Through ‘Have You Heard’ and ‘Stand Strong,’ The Tide® Radio Ministry Reaching New Body of Believer

Image
How many people do each of us walk by every day who do not know Jesus? The Tide® global radio ministry is encouraging Christians to share their faith with just 10 people over the next year.

“Jesus expects all of His disciples to tell others about Him and His love for them, but too often we don’t make intentional efforts to do this,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “Through a presence at the ‘Stand Strong’ Tour and other Christian events, The Tide ministry is reminding people to speak up about Jesus, by urging them to accept our “Have You Heard?” challenge. Already, hundreds have signed up, promising to ask just 10 people over the next 12 months, ‘Do you know what Jesus has done for you?’ This simple question can open up a great conversation about Jesus and his free gift of salvation – a gift worth sharing this Christmas.”

Albanian Listener Never Misses The Tide Radio Ministry's Program

Earlier this year, The Tide® global radio ministry launched its first Albanian-language Gospel radio program, and now more growth is underway. Already, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is making an impact in this predominantly Muslim nation. “Without The Tide ministry’s programs, people in Albania and neighboring Kosovo may have never heard about God and his love,” said The Tide Director Don Shenk. “We are so thankful that people are writing to us about how they are being touched by Jesus and His saving power. 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...
