More than Missionaries

The Gideons International is an interdenominational association of Christian business and professional men who are members of Protestant/evangelical churches. Our members are dedicated to saving the lost through personal witnessing and the distribution of God's Word in more than 190 countries around the world.

The majority of Gideons live and serve in their local communities, making us very effective and efficient because . . .

  • They know the local language and customs.
  • They know where the hotels, schools, prisons, hospitals and other locations where Bibles and New Testaments need to be distributed are located.
  • Sometimes, we're able to establish local groups of Gideons in countries where traditional missionaries aren't allowed to go.

Testimony: A Misplaced New Testament

At a university distribution in Bogota, Colombia, a woman named Sandy shared her story. She had received a New Testament when she was eight years old. She came to know Christ soon after with the help of a friend’s witness. Sandy said the New Testament remained at her parents’ home after she moved out. Around twenty years passed from the time she received the New Testament and the moment when her father saw it and began reading its pages. With deep emotion in her words, and eyes filled with tears, Sandy thanked the Gideons for giving out God’s Word. Sandy’s father came to faith in Christ as a result of her “misplaced” New Testament.
