Needed Materials

You can donate bibles, of course, but that’s not all! One of the most common questions we hear is, “What kinds of materials do you send overseas?”

Items You Can Donate

If what you have falls under any of these categories, feel free to send it to us.

New or used, any translation, New Testaments or other portions, individual gospel booklets

Reference Material
Dictionaries, Bible dictionaries, concordances, commentaries, etc.

All Christian books – adult or children, non-fiction

Magazines and Daily Devotionals
Any devotionals or magazine from a Christian publisher

Sunday School Materials
Adult quarterlies and all teacher manuals in any amount from all publishers; children’s quarterlies with the teacher’s manual and full student manuals.

CDs, DVDs, BluRay
Music, movies, teaching from well known speakers (Billy Graham, Swindoll, etc.)

All tracts

Puppets, Nativity Sets, etc.
Bible games, biblical puzzles – anything that helps teach the gospel, especially to children

Still not sure? We essentially have two criteria for deciding what material we accept: Something that will lead someone to faith in Christ and/or something that will disciple a believer. If your material does one of those things, send it.

Items We Do Not Use

Save yourself some postage and do not send these types of items:

  • VHS/Tapes/Records/8-tracks
  • Guideposts
  • Handiwork or busy papers from Sunday School materials
  • Secular books (other than dictionaries)
  • Missions magazines


Where to Donate Materials

You can mail or drop-off materials at either of our locations—in Butler, Illinois, or Decatur, Alabama. You can also drop off materials at any of our partner collection points.

Please feel free to call us with any questions! (217) 532-6701
