About Us

We ignite and fuel a passion in people's hearts to share the gospel — training and equipping them, as a community of believers, to effectively introduce people to Jesus through God's Word.

Gideons International in Canada member sharing scripture and God's word with people around the world.


If you’ve heard of our organization, you’ve probably heard something like this: “The Gideons—they’re the people who put Bibles in hotel rooms.” That’s absolutely right. But while you’re here, we hope to broaden your understanding of this global ministry.

The Gideons International In Canada was founded in 1911. We’ve grown to include our international arm, ShareWord Global, because we want to share God’s Word everywhere.


In our own nation, we do that through our volunteer membership, church partners, and SendMe youth and young adults. And the local church is important to us. We’re strategic to partner with like-minded ministries, in Canada and all our key regions around the globe.

There’s an opportunity for everyone to be involved. We’re training, equipping, and mobilizing believers—gathering people together who share a passion to get God’s Word out, to change lives through the message of Jesus Christ.
