Scriptures In Use Founders: Carla and Jim Bowman
Jim and Carla Bowman chartered Scriptures In Use as a non-profit in October of 1986, after three years of short term mission trips to Mexico. Once they had raised enough support, they officially started Bridges training in July of 1987. Working out of their home, they recruited others to join their storytelling movement. Over the past 30 years, SIU has become a leader in communicating the Bible orally thru storytelling, headquartered in Green Valley, Arizona. The Bowmans developed five separate curricula and tens of thousands have come to know Christ as a result. Jim and Carla Bowman are currently enjoying retirement and continue to serve the Lord in many ways.
