The primary objective of Bikes and Bibles is to provide utilitarian bicycles and native-language bibles to pastors in Africa’s poorest areas.
This program began in Sierra Leone in March 2014 with the distribution of 40 bicycles and bibles, followed by a distribution of 200 bicycles and bibles in the Southern Congo. Now, about 1,000 bicycles, bibles and dozens of motorcycles have been distributed.
The objective is also to energize groups of pastors by a visible affirmation of the pastor’s important work. Providing these ministry tools expresses appreciation and support reinforcing the work of an entire group.
