We would love you to join us for all or any of the celebration events.

The proceeds from the Run/Walk for Hope will go towards our special bicentennial project, 2 Million Bibles for South and Southern Africa:


Should God lay it on your heart (for you or your congregation) to make a Birthday Gift to the Bible Society in thanksgiving to God for the availability of the Bible in all of our languages, affordable to all and in all needed formats, please do so via This too will ensure that more people who need God’s Word will receive Bibles in their own heart languages.

In fellowship of the Word
