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: Hope Found in a Hospital

Sergey Komar spent his childhood in an orphanage. Other children in the orphanage mocked and offended Sergey, so he tried to escape several times. With each attempt, Sergey was found and brought back to the orphanage. Eventually, Sergey became ill with symptoms of tuberculosis and was admitted to a hospital. While lying in bed with a serious health condition and a hopeless feeling in his heart, Sergey found a New Testament in his bedside table. As he spent time reading about Christ, Sergey repented and gave his heart to Jesus. The Lord healed the young man and gave him life instead of death. Today, Sergey is a member of the Gideon camp in the Rovenky, Luhansk, region of Ukraine. He is working with other local Gideons to visit tuberculosis hospitals on a regular basis. Hundreds of Scriptures just like the one Sergey read during his darkest days have been placed in these hospitals.
