Nick Kalivoda (1922-2013) was the founder of this independent Bible teaching and equipping ministry located in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. It began with members of Mr. Kalivoda's local church Bible class suggesting that his clear teachings would benefit others beyond that class. With their voluntary and unsolicited support for the costs for its initial 15-minute radio broadcasting of expository teaching of the New Testament, the seeds of Radio Bible Courses, Ltd. were sown. It grew, and the radio portion of Radio Bible Courses, Ltd. now reaches all of Louisiana, other areas along the Gulf Coast, Texas to Florida, and a worldwide audience through its daily podcast.
The teaching portion of Radio Bible Courses, Ltd. began in 1976 when Mr. Kalivoda began offering courses on the Bible and Bible Archeology through the Louisiana State University Division of Continuing Education. Upon his retirement from the University and the official formation of the Radio Bible Courses, Ltd. in 1986, Nick's popular courses became the core of what is now the Radio Bible Courses, Ltd. teaching and equipping ministry.
Later, blessed with continuing unsolicited givings, RBC began to financially support other proven and mature ministries which championed evangelism, growth in THE FAITH, and care for the physical and spiritual needs of others, especially those believers around the world who suffer for their faith in the risen Christ.
