From April 24 to May 3 the Director of The Tide joined a team of North
American pastors on a vision trip to South Korea. The trip was
organized and sponsored by Global Education Mission (GEM) to enable
ministry leaders from the USA to observe mission outreach opportunities
in South Korea, and to dialogue with South Korean pastors. The team
spent three days in Seoul and five days at the Global Vision Christian
School (GVCS) in Mungyeong. The itinerary included meetings with Korean
pastors and also visits to significant cultural, political, and
historical locations. The team was given a well rounded exposure to the
political and cultural history of Korea and the current state of the
Church in South Korea.
The Tide® global radio ministry has been working in India for almost 40 years, and currently produces Christian radio programs in seven languages there. However, there are still many more people to reach with the messages of Jesus Christ.
“The Tide ministry recently unveiled its 2016 expansion goals,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “And one of those important goals is to initiate a radio program in the Telugu language, spoken by 74 million people in India. While a church group is working to plant churches among the Telugu people in remote villages, The Tide ministry hopes to assist them with a Christian radio broadcast in their own language so they can hear the saving message of Jesus Christ in the language they were born to speak.” Read More

While The Tide’s one program in Albania airs two days a week, the ministry’s goal for 2016 is to air its two other Albanian-language programs a second day each week as well. This will potentially increase the number of people who tune in and hear the Gospel message!” Read More...
The Tide® global radio ministry has been sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ for 70 years.
