The Mailbox Club facilitates the translation, production and distribution of Mailbox Club Bible lessons around the world for people of all ages, with particular emphasis on children and young people. We reach many more children effectively by teaming up with strategic partners, which includes the local church. We support our ministry partners by adequately training them and sharing the best practices we have learned from nearly 50 years of follow-up ministry.
We publish our own lessons in the different countries we work in. The printing is funded by generous donors accross the world who, like we, have a heart to reach the children of the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Each course is designed to evangelise, follow up and disciple the children effectively. In 2017 we printed 11,024,507 lessons in Africa and worldwide 33,485,112 lessons.
Our material is translated into the 11 most spoken languages in Africa.
We print and distribute our material in collaboration with our partners in the different countries we work in.
Partnering with key ministries play a vital role in the success of the ministry. Our partners include Evangelism Explosion, Child Evangelism Fellowship, Jesus Film Project and Source of Light Ministries, as well as churches and school.
We are currently working in 32 Sub-Sahara African Countries. The countries are divided into different areas and each area is overseen by an Area Coordinator.
