1. Bibles for Christians who have none: Bible Distribution
This circle represents Bible distribution. We do “distribution” when we print, ship and hand out scriptures to Christians that have no Bibles. Handing out Bibles in a school, after Baptisms, during a crusade, or shipping a supply of Bibles to a partner ministry or church... these are examples of a distribution strategy.
We tend to call “distribution” the “Old National Christian Churches Network Cambodia Council” because in the past a major part of our strategy involved providing grants of scriptures to churches and ministries. Bible sales, especially at subsidized prices are also a distribution strategy.
Distribution agencies usually measure their work by counting the numbers of scriptures given out or the income received from sales of literature. In 1995, National Christian Churches Network Cambodia Council made a significant shift by focusing not only on the number of Bibles printed, but also on what these Bibles accomplish for the Kingdom of God. How can we provide Bibles and training in way that produces lasting results?
Distribution is important. It is vitally important that Christians have and read the Word of God. We want to get Bibles to people who need them. So in some of our ministries we still use “distribution language.”
