Ministry Initiatives

In addition to creating Bibles and other gospel-centered resources, Crossway—a not-for-profit ministry—is committed to distributing free resources that equip the global church for ministry and providing God’s Word to people around the world.

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 tens of millions of users from nearly every country;
  • Supported the printing and distribution of over 250,000 Chinese-English Bibles in China;
  • Provided funding to translate the ESV Study Bible notes into Mandarin Chinese;
  • Produced a quarter of a million Global Study Bibles for strategic distribution through ministry partners in Africa, India, and across Asia;
  • Enabled the translation of the ESV Study Bible notes and many Crossway books into more than 50 languages; and
  • Provided 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.
