In keeping with its five-fold ministry, the Philippine Bible Society supplements its work of translation and publishing of God’s Word by engaging the audience and users of the Bible. One of the ways it does so is through the Bible Relevance in Modern Times Seminars (BRIMS), a flagship program of PBS for nearly two decades.

It aims to impart PBS’ expertise and experience in Bible Translation, Biblical Studies and Linguistics, and other topics, essentially to make the Bible more understandable, and lead the participants to engage better with God’s Word. Topics include Bible interpretation, teaching Bible lessons to children, translation principles, Bible versions, textual criticism, and the like.

Target participants of seminars include pastors, priests, catechists, Sunday school teachers and other church workers, to improve their perspective and approach in ministry.


Starting out with Bible Translation (BT) seminars conducted first among PBS staff, the local Bible translation experts, or more familiarly called Translation Consultants, eventually extended the equipping to other individuals from different churches and organizations. These experts include Bishop Daniel Arichea, Dr. Anicia Del Corro, Rev. Noli Mendoza, and Rev. Carmel Cartera.
These seminars were later on dubbed under Bible Caravans, since the seminars reached not only Metro Manila but also the neighboring provinces in Luzon. In succeeding years, provinces in the Visayas and Mindanao areas would also be reached, as Bible distribution also extends its reach to more provinces, and PBS develops more auxiliary offices in cities like Cebu, Davao, and Pampanga.

In 2014, the seminars were renamed Bible Relevance in Modern Times Seminars, with the unchanging goal of equipping more people in studying and propagating God’s Word, the Bible.

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
