About CRI

Our Mission Cry at CRI—to share, send and sow—started over 60 years ago with a simple man with a simple but profound dream, and a heart to fulfill Matthew 28:19—to go and make disciples.  The Word of God does not return void, so what better way to train, lead, and equip than to send Bibles—the word of God!

Christians in other countries need access to Bibles but lack the money to get them.  In America, studies show that the average home has 7 extra Bibles sitting around the house.

From the beginning, one man’s dream of a few books going overseas has turned into a Worldwide Global Mission with companions like you who are strategically sharing, sending and sowing God’s Word to every nation.

Orphans, evangelists, pastors, and missionaries, and those yet to receive Christ are hearing your mission cry.

While you and I have already reached 170 nations and sent over $272 million in donated Christian books and Bibles, there is yet another simple but profound plan to reach even more.

Our strategy is to plant distribution centers globally.  Distribution centers are locations we have strategically set up around the globe that will allow people easy and free access to the word of God. These facilities are helping you and I make sure that we can get the word distributed quickly whether through our CRI Missionaries or those from other denominations. 

It started with the founder and is carried on by the Executive director, but accomplished only through you by your financial gifts, generous literature donations, dedicated will to continue God’s vision! Thank you for becoming a book missionary and aligning yourself with the mission to Share, Send, and Sow God’s Word!
