Providing Resources for Christian Discipleship

Annual Bishop’s Appeal

Annual Bishop Appeal


May 2014


SPCK/USA continues to be faithful to its mission of spreading Christian knowledge. Here are three examples of small projects, the first of which we supported this past year. The second is a new request we are considering and the third is one in which we have been engaged since 2000.

History of SPCK


More than 300 years ago, the Reverend Thomas Bray, an Anglican priest in London, formed the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge (SPCK) to “promote learning in the plantations and abroad and to propagate Christian knowledge at home.”

Current Projects


The Adopt-A-Seminary Program was founded in 1985 to provide theological books and other print resources to schools, seminaries, and churches in less-affluent countries. To date, we have provided more than $5 million worth of materials to recipients in over 250 countries. We have sent shipments as large as 14,000 books to Venezuela and as small as a single Bible to a young student in Uganda.
