world's population lives - mostly without the hope
that comes through the gospel of Jesus Christ. It is ironic that by contrast, 97% of evangelical dollars are spent in America where only 5% of the world's population resides.
The Discipleship Hour is attempting to reach the people outside the borders of the United States. About half of the world's population has never heard the wonderful name, Lord Jesus. Many are drifting aimlessly through life, without hope. Radio broadcasting remains the best medium to reach those searching for answers to life's questions. These are the ones whose heart is wide open to the gospel message and whose thirst for the word of God is immense.
The Discipleship Hour can be heard in the Caribbean and Central America through Trans World Radio in Bonaire and also their satellite system that covers the islands. Our broadcast is heard twice a week in Brazil in the Portuguese language through the facilities of H.C.J.B. in Quito Ecuador.

Also the Discipleship Hour is heard in English twice a week in East Africa through the facilities of Radio Africa.
Our ministry is based upon the fundamental view that the Bible is inerrant and God-breathed and that salvation and growth can only come through the preaching and teaching of the Word. We are one of the few radio ministries that teach the Bible on a verse by verse expository, going through the entire New Testament and a great portion of the Old. Our goal is to make God's word clear to the lost and to teach God's people sound doctrine in order that they may grow.
