Our Vision

If God is limitless, shouldn’t His Word be also?

At International Scripture Ministries, we believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and every person should have a direct path to know Christ. This vision motivates us to deliver unhindered access to the Bible and its teachings.

By harnessing technology, leveraging platforms, and establishing partnerships, we provide free access to software and resources that preach, teach, and reach every person, in their language, across the world.

Our Staff


Troy Carl, the founder and President of ISM, brings 35+ years of experience as a visionary leader, technology executive, and pastor. He has a proven track record of leveraging cutting-edge technologies and building lasting partnerships to accelerate and enable ministry efforts to achieve the Great Commission. In 2010 Troy helped build the world’s largest digital Bible platform in over 1800 languages that touches over 600 Million users in 240 countries.

In 2008, he developed a unique device for the US military that’s been distributed to over 1 million service members, through chaplains in every branch of the service, bringing peace and comfort through the hearing of Scripture. He was also honored to help create the number one “Deaf” app in iTunes and Google Play along with the second most downloaded Bible app in the world called Bible.is.

Through these initiatives, he’s acquired a vast and unique knowledge of International ministry opportunities. Several of which have been featured on FOX News, CNN, CBN, DayStar and major radio networks in the US and abroad. As the former president of a telecommunications company, the vice president and director of a publicly traded NASDAQ company, his experience with for-profit and non-profit organizations is unique and sets him apart from other well qualified ministry leaders to head-up ISM in its mission.
