Dear friend of Bible Media

I write this letter to you as a follower of Jesus Christ and someone who loves telling others about Jesus.

In the 19 years that I have been with Bible Media, I have never been so aware of how dependent we are on our donors for their support than in 2020 with its many challenges. But, with your continuous help, we will be able to conquer the daunting challenges ahead of us.

Build with us

I want to tell you about a new project that will help us renew our focus on the support we give to congregations and individual believers on their journey of faith.

1 Peter 1:5 says, “You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” These words are just as true today as when Peter wrote them to the believers of his time. We should not only build real buildings with real bricks, but we should first build up the faith of followers of Jesus.

In these difficult times we want to do exactly this. I want to ask 12 000 Christians to each buy a BibleBuildingBlocks from Bible Media every month. That means I am asking our supporters to make a monthly contribution of R50 for this building blocks project and to join us in building a great future.

Where will your building blocks make a difference?

The symbolism of the building blocks is that want to build up and strengthen the faith of children, families, individual believers and faith leaders. The funds we receive will be used as follows:

  • Children’s ministry and products (catechism): R1 500 000
  • Training of unskilled church leaders (leadership development): R1 000 000
  • Biblecor resources and Bible studies for believers and congregations: R1 000 000
  • Online ministry and the spreading of the gospel: R2 500 000
  • Future funds (reserve funds for the future): R1 200 000

Our aim is to raise R7 200 000 with this project.

I want to ask you to kindly consider the following:

  • To make a contribution of R50 a month or R600 a year to Bible Media.
  • To help us engage 11 999 more supporters by sharing this project with your friends and family. The more people know of this project, the more support we will receive.

If you want to give a bigger donation towards the training of unskilled church leaders, we can supply you with an Article 18A tax certificate. Please send me an e-mail if you choose this option.

Why building blocks are more important than ever before

As media company it is our mission to develop and distribute resources for congregations, individuals, families and children to support them on their faith journey. We print enough books every year to fill Loftus Versfeld Stadium if you would put a book on every seat. The BibleBuildingBlocks initiative will enable us to keep on supplying these resources.

Through the work of Nehemiah Bible Institute we were able to provide theological training to 1 300 unskilled church leaders through distance education. In the past year our digitalisation project reached and served more than 500 000 people. This was possible due to almost 3 million visits to our websites and apps.

But then Covid-19 happened and brought disruption in the lives of people and the economy. As most other businesses in South Africa Bible Media experienced a drastic decline in our usual income.

The challenge ahead of us is plain to see. We should stay financially healthy despite the difficult times brought on by the epidemic. And we believe that we will be able to do this – one building block at a time.

If you have any ideas or questions, or if you want to help getting more supporters on board, please contact me.

It is always my pleasure to share this video of our well-known supporters of the BibleBuildingBlocks Project: link
