Global Ministry Initiatives

In addition to creating Bibles and gospel-centered books and tracts, Crossway—a not-for-profit ministry—is committed to distributing many of these resources for free to equip the global church for ministry.

Through Crossway’s ministry efforts over the last seven decades, countless Good News Tracts, Crossway books, and ESV Bibles have been distributed worldwide. Most recently, by God’s grace and with the help of generous supporters, we have:

  • offered the ESV Bible for free online and via mobile apps, with more than 5 billion chapters accessed by millions of users each year in nearly every country;
  • provided funding assistance to translate the ESV Study Bible notes into Mandarin Chinese, Hindi, Arabic, French, Tamil, Hungarian, and other major world languages;
  • supported the printing and distribution of over 250,000 Chinese-English Bibles in China;
  • produced 350,000 ESV Global Study Bibles for strategic distribution through ministry partners in Africa, India, and across Asia;
  • distributed hundreds of thousands of ESV Bibles and books to pastors, teachers, students, missionaries, and ministry leaders across the globe.

We are thankful to God for the prayers and generous support of many partners who join us in this special ministry. If you would like to help support Crossway’s global ministry initiatives, you can donate here.
