Reach Beyond (World Radio Missionary Fellowship)

Summary:  Reach Beyond (World Radio Missionary Fellowship) began in 1931 as a mission organization to Unreached people around the world, by sending missionaries and maximizing mass communication, healthcare services and training new Believers in turn to reach others.  Reach Beyond is broken down into four main program areas:

  1. Mass Communication:  Dynamic approach to each culture and audience, whether via FM, AM, shortwave, direct–to–home satellite, or the Internet. Reach Beyond missionaries work with local partners to plant radio ministries; Internet chat rooms open doors to people who do not listen to Christian radio, and shortwave and satellite broadcasts reach remote areas or into countries that are closed to missionaries. 
  2. Healthcare Services:    Providing patient care, medical education, and projects helping rural areas to improve sanitation, obtain clean water, setting up mobile medical clinics providing medical and dental treatment, and helping partner organizations to start medical ministries, and partners with relief organizations by sending emergency medical response teams to crisis areas.
  3. Advocating Missions:  Using churches as a platform to voice the need for worldwide missions through long and short-term missions, welcoming, praying, giving, and going.
  4. Training Believers:  Mobilizing and equipping Latin American believers to go where God has called them as part of the Great Commission.  In addition, training in various media methods such as radio production, communication theory, journalism, station management, technical maintenance, promotion, and cooperation.  And training healthcare professionals, and national church leaders.

Reach Beyond has helped establish radio stations in more than 100 countries, broadcasting in more than 100 languages and dialects.  It has established Christ-centered healthcare provided by hospitals, clinics, and community projects touching thousands of lives. 

Reach Beyond operates a ministry service center in Colorado Springs, Colorado and has ministries in Latin America, Europe/Euro Asia, North Africa and the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Asia-Pacific. 

Reach Beyond goes the extra mile in openness and transparency which should be commended.  They are not just steeped in old operating traditions for an excuse of not changing, but they are dynamic in examining what is the right thing to do and how to do it.  They are truly an example and leader that other mission organizations should examine and emulate.   They do not just talk a good game, they walk the walk.  

The aim of Reach Beyond is to see people everywhere trust in Christ as Savior, then fulfill the Great Commission by means of discipleship, using the tools of mass communication, healthcare services, advocating missions, and leadership training, which in turn creates sustainable and reproducible ministries.
