Encouraging Those Who Serve

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.
– 1 Thessalonians 5:11

Just walking and listening to the Bible helps me smile. – Petty Officer First Class, Navy

Encouragement – what a great way to bring a smile to someone’s face! Since September 2001, many of our men and women in uniform have served multiple deployments in the most harrowing regions: Iraq, Afghanistan, and beyond. They’ve seen the horror of modern war and stood strong for their families and our freedoms.

Because of this, they need to know that their service is appreciated and honored and means something. The month of September is an opportunity for you to be a hero to our heroes by encouraging them with Military BibleSticks.

We work with over 1,500 chaplains from every branch of the military who provide BibleSticks to those under their care. They tell us this is the most effective tool they have ever had.

As our military deals with the stress of serving in dangerous situations and the increasing concerns of depression and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, the need is more urgent than ever. Military BibleSticks give servicemen and women the opportunity to renew their minds and restore their relationships, meeting their deepest inner needs.

To date, your support has provided BibleSticks for more than 550,000 service members who tell us:

I had wanted to read the Bible for a very long time, but was always too busy. This made it easy! Thanks so much. – Petty Officer Second Class, Navy

It has been very helpful and relieving to me. I think everyone should have one. Thank you very much. – Corporal, Army

The Military BibleStick is very encouraging. It is such a comfort and a great blessing! – Sergeant, Army

Your church can be a part of this life-transforming outreach. $25 provides a Military BibleStick kit, which also includes a card to request free MP3 Bibles for spouses and children to bless an entire family. A gift of $250 will provide BibleSticks for 10 service members and $2,500 will fund an entire company (100 troops). Visit MilitaryBibleStick.com or call us at (800) 545-6552 to learn more.


We are thankful for churches like Gilmer Church of the Nazarene (Gilmer, TX), Flippin Christian Church (Flippin, AR), Seldovia Bible Chapel (Seldovia, AK), Faith Church (Fairmount, IL), Tammany View Baptist Church (Lewiston, ID), and more than 8,000 congregations who have participated in this program so far, encouraging those who are serving their nation.
