Koorong joins the Bible Society family
In July 2015, Bible Society Australia acquired leading Christian retailer Koorong in a deal that will aid Bible distribution across the country and support Bible Society’s core mission work around the world.
Koorong is a company that began over 40 years ago, and provides a wide range of Christian resources, at great prices, to help people in their walk with Jesus Christ. Koorong has a thriving online business and 15 stores across Australia. From the beginning, Koorong has remained committed to spreading God’s word and building up the body of Christ by providing an extensive range of Christian books, Bibles, music, DVDs, gifts and more.
In the second half of 2015, Koorong sold 158,728 Bibles and New Testaments, increasing the overall reach of Bible Society’s Bible distribution in 2015 to 316,183.
Since becoming a part of the Bible Society Australia family, Koorong's profits go to the support of Bible Society Australia as it undertakes Bible translation, Bible distribution and Bible engagement both here in Australia and around the world. Koorong customers are still able to get great Christian resources, but now their purchases and any voluntary extra donations will also help Bible mission too.
