Scope and Content Note

116 cassette tapes of Bilak's radio program "Messenger of Truth." X number of tapes from ....

Biographical Note

Bilak launched a radio ministry, primarily aimed at Ukraine and other countries behind the Iron Curtain, in 1969 from Lausanne, Switzerland. The tapes are labelled with program or sermon titles and are numbered. The 116 tapes in this collection do not represent a complete run as some are missing. From hand-written notations on some tapes, they appear to date from 1990. The accrual (2015.003) includes tapes and reels from as early as 1974.

Donor Note

Donated by Jack Boyd, ACU faculty emeritus and member at Minter Lane Church of Christ, supporting congregation for Bilak's ministry beginning in 1974.

Arrangement

Tapes are numbered. This collection does not contain, though, a complete run as there are missing items.
