Ark Mission - English
Ark Mission: active in sharing the Bible
Ark Mission’s goal is to convey the message and the relevance of the Bible to people today. We do this by developing and subsidizing materials that meet the needs of specific groups of people, for a range of age groups, in the Netherlands and worldwide. In order to reach people, we specifically aim for a tone, presentation, product form and method that is both appealing and appropriate for them personally. For this, a thorough knowledge of their culture and society is essential.
Where it improves efficiency, we work together with other organizations, such as Open Doors, Bible League, Compassion, Mercy Ships, Youth for Christ

Donate for Bible-Fit
Ark Mission is completely dependent on financial support from donors, churches, congregations and organizations to develop and finance Bible projects. In 2014 we celebrated our 100th anniversary. Thanks to our donors, the foundation has sufficient means to keep meeting its goals in the future, too. All activities are financed from our own resources.
By having direct contact with the managers of the Bible projects in the Netherlands and worldwide, we monitor the responsible use of donations. Ark Mission has the ‘ANBI status’, which means that donations in the Netherlands are tax deductible.
