About the Ministry

A little over twenty years ago, Ray Ridings began placing Bibles in the glove boxes of the cars he sold. Ray, an automobile dealer, was appraising a vehicle when he noticed a Bible laying in the front seat. He told the lady who owned the car, “I like your owner’s manual.” The ministry was born. Ray began placing New Testament Bibles in the glove compartments of all the cars he sold.

Now many automobile dealers over several states have embraced the ministry as well. This is making a difference in many people’s lives. We are currently initiating a nation wide move to place a New Testament in every automobile sold in America each year.
