A milestone has been passed. HopeFM, after years of preparation, is now on the air in Sweden. The prayers of faithful evangelical Christians in that very secular country have been answered. Friends and partners within the country and without, including National Religious Broadcasters, are rejoicing as a 24/7, professionally produced Christian radio witness is on the air in Linköping, Sweden. This university town about two hours outside Stockholm, is a wonderful launching pad for this ministry. Other frequencies around the country, including the capital city of Stockholm, will follow as God opens doors and as Christians step in to support this critical work.
For decades the Christian world view has been under attack in Sweden. The results have been devastating for the cause of the Gospel. Up until now there has been no professionally produced, consistent Gospel witness through Christian radio in Sweden. Now...that has changed.
Roger Arnfjell, Nathan Quist, and a group of dedicated believers has been working for several years to establish HopeFM. Their aim is to enable Sweden's small number of evangelical Christians to carry the Gospel beyond church walls in significant ways for the first time in decades.
HopeFM is also on the Internet 24/7 at www.hopefm.se. Its goal is for the highest professional quality while providing Sweden with uplifting and positive Christian music in both Swedish and English. As the ministry grows it will include evangelistic and Christian counseling programs to meet the spiritual and personal needs of today's Swedish culture.
Challenge gifts and pledges have been made by individual NRB members. Christians in Sweden are stepping up to the challenge. Yet there is much to do for this significant witness to be sustained over the long term. The work so far has been accomplished by committed people donating their time and expertise. Now that staff is being added, the additional expenses need to be covered. Help meet this challenge with a campaign on air or with your individual gift.
COST: Up to $125,000
