A Toast To John Clinton

| February 14, 2013 | 0 Comments

John-ClintonJohn Clinton, Board member of 30+ years, recently retired and, with his wife Mary-Ann, moved to Nebraska.  Obviously John’s desire to partner with MBS and serve the community hasn’t left him.  This past Fall, only months after the move, John remembered others in need of Bibles by making a Bible donation to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in
Nebraska where Mrs. Clinton received excellent care and to  the Good News Jail & Prison Ministry here in Anne Arundel County, MD.

Pastor Chris Chantelau, President of the MBS Board of Directors commented: “John was committed to taking the Society and The Word to new places and new people; even the ballpark! Along with the handouts of towels, hats and bobble-heads was a hand out of the Bible and a sign reminding fans that the Maryland Bible Society not only existed, but cared about their encounter with God’s Word.”

About the Author ()

For over 200 years, the mission of the Maryland Bible Society (MBS) has been to see that every individual has an opportunity to own a Bible regardless of their native language or financial situation. Here in Maryland this mission has been mostly fulfilled. We now are turning our emphasis to encouraging and helping people read, understand and live out the truths and principles God has given us through His Holy Scriptures. As a non-denominational ministry, MBS is uniquely positioned to offer God’s Word without note or comment to Christians from all denominational backgrounds. This position allows us to work with all local Christian churches, serving and assisting them as they follow God’s lead. MBS has and will continue to establish and build partnerships that promote the distribution of the Bible, supply related sources and provide educational opportunities. Our vision is to ignite fresh passion for God’s Word to be lived out in the daily lives of people in Maryland and the world beyond. God’s Word contains truths that speak to all of the important areas of our lives: family, marriage, work, friendships, finances and parenting. It serves as the ‘road map’ for the often-overwhelming experience of life. It is a comfort, an encouragement, a teacher. It is convicting, edifying and inspiring. The Bible reveals our purpose in life. The Creator of the Universe has given us His Word to guide and direct us as we serve Him and live in the world.

As we embark on this renewed vision, our desire is to impact lives. As God leads us on this great adventure, we invite you to partner with us. Lives will be transformed as the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, resources and opportunities provided by MBS. Join us as we ignite fresh passion for God’s Word among individuals, ministries, local Churches, and businesses.
