EEM publishes, prints, and distributes Bibles and Bible-based materials in 30+ countries and 20+ languages through a vast network of partner churches and organizations.

In addition to delivering on its promise of providing free Bibles and Bible-based materials in native languages, even to the most unreachable places in Eastern Europe and beyond, EEM publishes and prints these materials locally to help support the region's economies. Before materials are sent to print, EEM's highly qualified publishing team works hard to ensure the excellent quality of each book. Every year, the ministry coordinates the production of over 100 printing projects. These Bibles and Bible-based materials are then printed by trustworthy, locally-based printers, allowing for better cost and logistical efficiency.

The mission of EEM began in 1961 when a small band of missionaries bravely answered God's call to take his Word to people under the rule of the Soviet Union. Smuggling Bibles and underground printing were the only ways to share God's Word until the wall fell in 1989. Today, we freely supply Bibles and Bible-based materials. These materials are given to individuals, families, children in youth camps, refugees, mission churches, public universities, public schools, public libraries, prisons, hospitals, orphanages, campaign groups, and anywhere else Bibles are needed.
