Bike for Bibles (B4B) is an annual Canadian Bible Society event that brings cycling enthusiasts of all ages and walks of life together for a time of fellowship on the road - with one purpose in mind - to help raise funds for Bible distribution and translation projects.
In 2016, CBS will be celebrating its 110th Anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, Bike for Bibles will be raising funds for CBS’ various Bible distribution and engagement programs.
CBS partners with over 100 local ministries to distribute God’s Word to people in Canada in their own language. Through these partnerships, CBS is reaching out to the following target groups:
- Indigenous People. CBS is actively involved in translation projects which aim to make the Bible available in First Nations languages.
- Next Generation. CBS provides Bibles for children and teens in summer camps. The Bible is also made available to university students across Canada.
- New Immigrants. CBS continues to make the Bible available to newcomers in Canada by providing Bibles for churches/organizations reaching out to new immigrants, refugees and international students.
- Urban and Chaplaincy. Through partnerships with urban ministries, CBS is able to reach out to unchurched people in Canada. CBS also connects with Canadian soldiers and prisoners through chaplains who work with these groups.
CBS also makes God’s Word available to the visually impaired by distributing the Bible in Braille and audio format.
