Customer Service

The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to winning the lost for Christ. You may have seen our Bibles in a hotel nightstand or doctor’s office. Did you know…each Bible placed in a hotel room has the potential to reach up to 2,300 people in its estimated six-year life span?
