Our daily bread started with a radio program called Detroit Bible Class. Since then, our audience has grown from a small group of dedicated radio listeners to millions of people around the world who use our Bible-based resources. Over the years our name has changed to better reflect the variety of resources we offer. Today, we realize that most people recognize who we are by the well-loved devotional Our Daily Bread. So we changed our name to Our Daily Bread Ministries to more clearly communicate who we are.
Although our name has changed, our focus remains the same: reaching out to people all around the world with the message of God’s love.
It Is a non-denominational, non-profit organization with staff and volunteers in over 37 offices working together to distribute more than 60 million resources in 150 countries. Regardless of whether it’s a radio or television broadcast, DVD, podcast, book, mobile app, or website, we provide materials to help people grow in their relationship with God.
Our Daily Bread Ministries Nigeria was officially registered in 1999 with only 2 part-time staff.
