Celebrating 71 Years of Radio Ministry

Last year at this time, we were excited to be celebrating 70 years of effectively reaching people for Christ through radio ministry. This year, there’s not so much fanfare, as The Tide ministry passes another annual milestone and turns 71. Why is it that we treat some anniversaries as more significant than others? Thankfully, that’s not how God views us. Every life has equal value to God, and Jesus gave His life on the cross so that anyone and everyone who believes in Him can have new life and enter into eternal fellowship with God.That’s the message we continue sharing through heart language radio programs and will remain our core mission and purpose as long as there are people who have not yet heard about Jesus and what He has done for them.

Muslim Student Comes to the Aid of a Christian After Listening to The Tide®

The Tide® recently heard an amazing story about two students in Nigeria—one Muslim and one Christian—who were connected because of a Tide gospel radio program.Director Don Shenk reported that a Christian student in Nigeria was accused of blasphemy by Muslim students, then beaten into a state of unconsciousness.

What an amazing testament to God’s power to change hearts through His Word.”The Tide ministry’s newest initiative, called “Every Knee, Every Tongue,” allows people to help place g…

A sampling of letters from those whose hearts have been touched by The Tide radio programs. Full names and location are not included to protect identity.AlbaniaI love listening to Pastor Hervin. I learned a lot from the Bible because of his radio show. His passion for the Word of God is contagious. I’m so happy now we can download the programs from the website. I share them with my colleagues at work. They are not believers but they always have those moments when they need God and are more open to hear. Pastor Hervin’s programs help me to share my faith with them and other family members. – MarselaI listen to Radio 7 all the time, and the broadcast has literally changed my life. I’m a university professor, and I believe God has placed me in the midst of students to make a difference for God’s Kingdom. I often share my faith with my students and encourage them to search for God and know Him. Pastor Hervin’s program is a unique program to help us all know God. He is a great teacher of t…
