[Spokane, Wash.] NOVEMBER 5, 2009
Bibleinfo.com, the Adventist scripture resource ministry, announced today it will partner with Discover Bible Schools, a ministry of The Voice of Prophecy and the Seventh-day Adventist Church in North America to expand its global outreach. This announcement marks a move for the online ministry from the Adventist's regional offices in Spokane to the North American headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Kurt Johnson, Discover Bible Schools’ director and the new director for Bibleinfo.com, says, “Bibleinfo.com and Discover Bible Schools introduce people to Scripture as the answer to life’s questions. Each ministry has a unique approach, and when combined together, create a powerful avenue for sharing one’s faith. I am grateful and excited for this team approach to ministry.”
Bibleinfo.com, with more than 2.6 million pages viewed last year, receives more Internet traffic than any other website owned and operated by the Adventist Church. The success of Bibleinfo.com stems from its interactive nature. Visitors are encouraged to ask Bible questions or submit prayer requests. Each receives a personal response from one of more than 150 qualified volunteers serving around the world. The ministry responded to more than 37,000 such requests in 2008.
BibleInfo.com began in Spokane, Wash. in 1995 as a telephone Bible resource and expanded to include the Internet in 1996. Since its simple beginnings, BibleInfo.com has grown to offer Bible answers on more than 350 topics in 21 languages as well as offering a web outreach for children, kidsbibleinfo.com.
