Many people have asked “How does BBN do it?”
“How can you broadcast conservative Christian radio in 8 languages and on the Internet twenty four hours a day, seven days a week – FREE OF CHARGE?”
“How can you make studying God’s Word available in 5 languages in BBNBI to 185 countries of the world - FREE OF CHARGE?”
Radio stations do cost big bucks and up keep for 200 stations is an enormous expense. Also start-up costs for new ministries and Bible Institutes in new languages are costly.
“Who pays for all this? How do you do this with no corporate or denominational under-writing? How do you manage to do this with no commercials on your stations?”
We operate by 3 Biblical principles (and have since BBN's inception in 1971).
1) We look to God to be the ultimate Supplier of our needs. (Philippians 4:19)
2) We encourage those who are blessed or helped spiritually by the ministry to do as instructed by Scripture to help supply our needs. (Galatians 6:6; I Corinthians 9:14)
3) Faith Promise. Listeners pray and ask God to give them wisdom as to what He would be pleased to have them financially share with us and they trust God to provide that amount. It is a promise of faith on their part and God’s provision on His part to make it happen. (II Corinthians 9:7-8)
We have done our part this past year in ministering to you and with God’s help we will continue. It’s your turn. If God has blessed you and ministered to your heart and life through this ministry – will you pray and ask God what He would be pleased to supply through you to us?
Our Annual Spring Shareathon begins April 6-8 (6 AM – 12 PM EST). Our Spring Shareathons raise the necessary funds to take care of special projects, such as: acquisition of new stations or new ministry advances, equipment upgrades, and maintenance of equipment and facilities to keep the ministry advancing. This sounds so unglamorous and non-urgent, but without this the ministry would skid to a halt and multiplied millions would be left without a daily gospel witness. Your gift is vital to this ministry. Please call us at 800-888-7077 and make your pledge. You can also give online at BBNRADIO.org.
Please pray that God will supply our needs and help us reach our goal of $980,000.
