Our Leadership

Don Shenk, Director of The TideĀ®, consults with a Zimbabwean leader

The Tid®e international radio ministry is governed by a self perpetuating Board of Directors.  The Tide Constitution and By-Laws stipulates that there must be a minimum of seven active board members, but allows for a greater number as the need may arise.  The Tide Board of Directors meets regularly throughout the year to cast vision, monitor and advise on ministry progress and new initiative, and to give oversight to the Director.

The position of The Tide Director is currently filled by Don Shenk.  Don was born to missionary parents in what was then known as Rhodesia, and prior to joining The Tide in 2001 served as a missionary teaching at a Bible School in Zimbabwe, Africa. In addition to lecturing in the classroom at Ekuphileni Bible Institute Don served as Academic Dean, Director of Student Ministries, and also developed and implemented a manual skills training program to enable rural pastors to minister bi-vocationally. Through twenty eight years living in Zimbabwe, and numerous visits to Africa, Eastern Europe and India as a ministry administrator and resource person for church conferences and leadership training events, Don has acquired a wealth of international, cross cultural ministry experience. As the world becomes more and more of a global village, Don’s greatest passion is to reach people for Jesus Christ and to bring them into the Church.
