Far East Broadcasting Corporation Intertiol, FEBC’s history dates back to the close of World War II in 1945. At that time, countless soldiers were returning
to the United States from the conflict in the Pacific. Newly aware of the great spiritual needs of Asia, Bob Bowman, John Broger and William Roberts were among those who had felt called of God to set up a radio ministry in Asia even before the war. They envisioned a ministry that would bring the Gospel to the millions in Asia. One country especially was in their hearts – Chi!
By early 1948, all early mission work in Chi was winding down and an altertive site was sought. John Broger searched around Asia for a likely place to locate FEBC’s radio ministry – and decided on the Philippines.
The first broadcast over local station KZAS (as it was then known) went on air in Manila on June 4, 1948. Intertiol broadcasts to Chi started the following year in 1949, and have since expanded to cover most of Southeast Asia, as well as Russia. Singapore-produced programs are also broadcasted daily over FM 102.3 - Voice of Grace.LTD, Singapore is a member of FEBC (Intertiol) and was set up in 1962 as a recording Studio. First located at a room in Tanglin Road flat, it moved to a bigger place at Jalan Minyak, then to another flat at Sophia Road in the 1960’s with local Singaporeans playing an active role in Broadcasting. FEBA, Singapore was incorporated as a public company limited by guarantee in 1974. As the work further expanded, FEBA LTD moved to Intertiol Plaza in 1979, and again moved to Maxwell House in 1988 and now in Skywaves Building near Balestier Road since 1996. FEBA Singapore has always been directed by a Singaporean Board.
