Bible Society Australia (BSA) seeks to serve and equip chaplains who are working with the Australian Defence Forces, ministering to Australians serving with the armed forces, by providing Bibles and Scripture Resources through a Scripture Grant.
There is sustained demand for specialty Scriptures in the ADF, as men and women take up the opportunity to search the truths of the Bible, encouraged by their “padres”. Bible Society has provided specialised ADF badged Bibles for members of the armed forces for over 100 years.
- Bible Society has provided special ADF Bibles for over 100 years
- 581,100 people have served in the ADF / 2.8% of the Australian population aged 15 years and over (as per 2021 census)
- In 2021 60,300 people were currently serving in Regular service
