The Gideons International is a non-denominational group of Christian men that focus on Bible distribution worldwide. Gideons are considered an outreach ministry and are currently in 197 countries of the world, distributing millions of Bibles annually.

The Oxnard camp has been busy distributing Bibles in both Spanish and American languages. In the last several weeks, over 3,000 Bibles have been distributed to local schools. The wives of Gideons are called the Gideon Auxiliary. They distribute Bibles to hospitals, prisons, senior citizen homes and women’s shelters. Combined with last year’s distribution, over 4,000 Bibles have been distributed in the Oxnard area.
