United Christian Broadcasters Africa is a media ministry working in partnership with Radio Pulpit and UCB International, a global network of Christian radio and Television organisations. We focus on assisting emerging African broadcasters to enter the field of Christian media, particularly radio, by providing the equipment, training and mentorship.
UCB Africa is also the licence holder of the Word for Today, a daily devotional booklet written to act as a vitamin for your faith. It consists of two editions, The Word for Today aimed at adults, with daily readings based on Scripture, articles, and things to pray about, the Word For Today is designed to help you get into the habit of spending time with God every day. The Word4U2day, the second edition, is an alternative daily devotional aimed predominantly at young adults. It has daily readings based on the Bible, blended with thought-provoking articles on a variety of topics.
