While on a trip to North Africa in 2000, Clyde met Mustafa, a student open to the Gospel because of media he found through satellite television. On the same trip, a pastor he had just met surprised Clyde by saying “I sense the Lord is going to use you to reach millions through media.” Clyde couldn’t dismiss that God was confirming a new desire to use visual media to reach the lost. For the next seven years Clyde oversaw the development of some of the most innovative media-based outreach products in the world through the JESUS Film Project. In 2006, Clyde co-founded the Visual Story Network.
