Program areas at RZIM

International Outreach: Established in Canada, The United Kingdom, India, Singapore, and Hong Kong. The Ministry helps to financially support all of these independent entities (except for Canada). The annual grant amounts for each of the affiliates are proposed in the initial budget draft for each fiscal year and approved by the Board of Directors. Each of the affiliates submits budgets and reports on how the funds are being spent. In addition, management personnel from the U.S. Headquarters makes periodic visits to the regions for audit and oversight purposes.
Radio Outreach: RZIM produces two radio programs: a weekly 30-minute program entitled "Let My People Think" (LMPT) and a daily 15-minute offering called "Just Thinking." The programs are available on radio, satellite, and the worldwide web. Foreign language versions of LMPT are also being broadcast. In addition to educating listeners in the fields of apologetics and evangelism, the programs also promote RZIM conferences and other resource products offered by the Ministry.
Conferences, Lectures, Seminars: RZIM has a fourfold vision: evangelism, apologetics, spiritual disciplines, and training. This vision is accomplished through conferences, lectures, and seminars administered by Dr. Ravi K. Zacharias and other members of his team where the Gospel is presented in support of the claims of Jesus Christ.
