Choosing Good Leaders is a radio Bible study series used in local churches.
The Indian subcontinent, where an astonishing 97% of the population hasn’t yet heard the Gospel, is one of the largest mission fields in the world. The Hindi language ministry, led by Dr. A.K. Lama, in partnership with Good Books Educational Trust and Words of Hope, uses a variety of media to proclaim the whole story of God’s redemption through Christ Jesus. New believers in Christ find discipleship opportunities from listener groups fostered by Hindi ministry teams.
More than 80% of the population of Indonesia adheres to the Muslim faith. Only 15% identify themselves as Christians.

In a technologically advanced culture saturated with Buddhist and Shinto practices, less than 2% of the Japanese population openly professes Christianity.

Thirty-five years ago, when Back to God Ministries International began radio outreach in the Russian language, the evangelical Christian church was largely underground.
