Regional Ministry

Scripture Union's Regional Ministry carries out the vision and mission of Scripture Union through organizing programs and training volunteers in three major ministry areas: school year outreach to children through PrimeTime®, the faith-based after school program, SuperKids®, the summer outreach to children outside the orbit of the church, and through The Essential 100 Challenge, a new and creative way to engage entire church congregations in Bible reading.
