Member Care Media

Member Care Media is a ministry of TWR specially prepared for cross-cultural workers whose obedience to the Great Commission has taken them to difficult regions.

Isolation due to culture, language, or religion can discourage otherwise healthy Christian expatriate workers. Missionaries, tentmakers, and Christians on foreign business assignment all need encouragement to keep the kingdom outlook on life that Jesus encouraged us to pursue, so that they will stay effective and fulfilled.

The program content not only reminds them of God’s promise that He is with them to the very end of the earth, but also addresses changing needs from recruitment to retirement.

TWR Women of Hope

TWR Women of Hope is a ministry of TWR that seeks to bring hope in Jesus to women around the world and across generations. It also seeks to educate, encourage and equip women to pray, listen, learn, grow and give through media, small group interaction and leadership development.

As women gain solid biblical teaching and experiential training, they encourage their families, local churches, communities and other women. Whatever the situation, TWR Women of Hope speaks the truth that Jesus is the only one who can provide perfect peace, hope and healing.

TWR RiverCross

The world’s vulnerable children need a bridge to hope. Their hearts have been broken by the trauma they have experienced. Even if they receive shelter, food, clothing, education, and clean water, if their hearts are not healed, they are likely to perpetuate cycles of trauma or continue to live as victims. And saddest of all, they could die without Christ.

Using biblically-based trauma-healing content wrapped in powerful stories designed to connect with hearts and promote healing, RiverCross builds bridges of hope so that these children can cross from a wilderness where their trauma defines them to the place where they experience the fullness of life that Christ intended for each one of them.

Champions Arise

There is a great need for mentoring, encouragement and discipling of men. Champions Arise is a men’s discipleship ministry which utilizes prayer, small groups, mass media, and technology to equip men to be all that God has called them to be. It seeks to encourage men to stand up and be the men God called them to be, and to run well in the race of life.
