Join us in sharing the Good News

The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through sharing personally and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While we are known worldwide for our work with hotels, we predominantly share Scriptures in schools and colleges, prisons and jails, hospitals, and medical offices. To date, we have placed over 2 billion Scriptures. Follow us on that journey as The Gideons partner with churches anywhere, to reach the unreached everywhere. We appreciate your support.
