The Ministry TYDEC leads is called "1•ZERO•NINE" which is branched off of Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth, and believe in your heart the Jesus Christ is lord, you will be saved". The one that calls himself TYDEC is governmentally named Tyler J. Gauthier. The reason he calls himself TYDEC is because of its meaning "Today You Decide Eternal Consciousness". TYDEC is a Hip-Hop/Pop artist who is inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ in the word of God. He tells his fans, friends and family that "He wants to decrease to let God in crease" "John 3:30".
TYDEC is from Lowell Massachusetts, born and raised in the Lowell/Tyngsboro area. He is determined to make known his faith in Jesus, and direct other brothers and sisters to an eternal rest, through Christ alone. TYDEC does not label himself as a Christian artist, but an artist that is living the life of a Christian. He writes music based of universal truth, and hope alone. TYDEC said once, that "Hip-Hop is all about perspectives, so if I bring my perspective which is hope in Jesus Christ, I get labeled a Christian artist?".. He believes that there is more to Music than just a systematic synthetic lyrical base, he believes you can speak about whatever you want in your songs, and still be a person of the culture. "Though I preach Jesus, I am still found and left underneath the Hip-Hop culture.." He finds himself to be an instrument in the hands of Christ to spread the truth of his word and give the Glory to for all of his work, because he died for us and because of who God is alone.
