A Fruitful Year

Last year Crossway launched the Global Ministry Fund as a place for you to give directly to support carefully chosen ministry projects aimed at equipping the church around the world for ministry. We partner with authors, translators, publishers, mission agencies, and theological training schools to provide books and Bibles to the least-resourced.

By God’s grace, your gifts to Crossway in 2021 have helped us to equip pastors and church leaders around the world with gospel-centered books and Bibles. Ministry funds are enabling the translation and publication of key Crossway titles in Nepali, Khmer, Zulu, Farsi, Serbo-Croatian, Vietnamese, Polish, and more.

How You Can Support the Global Church

As we look ahead to 2022, there are a number of exciting Global Ministry Fund projects underway:

  • Translating six Crossway books, including Gentle and Lowly, Women of the Word, and Family Discipleship, into Simplified Chinese for distribution in text and audio formats for free online through multiple digital ministry partners
  • Publishing and freely distributing the new ESV Concise Study Bible to help equip church leaders in Africa and Latin America
  • Translating twelve important resources into the Arabic language for digital, audio, and print distribution across the Middle East and North Africa
  • Funding the translation of key Crossway titles into strategic languages, including Japanese, Swahili, Mongolian, and others

This holiday season, we invite you to partner with Crossway to help provide thousands of pastors and church leaders around the world with Bibles and Bible-based resources. Our goal is to raise $400,000 by December 31, 2021. With the help of generous friends and ministry partners, we are pleased to report we are already halfway there—would you prayerfully consider helping us reach the final goal?

100% of your donation goes to the Global Ministry Fund and will equip church leaders with doctrinally sound resources through the translation and publication of books and the free distribution of the ESV Bible and books in print, digital, and audio formats.

Since its founding in 1938, Crossway’s mission has been to publish gospel-centered, Bible-centered content that honors our Savior and serves his church. By God’s grace—and with the help of your giving and prayer—together we can further that mission by equipping church leaders around the world to spread the gospel message to the ends of the earth, for his glory.


“One of the biggest struggles I have as a pastor is worrying that what I am teaching to my church is even correct. The greatest gift that I can receive as a pastor is a resource that can help me understand Scripture deeper and give me the confidence to know that what I am teaching is faithful to the Bible."
—Peterson, a pastor in rural Kenya who received an ESV Study Bible through Crossway's ministry distribution
