CHAMBERSBURG, Pa.—Hundreds of teens and young adults will be introduced to the work of The Tide® ( global gospel radio ministry at the upcoming Uprise Fest, a two-day Christian music festival held at the Shippensburg Fairgrounds in Shippensburg, Pa.

“This high-energy music festival is a great way for The Tide ministry to reach young people who are excited about Jesus, and many are prepared to join our mission and share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “For more than 70 years, The Tide has been spreading the gospel with listeners around the world in their heart languages. Those who volunteer with us at Uprise will help explain how we can reach 20 people through radio for every one dollar someone generously donates to The Tide ministry. These conversations prove to be a simple yet powerful way that could open the door to share the life-changing truth of the gospel.”
