Transform Philly

Philadelphia is home to a diverse community of thriving churches and ministries. Individual churches are changing the city for the better, and yet many Philadelphians remain isolated from God, other communities—even from themselves. Philly’s faith leaders need a unified vision to renew our city.

Over 60% of Philadelphians do not read the Bible. Philly needs the hope, unity, and belonging found in Scripture. Now, church leaders in Philadelphia are joining with the church engagement team at American Bible Society to engage Philadelphians with the life-changing power of God’s Word. Partner with us to bring the Bible’s transforming power to our city—and the nation.
