Founded in England in 1867, Scripture Union is presently working in over 130 countries. They are continuing to make God’s Good News known to children, young people, and families, helping them engage God through the Bible and prayer. Their vision is that, as people of all ages come to faith in Christ, they will be the means of transforming the communities in which they live. Consequently, Scripture Union emphasizes helping people grow in Christian maturity, encouraging believers to become committed church members and servants of a world in need. There are now many varieties of ministry around the world.
