The Tide® Ministry hosts major events in February to ignite the Body of Christ for the sake of the world

The Tide® Radio Ministry Shares the Gospel in 39 Countries on Three Different Continents

February 7, 2022

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.— The Tide® ( ministry, a global outreach that utilizes radio broadcasts to share the Gospel of Christ in 39 countries on three different continents, is continuing to celebrate 75 years of ministry around the world, with millions hearing the Gospel and accepting Christ as their Savior.

Don Shenk, director of The Tide® Ministry, commented, “We are extremely blessed to be able to celebrate over seven decades of our global radio outreach, with tens of thousands of people hearing the Gospel through our radio broadcasts. God certainly had a plan for Reverend Byers’ vision all those years ago!

“We aren’t just stopping at 75 years, though,” Shenk continued. “We are looking to the future of our ministry and plan to continue to share the Gospel for the next 75 years to come.”

To celebrate this monumental achievement, The Tide® ministry is hosting two major events in the month of February. The first is Piercing Word Scripture Dramatization: The One Story on February 19. Piercing Word is an innovative new way to look at the Bible story—by using Scripture as the script, highly trained actors will enact the Bible and bring it to life for the audience. The mission of Piercing Word is to ignite passion for the Word of God in the heart of the Church, which aligns strongly with the mission of The Tide® ministry.

Additionally, The Tide® ministry is hosting their “Your Soles, Their Souls” shoe drive. The goal is to gather 2,500 pairs of shoes by the end of the month and The Tide® ministry has already received over 700 pairs! The shoes collected will benefit micro businesses in developing countries around the world, and the funds raised from this campaign will benefit Gospel outreach through literacy classes in India. While the campaign is ongoing throughout the month, The Tide® ministry is hosting a drive-through drop off event on February 26. For more information, click here.
