Phoenix is a Bible desert. Yes, we are home to some of the largest churches in the U.S., but the real story is that about 70 percent of people in Phoenix do not go to church on a weekly basis. Millions of people in our city need God’s Word.
But we have streams of life coursing through our Scripture wasteland! We have a significant network of churches and ministries working together to serve our city. Serving alongside Phoenix’s faith leaders, American Bible Society’s church engagement team is investing resources to promote Bible engagement in Phoenix’s metro area.
Pray for us! Serve with us! Tell us how we can partner with your church, ministry, or movement to increase the number of people in your circles who are experiencing the life-changing message of God’s Word.
