Bible College by Radio was heard for the first time by five West African countries over ELWA’s 49 meter band in 1978. This Bible teaching ministry was so well received that on November 5, 1984, Rev. and Mrs. Chinchen began a second broadcast over the 25 meter band, reaching almost completely across the African continent, into such countries as Ghana, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Sudan and even the Cameroons.
In 1988, even before ground had been broken for the new college in Malawi, Bible College by Radio began a third broadcast over TransWorld Radio. Over TWR’s 31 meter band Rev. and Mrs. Chinchen’s teaching reached across all of East Africa into the English-speaking countries of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Kenya, Swaziland, Uganda and of course Malawi.
Bible College by Radio is a 30 minute program which is proceed in the recording studios of the African Bible College. Students at the College use their broadcasting training to assist in the production of this exciting outreach. Along will the daily Bible teaching, there is also a correspondence course. Students are utilized in this department to grade the returned lessons and to send out the free books, commentaries (when available) and certificates that are awarded to those successfully completing a course.
Bible College by Radio, with a potential listening audience of millions, has been used by God not only to reach people for Jesus Christ and to build them up in their Christian lives, but also to make African Bible College known throughout Africa.
