Help people of know and love the Lord

Beautiful moments of connection in Christ take place every day, between people of all ages. Which is exactly how it should be – because His word is for every person, in every generation. 

But we need it to happen much, much more. In every home, between colleagues and friends, and during casual conversations between strangers. Together we can share the message of God’s love - and enable others to share that message too. 

Share God's word across the generations and around the globe
