Guidelines Establishes 1st Christian Radio Station for Filipinos on Palawan Island

Guidlines Ministries-PhillipinesGuidelines International Ministries, in partnership with the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC), recently set up the first Gospel-broadcasting radio station on the island of Palawan in the Philippines as part of a new effort.

DZRK FM 106.3 on the island of Palawan is the first of about a half-dozen stations that Guidelines is looking to establish in areas of the Philippines where there is no Christian programming.

According to a report earlier this month by Guidelines, the organization provided the station transmitters, development funds, and the first year of operating expenses to DZRK. FEBC, meanwhile, trained volunteers to operate the station.

Community partners will be responsible for operating expenses, and the programming of DZRK will be completely contextualized to the community because it will be produced in the community, for the community. Programming will cover health features, literacy, and educational topics as well as Bible teaching. 

“The Palawano, Cuyonon, Tagbanua, and Molbog people groups of Palawan will be served by the tiny, efficient station,” Guidelines reported. 

Working with local churches, the station will also distribute solar powered radios that are tuned exclusively to the station.

Plans are underway for the second station of Guidelines’ Legacy Project. In consideration is the area around Tacloban City, which was largely destroyed by Super Typhoon Yolanda late last year.
