Radio Ministries

The “air force” for Gospel-powered transformation

Favor operates two radio stations in Gulu, Uganda, and Juba, South Sudan, that reach communities and individuals who would otherwise not hear God’s Word at the right place, in the right time.

Using Radio to Spread the Gospel

Radio is the most accessible form of media in these regions to spread the Gospel to large audiences. Muslims can listen to the Gospel and teaching without repercussions. It’s the greatest vehicle for reaching rural as well as urban areas, danger zones or peaceful districts, business offices, homes, and the most remote villages disconnected from development. People from all walks of life listen to radios in their homes, while working, and on bicycles.

Radio MapGovernments and communities have acknowledged the immense value of the radio in shaping perspectives and informed decision-making processes, as well as accelerating learning. Foremost is the Gospel, then we also use it for training on health education, businesses, family and social values, post-war recovery, and much more. Our programming is a mix of teaching, music, news, testimonies, prayer, preaching, education, and more. Favor stays on the cutting edge of programming, production, and marketing, in order to strive for financial sustainability.

2 Million Listeners

As we bring healing and hope to the people in all directions, we reach out to almost 2 million listeners throughout northern Uganda, and about 20,000 throughout the South Sudan region where our booster is located. This is due to the low height of our in-town booster in Juba, but we look forward to this number reaching over 1 million, as a new booster is constructed at our station site.

Radio is Bridging the Gap

The radio is also a bridge that helps people reconcile and addresses the trauma resulting from the effects of war and conflicts through the love of Jesus Christ. People can hear testimonies and resolutions of transformed lives in their own language. It helps heal the country and raises awareness of the love of Christ. It also helps squash the stigma and rumors and superstition which are prevalent. The radio ministry helps bring about truth and cohesiveness so needed in the communities by developing followers of Christ. Favor FM is the first licensed all-Christian radio in northern Uganda and S. Sudan.

All means available are used to touch hungry hearts with gospel music, preaching and prayer, local pastors and teachers, Bible School on air, and more. We have become one of the HIGHEST preferred radio stations in the region in both nations, with a high level of daily community involvement and call-ins. These daily calls are for prayer, testimonies, discussion, or question and answer sessions with local leaders. Over 200 calls come in per day. Favor’s stations are powerful tools for education, training, development, community updates, and national transformation.

Lives are being changed, people are accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior, the sick are getting healed right away, lame are walking, blind are seeing…all during our daily prayer session over the radio! They call in and come in, and our Favor Radio team visits them in their villages and communities after their testimonies, to give them Bibles and validate their recorded testimonies.

Excitement is in the air, and the power of God is moving through the airwaves, touching hearts and capturing lives, all for His glory!!

Thank you for helping us with two powerful radio stations that are now recapturing the airwaves of east Africa: FAVOR FM in Gulu, northern Uganda, and FAVOR FM in Juba, South Sudan! We are also looking into expanding our reach by transmitting the Gospel even farther…into Sudan, Chad, Ethiopia, Somalia, and nations surrounding us.

Two Example Testimonies

Man listens to Favour FM and receives sight from God!

Tom Ocana has been blind right from birth, and because of his visual impairment, has faced many challenges. Physical movement was one of his greatest challenges, and he always needed to travel with a trusted friend or family member when navigating unfamiliar places. He could not work to provide for himself or his family.

Tom has tried many different things in order to recover his sight…but all have failed. After spending money in different health facilities and even with witchdoctors, he finally decided to settle home without any hope of ever seeing. Due to his permanent impairment, he tried to join the School of the Blind in Gulu…but was unsuccessful, because he couldn’t travel from Nwoya district to Gulu district on his own.

Just when he’d almost given up all hope, Tom decided to listen to the Word of God…and the only reliable source was Favour FM. One day, one of our pastors was preaching about receiving the Word of God. Tom immediately received it and decided to call into the radio for prayer for salvation and healing!

God saved him…AND healed him instantly and HE RECEIVED HIS SIGHT!

He has now become one of the greatest evangelists in his village! Many who had never believed before heard his story and flocked to his home to confirm the news! Because of his testimony, many have received Jesus as Savior!

Our radio team visited him in the village and found he had started his own business. Now that he can see, he is able to work, and has learned to tailor and opened up a shop! 

God gives woman a baby boy after her salvation by radio!

Kevin lived in total shame and rejection. When she got married, she had looked forward to having children and a family. However, a doctor told her she was barren, which brought  rejection in her home and the community. In her town, women who are not able to bear children are sometimes shamed.

One morning she was listening to the preaching over the radio and became determined to put her faith in Jesus Christ. She called in and was prayed for, and received Jesus as her Savior. In that moment He also touched her body and healed her!

Kevin traveled all the way from her village to share with the radio team the joy of her salvation and show off her little baby boy. Once again, the doctors were proved wrong! She called her baby, Emmanuel, which means God is with us! She can’t thank the ministry enough for changing her life through the radio program…now, she has a settled family.

Along with prayer and teaching, each HOP functions as a community hub for empowered outreach that brings Christian influence to all levels of society from the poorest to the most powerful. Care for the poor is not enough, every level of society must be addressed up to its decision-makers for chang.

A Word from Favor

“You want God to do the impossible? Put your feet into the impossibility, and watch God divide the water… You watch God do the supernatural, but go step on it. Go step on it.”
