The SonSet radio is a fixed-tuned portable radio receiver that can deliver the message of hope and reconciliation through Jesus Christ to hundreds of thousands of people who have never heard the gospel.
These hand-held radios are tuned to the specific radio frequency of our local ministry partners. With the antenna incorporated into the lanyard, listeners can receive broadcasts while they work. When it’s time to recharge, the listener has the option of using the solar panel on the back or the USB power source on the side.
SonSet Solutions is launching a campaign to fund 10,000 SonSet radios in 2018! A single SonSet radio costs $40 to reach the hands of our ministry partner. It is our desire to supply Radio Usalama FM (Uganda), Radio Logos (Peru), Radio Évangile Développement (Burkina Faso), Wantok Radio Light (Papua New Guinea), and others with these radios to expand their ministry and deepen their impact.
First, we ask that you pray for the “SonSet Radios: Delivering God’s Word” campaign and the impact of the radios in the lives of those that receive them. Secondly, you can encourage your local church to participate in the campaign! Tell your pastor, spread the word to your friends, or get your small group involved.
We want to challenge churches to come together to supply God’s word to our partners all over the globe through SonSet radios. Here are some ways your church can get involved:
- Prayer – We are asking the Lord to supply funds that will enable us to send out more radios than we have ever attempted before. We are asking that the Lord call upon His people to be involved in this campaign in a special way.
“Then he said to his disciples, ‘the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.’” -Matthew 9:37-38
- Church Campaign – Do a funding campaign in your church for SonSet radios. Your church can use SonSet radios to highlight one of our missionaries during your annual mission conference. Host an event like a missions dinner, craft fair, or Christmas tea and donate a portion of the proceeds toward SonSet radios. Use SonSet radios as the fundraising project for a VBS, kid’s club missions project, or your small group!
“The SonSet radio project fit in perfectly with our VBS program. We updated kids nightly on how many radios were going to be able to be distributed with our offerings. It created an excitement for giving to share Jesus. It doesn’t get any better than that!” –Pastor Christopher Baker, Bethel Christian Church
- Radio Preparation – A group from your church can help us do final quality assurance checks on the radios and prepare the radios for shipment.
We have a number of resources available for your use during and after your campaign. We will send you brochures, links to videos about our partners and SonSet radios, a sample SonSet radio programmed to one of your local Christian radio stations, and information about each of the ministries involved in the campaign. We will also coordinate with you to schedule a work team from your church to help us prepare the radios for shipment. Click to learn more about our resources.
To help spread the gospel worldwide, your church group and individual volunteer involvement are key—whether in creating a campaign, preparing the radios or giving financially.

We would love to talk to you about how your church can participate in this important campaign to make the gospel accessible to those living in isolated communities throughout the world!
