After many years of operating as HCJB (in one form or another), the ministry is changing its name. In 1931 Clarence Jones, Reuben Larson and others started station HCJB in Quito, Ecuador. The radio and healthcare ministries they initiated way back then continue to live on today.
I’m super excited to tell you that HCJB Global is now Reach Beyond, with the motto: “The Voice and Hands of Jesus. Together.”
HCJB was, and Reach Beyond is, about equipping and empowering our national partners to do the ministries that God has called them to do. With this model of missions, we are recognizing and respecting our national partners the incredible skills and abilities that God has given them to reach their own people. In a difficult embrace of this model, the organization has also given the radio station that started the whole thing, HCJB AM/FM of Quito, Ecuador, to the Ecuadorian nationals -- and along with it, the radio station's call letters, and our (former) name. We will continue to partner with HCJB radio, but it is now in the hands of the Ecuadorians, who are best able to minister to their own people.
Through your faithful effort, you help us “reach beyond” our comfort zones and perceived limitations to take the gospel to the unreached and serve those in need.
Be sure to visit the organization's new website at reachbeyond.org to learn more about the fresh presentation of the vision that Clarence Jones and so many others established in years past. And please be sure to pray that God will continue to multiply efforts so that His name is declared and glorified among the nations!
