Mission:

World Missionary Press, Inc. was founded in 1961 by Watson and Rose Goodman, who had been missionaries in South Africa for almost 16 years. There they discovered widespread hunger for God's Word in the languages of the people. When they returned to the U.S., their goal was to supply 48-page topical Scripture booklets, beginning with "Help From Above," in 300 languages free of charge to nationals and missionaries throughout the world. The goal of 300 languages was reached in January, 2000, with Hmong Daw. WMP now produces about 4.5 million Scripture booklets and Bible studies per month. About twenty titles are available in various languages.

Reviews for World Missionary Press Inc

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 1 stars  

This organization sends millions of religious booklets out every year, on the premiss that they are saving souls (apparently their god leaves it up to the random chance whether poeple get saved or not). The booklets indicate that homosexuality is akin to murder and invokes eternal punishment in fire, including tasteless pictures of people burning in flames.
Thier literature meets the definition of HATE SPEECH in many jurisdictions because it incites hatred against a segment of the population based on their sexual orientation.
This business should not be subsidized by tax exemptions and preferential treatment as a "charity".
They should be shut dwn.

It's not correct that the Board of Directors are not named on the website. Go to the home page, click on NEWS, and drag down to Annual Report. The Board is listed right there on the PDF of the Annual Report.

Also, it is fairly easy to view the Form 990 from the website. Just input "Form 990" into the Search field on the home page and the pdf will immediately load.
