About Our Daily Bread Ministries
Throughout the history of Our Daily Bread Ministries, we’ve been teaching the Word of God so as to lead people of all nations to personal faith and maturity in Christ. As you’ll see in the pages of this Web site, Our Daily Bread Publishing has the same goal. We try to achieve our goal through every method and medium available.
As for who we’re trying to reach—our audiences are as diverse as our methods. They include pastors, counselors, laypersons, TV and radio stations, prisons, schools, businesses—any organization with resources that can touch families, friends, churches, and client networks.
The idea is that every person we reach has the potential to shine—to spread the gospel just as Jesus commanded.
Finally, I’d like you to know that ever since my grandfather founded this ministry a half-century ago, God has blessed us immeasurably with growth and an extended “family”—like Discovery House Publishers—who are committed to his foundational goals.
So in welcoming you, I also urge you to contact us. Inquire about our resources, ask questions, offer comments, whatever you desire. We’d love to hear from you. And thanks so much for your interest in Our Daily Bread Ministries.

The inspiring, life changing articles point the reader to God and the wisdom of His unchanging Word. Our vision is to see people of all nations experiencing a personal relationship with Christ, growing to be more like Him, and serving in a local body of His family.
All the Our Daily Bread Ministries Europe materials are offered without cost or obligation to ensure that no one is excluded. The founding principles of our ministry are that we control our spending based on the gifts we receive, and our experience has shown that individuals who support our efforts with their gifts help to cover the costs of those who don't. We are not funded or endowed by any group or denomination.
Within Europe we operate from offices in Minsk (Belarus), Dublin (Eire), Germany, Smolensk (Russia), Sandside (UK), and Kiev (Ukraine) distributing over 300,000 daily devotionals each quarter in a variety of languages to users stretching from Ireland across to Siberia.
