The Tide ministry is pleased to announce The Byers Legacy Club. Rev. Charlie Byers had a vision for using radio to broadcast Biblical messages and founded The Gospel Tide Hour in 1946. Radio was an emerging technology at that time and remains an effective way to teach and reach people today.

The Byers Legacy Club is a formal way to recognize donors who have chosen to remember The Tide ministry in their estate. A stunning plaque has been created that already contains the names of 14 families who have included The Tide in their wills. The plaque is on display in our office, and new names will be added annually.

We announced The Byers Legacy Club at our promotional dinners in September. Since then, three more families have joined the club! You too may have your name listed on the plaque by indicating that you have included The Tide ministry in your estate. This is a simple yet significant way you can help evangelize the nations as we “creatively share the Good News of Jesus Christ through media and partnerships.”

Byers Legacy Club donors will be able to experience giving joy in an eternal way. We believe this is especially meaningful for those who knew Charlie well so they may show lifelong support for the ministry he started and served so faithfully.

If you have questions about estate planning or would like to discuss The Byers Legacy Club, we can visit with you in our office or in your home. Contact us at or call (877) 859-5484.

We thank the Lord for placing global radio ministry on the heart of Rev. Charlie Byers, and it is our privilege to honor him in this way.
