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: The Rest Of The Math

During the International Scripture Blitz in Argentina, Maria, a student in Buenos Aires, received a New Testament early in the day. Later on, she returned to the group of Gideons that had given her the Scripture. One of the Gideons asked Maria where on a scale from 1 to 100 would she be in terms of going to heaven. Maria thought about it and said, “50 percent.” The Gideon then showed her the back of the New Testament and walked her through each verse. At the last verse, Maria said, “I guess that’s the rest of the math,” and gave her life to Christ.
