FEBC recently launched its fifth Ukraine-based radio station in a town where no radio stations previously existed.
The ministry reported last month that local government and citizens of Nikolaevka – five hours south of Urkaine’s capital city, Kiev – “are excited about the new station and are already tuning in daily.”
“God is showing us so much favor, and we are excited for all the opportunities He is continuing to bring about,” the ministry added.
Earlier this year, FEBC launched a new station in Odessa, Ukraine – the third largest city in the country, with a potential listening audience of 1.2 million people. It also launched a station in the Eastern Ukraine city of Shastya, right in the heart of the region’s conflict zone.
“It’s because of this war that FEBC was granted permission to start broadcasting in the region, and other surrounding areas,” the ministry explained in a report this past summer. “FEBC’s messages of hope and peace are a welcome relief to those on both sides of the conflict who’ve fled their homes and lost family members.”
Altogether, FEBC now has five different stations broadcasting the Gospel in the country — with the opportunity to expand to more cities.
“God is moving the hearts of local officials to grant us licenses all across the country because they can see how the message of Jesus Christ is giving hope to their people,” FEBC reported. “The opportunities in Ukraine continue and we are so glad to be a part of God’s kingdom work in this country. Thank you for praying and supporting this ministry. God is truly making himself known in Ukraine.”
FEBC has been actively broadcasting in Ukraine for the past two decades through local stations. In 2012, its first FM station was opened in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.
