Galcom International to Celebrate 25 Years of Dynamic Outreach

Galcom While attending a Christian conference in 1988, Harold Kent, a businessman in Tampa, FL, heard that the major international radio ministries (TWR, HCJB, FEBC, ELWA, etc.) were cooperating in order to cover the world with short-wave radio in 140 languages. He thought, “I wonder how they know if anyone is listening?” Instantly, he sensed the Lord clearly impressing him to “make fix-tuned radios and distribute them to people around the world who have no way of hearing the Gospel.”

Around the same time, two other committed Christians received similar leadings: Ken Crowell, an engineering missionary in Israel, and Allan McGuirl, then Canadian Director of Gospel Recordings in Ontario, Canada. As documented in He Who Has Ears To Hear-The Galcom Story, the Lord sovereignly connected these three pioneering heroes and wove them together into a strong, three-fold cord.

In the process of pursuing their inspired vision, Galcom International was born on August 15, 1989. Today, Galcom exists to give help and tools to missionaries who have answered the call of Christ to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). More specifically, Galcom provides solar powered radios and audio players to missionaries who are then able to multiply their impact and reach more people and a larger area with the Gospel every day. Galcom is also actively involved in providing radio studio and broadcasting equipment at the best possible prices to Christian radio stations around the world.

Here’s a selected short-list of key milestones that Galcom has achieved over the last 25 years:
