Edwin Hodges Ministries
Since 1994 the mission of EHM has been reclaiming God’s resources for His purposes. We have done this by asking people to share their bookshelves that are filled with Bibles and God’s teaching tools. Once we have received those materials, EHM sends them around the world, therefore sowing God’s word into the lives of those who cannot afford it. EHM is equipping orphans, evangelists, pastors and missionaries for the works of service all the while setting up distribution centers, lending libraries, bible college libraries, and holding crusades. When you give financially, donate bibles; commentaries; and Christian books, you are becoming a book missionary and aligning yourself with the mission to Share, Send, and Sow God’s Word!
We have several opportunities to volunteer with EHM. Join us in sorting through books and educational materials.
