World Assembly: Bible Societies Plan for a Future of Bible Ministry

Bible Societies from around the world are preparing for the 2016 World Assembly in Philadelphia.

Representatives from Bible Societies around the world will gather in Philadelphia this May for the United Bible Societies (UBS) World Assembly. The event, which coincides with American Bible Society’s Bicentennial Celebration, will bring together Bible Society leaders to celebrate God’s faithfulness in the past and plan for a future of Bible ministry. UBS, which is comprised of 147 Bible Societies, serves more than 200 countries around the globe.

“The 2016 World Assembly is taking place at a very special time,” says American Bible Society President and CEO Roy Peterson. “May 2016 marks the 200th anniversary of American Bible Society and the 70th anniversary of United Bible Societies. In 1946, Bible Society leaders from 13 countries, including the United States, agreed to work together more closely, giving birth to this very strategic Fellowship we enjoy today.”

Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
