Matt’s Profile

An FEBC studio in Asia where many programmes are made and broadcast to millions!

Hi, I’m Matt Perry. Executive Director of FEBC – the Far East Broadcasting Company in New Zealand. FEBC is a global Christian radio network for outreach and discipleship. Our stations are scattered all over the majority world broadcasting Christ to the World by Media. Currently there are over 1,500 hours per day being broadcast in over 140 different languages!

This is my personal blog where I share insights into the world of missions and radio (especially). Because the Mission of God is a great passion for me I’d love to encourage you in your relationship with Jesus, and in following him as he fixes the world! My blog posts are designed to:

  • encourage you as you follow and involve yourself with God on His mission, and
  • enthuse you with some of the ways that radio is inspiring faith, equipping people for life, and celebrating Jesus Christ.

I’ve spent the last 26 years serving in various mission roles. I’ve been immersed in the Middle East talking to people about Isa Al-Masih (Jesus the Messiah), studying missiology and anthropology, and teaching and training others in New Zealand to participate positively in the mission of God. I have a Masters Degree in Theology and Intercultural Studies from Columbia International University. Now in New Zealand, I’m still keenly interested in the Arab world (along with its coffee and sweets!), yet I follow and comment on mission issues all over the world.

I welcome your comments and participation in these blog posts. You can also contact me via email, or engage via the FEBC NZ Facebook page.
