In only a little more than six minutes – that’s about a minute per decade! – this brand-new video provides a bullet-train tour of the ministry’s history while featuring a sampling of its diversity in staff, cultures, languages and locations. Produced by TWR’s growing young video department, TWR: The First Sixty is another highlight in the yearlong commemoration of the ministry’s 60th anniversary of broadcasting.

TWR Global Video Coordinator Tyler Gates, who wrote, shot and edited the video, said what initially sounded like a simple idea for a video became very challenging.

“What I got to experience and understand is the huge amount of people in TWR who are being obedient to the calling and to understand the outcomes of that obedience,” he said. “… I don’t think anyone would have imagined what TWR has turned into today and all the different ways we proclaim the gospel. But there is a pattern in TWR of just being faithful to what God has called us to today.”
