UCB Papua New Guinea exists to bring the life changing gospel message of Jesus to the people of PNG so that lives are changed and discipled.
UCB prays that through the broadcasts of the radio station Laif FM local people will hear about Jesus and then through distributing The Word for Today their lives and families will be discipled. The work needs prayer and financial support to ensure smooth continuation of ministry services to the Papua New Guinea people. UCB Australia is providing oversight to this PNG media mission to help with technical and management support.
Through the work of UCB partnering with local groups like YWAM this project has been developed over several years.
