Gideons Legacy Program

Extending the work and identity of The Gideons International in Canada 
as a legacy ministry of ShareWord Global


In recognition for the 110 years of ministry under the Gideon name, ShareWord Global is committed to maintaining a Gideon presence in Canada. The Gideon name and logo continues to be used in prominent ways, and chapters continue to meet and engage in evangelism and Scripture sharing activities—in their communities and alongside churches.

Our Gideon identity continues to be represented through the Gideons Legacy program:

  • Our primary institutional Scriptures feature the Gideons logo on their covers: Bibles for hotels, Bibles and New Testaments for prison ministries, and large print New Testaments for retirement homes
  • Gideons Legacy cards are available for "in memory" gifts
  • Our Charitable Trust continues under the Gideons name

We’re grateful for the thousands of lives touched by the gospel through our Gideon members since 1911 and anticipate many more in the coming years under the Gideon Legacy program.
