The Tide: Men Grow Beards as Gospel Witness Multiplier

Register for Year Beard!

This time next year, commitments made in the heart will be visible on the faces of men wearing quizzically long beards — and as a result, potentially 1 million people around the globe in countries closed to Christianity could hear the name of Jesus Christ.

A new group of men is forecast to take up The Tide®( ministry’s Year Beard® challenge in 2021, growing out their facial hair to help offer hope to many people across the world. Participants commit to skipping shaving for a 12-month, 6-month, 3-month, or — for babyfaces — 1-month period and to raising support and awareness for The Tide ministry’s world mission projects.

The Tide ministry is actively seeking men, nationwide, with a faith commitment to Christ and a willingness to grow a beard by taking up the 2021 Year Beard® challenge. Visit to watch videos of past participants who share their joys and challenges of not shaving for a whole year.
