The Gideons International consists of business and professional men that have one purpose: To see men, women, boys, and girls come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We work alongside our wives (the Gideon Auxiliary) to distribute Bibles in the pathways of life. We distribute God’s word locally to the Murray Calloway County First Responders, National Guard, all hotels/motels, MCCH, Nursing Homes, Physician/Dentist offices, Murray Calloway County Reality Store, and to the children represented at the First Loves Murray Back to School event – to mention a few. We give almost 4000 copies of God’s Word to college students and professors each fall on the MSU Campus. Last year the Gideons International reached a landmark by distributing their Two Billionth copy of God’s Word! We distribute God’s Word in 200 countries around the world in 100 languages. Last year the Gideon’s International distributed 94 million copies of God’s word. Every dollar donated goes to the purchase and distribution of Bibles and Testaments.
