Our Mission

Overview of Bill Rudge Ministries

  • This multi-faceted ministry touches the lives of thousands of youth and adults in our area, throughout the U.S. and around the world through speaking engagements, missionary outreaches, Holy Land Adventures, radio broadcasts and interviews, books, e-books, pamphlets, tracts, audio and video messages, newsletters, web site, blogs, tweets, podcasts, military and prison ministry, school assemblies, total health and fitness, self-defense, obstacle course, soccer and sports ministry, research and apologetics, leadership training, chaplain ministry and crisis intervention, witness encounters and street ministry, prayer and correspondence ministry, and in many other ways.

  • BRM started in 1977 in the upstairs apartment of Bill’s parents’ house on West State Street in Sharon, Pennsylvania. Since its beginning, BRM has been based on the principles in God’s Word and the leading of His Spirit.

  • Bill and BJ Rudge have spoken more than 3,000 times at schools, colleges, seminaries, military bases, prisons, churches, chapels, rallies, retreats, banquets, and leadership conferences throughout the United States and in over 25 countries. Their powerful messages have challenged, inspired, and impacted countless lives.

  • Bill has led dozens of mission trips into remote and often extremely dangerous areas to minister at conventions, churches, schools, leper colonies, hospitals, and villages.

  • Living Truth for Today with Bill Rudge (our weekly quarter-hour broadcast) and A Minute of Living Truth, have aired on AM, FM, shortwave, and Internet radio stations across the U.S. and around the world. Bill and BJ have also been guests on many radio and television programs in the U.S. and abroad. Bill’s dramatized testimony was featured worldwide on Unshackled on over 1,200 radio stations.

  • Bill and BJ have authored many books, e-books, booklets, pamphlets, and tracts and produced audio and video messages on a variety of topics. Over 1.5 million of these biblical resources have been provided free of charge to missionaries, pastors, chaplains, military personnel, prisoners, students, and searching people in every state in the U.S. and over 140 countries. An ever growing number of lending libraries – often on mission fields, behind prison walls, on military bases, and in churches, ministries, orphanages, schools, and colleges – offer our biblical resources.

  • Many of Bill and BJ’s articles and ministry ideas, as well as quotes and excerpts from their books and messages, have been published in various magazines, journals, newsletters, books, and posted on web sites and blogs. Several of their books have been translated and reprinted by publishers and ministries in Nigeria, Pakistan, India, Myanmar, Egypt, and other nations.

  • More than 30 staff and volunteers currently serve in various aspects of this ministry at our Hermitage, Pennsylvania headquarters or from their own offices scattered throughout the country. Hundreds of volunteers and staff over the years have been trained at or by BRM. Many are now pastors, chaplains, youth ministers, missionaries, have started their own ministries, or serve in leadership positions in various churches and ministries (2 Timothy 2:2).

  • In addition to national and global outreaches, Bill Rudge Ministries has many opportunities to touch the lives of area youth and adults. Students’ lives are impacted as they see our Motivational Assemblies, attend the Self Defense and Street Survival Strategies classes and/or go through our Ultimate Challenge Obstacle Course. Some are able to hear Bill and BJ speak at their church or other event, or attend BJ’s soccer camp. We are one of very few ministries that has access to the schools and the opportunity to work with and train military. 

  • Many individuals, businesses and churches have been a crucial part in God’s blessing on, and expansion of, this multi-faceted ministry. We freely offer our services and resources. Our promise is to use all funds wisely and maximize resources to reach this world for Christ. We thank the LORD for donors with vision and a missionary heart. May God bless you for your ongoing prayer and financial support of Bill Rudge Ministries which enables us to continue touching lives in this area, across the nation and around the world (Acts 1:8), as well as challenging believers to reach their maximum potential (Philippians 1:6). One day, together, we will receive our eternal reward for faithfulness to Him. Then we can rejoice in His presence with all those whom we have reached with the Gospel.  Bill and Karen Rudge
