Board of Directors

The Board of Directors has voted to increase our annual dues to $100/yr. Starting April 1, 2017. (They have not been raised in 10 years.) The cost of printing Bibles and distributing them FREE to cops has increased. Thank you for continuing to help us get a Bible to EVERY COP in America!
