We are passionate about connecting Canadians with Jesus and His Story

connecting canadians with jesus and his story

Scripture Union began +150 years ago when our founder, Josiah Spiers, started telling children about Jesus. A passion for evangelizing and discipling children through innovative ministries continues today with sports camps, sports clubs and children’s ministry training.

Bible engagement advocacy and resourcing are prioritized because we recognize that teaching Christians to read, reflect and respond to God’s Word is essential for their journey’s of faith. We publish Bible reading guides for all ages and ministry resources that help churches connect children, youth and families with Jesus and His Story.

Serving in and through the local church, we’re working towards a future where Bible reading and reflection are a valued part of every believer’s life. We imagine a future world where the inclusivity of God’s message is heard and actively invites people in, and where the Word is accessible and available in the most engaging, interactive and multi-media formats. We hope to see the tide in declining Bible reading/listening reversed and to see faith in Jesus and Bible engagement grow in Canada, and beyond.
