Galcom’s Main Areas of Ministry

1. Radios and Audio Bibles

We provide solar-powered radios and audio players. Even for missions that are not engaged in radio broadcasting, distributing solar-powered, fix-tuned radios accelerates the evangelistic and church planting efforts of missionaries.

2. Christian Radio Stations

We are actively involved in providing radio studio and broadcasting equipment at the best possible prices to Christian radio stations around the world. Galcom technicians travel to many countries every year, assisting with licensing, transmitters, studio equipment, installations and broadcasting.
