These programs are aired via AM and shortwave from FEBC International stations in Iba and Bocaue in the Philippines, and from Jeju in South Korea.

Liangyou Theological Seminary
This two-year Bible school offered on radio since 1992, trains pastors and lay leaders for ministry in China. As of July 2013, enrollment tops 13,200 students, of which 2,500 are active.
Chinese Minority-Language Broadcasts
For many years, FEBC-Hong Kong has been producing programs in China’s minority languages to seven ethnic groups in China, with a potential listening audience of several million people. Minority language broadcasts are not only effective in sharing the Gospel, they also help ethnic groups retain their own culture.
