We’ve developed a gifted board, who dedicate their expertise, talents and passion for the Bible to accomplish the museum’s mission.
In the past year, there has been significant growth both in the size of our board and the number of projects we are undertaking.
As excitement builds around the 2017 opening of the museum, our board’s roles, responsibilities, and numbers are growing to reach new heights in quality and scope.
Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to each of our associates and to our very talented contractors.Meet our board »
“I’ve never been a part of something that I have felt any more passionate about. The impact of it I think is going to be way beyond what anybody sees right now.”
- Anne Beiler
Founder, Auntie Anne's Pretzels
“I’ve been on charitable boards before, but nothing that focused only on the Bible. Just wait until 2017, because what we see now is just a pale glimpse of what the reality is going to be.”
- James L. Moore, Jr.
Former President, Coca-Cola Bottling Company
It’s hard to believe that Museum of the Bible is only five years old. In these five years, we’ve developed four pillars: Research, Education, Traveling Exhibits, and our museum currently under construction in Washington, DC. Through these pillars, we’ve had the chance to bring traveling exhibits to five different countries where over half a million people have experienced the Bible’s story. We’ve learned from brilliant scholars and been inspired by enthusiastic scholars-in-training. We’ve also launched a Bible curriculum being tested in at least three different countries to date.
Museum of the Bible invites all people to engage with the Bible through our four pillars: research, traveling exhibits, education, and a museum currently under construction in Washington, DC.

PIONEERING BIBLICAL EDUCATION INITIATIVES
Museum of the Bible brings cutting-edge innovation to education by developing a high school Bible curriculum for markets around the world. The curriculum uses convergent media, known as Augmented Reality, to create an interactive learning experience -thrilling students and educators alike.
With teams in the U.S. and Israel leading the development, we have produced the first two core versions of the museum’s Bible curriculum.
1,400 students from 6 public schools and 10 schools for youth at risk participated in our pilot program in Israel last year. This year, we have expanded to include 6,000 students from 75 schools.
