RBC Ministries, publishers of the well-loved devotional booklet Our Daily Bread, has changed its name to Our Daily Bread Ministries as part of its effort to connect with people more easily and to use the strength of the Our Daily Bread name to introduce more of its resources.
The ministry started in 1938 with a radio program called Detroit Bible Class. Since then, its audience has grown from a small group of dedicated radio listeners to millions of people around the world who use its Bible-based resources.
Over the years, the ministry has changed its name from Detroit Bible Class to Radio Bible Class to RBC Ministries to better reflect the range of what it does and the variety of resources it offers. More recently, however, the ministry realized that many people do not know what RBC Ministries is or what it represents. Many do, however, recognize the devotional Our Daily Bread.
“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,” shared the ministry’s President, Rick DeHaan, whose grandfather started the ministry nearly eight decades ago.
“Whether it’s through a radio or television broadcast, DVD, podcast, book, website, social media, or mobile app, nothing matters more to us than helping people grow in their relationship with God and in understanding His Word,” he added.
With more than 600 employees and 1,000 volunteers from 37 offices, Our Daily Bread Ministries has created more than 60 million resources to help people in need in more than 150 countries.
The ministry’s mission is to make the life-changing wisdom of the Bible understandable and accessible to all.
