History

Started by Nick Hengeveld in 1993[3] at Calvin College, Bible Gateway was initially planned as a static HTML presentation of the Bible.[4] In 1995, the site moved to the new Gospel Communications Network (a part of Gospel Communications International). The Bible Gateway website was originally written as a CGI script in Perl. Later versions were written in C++, PHP and Ruby.

Bible Gateway gradually expanded its database by acquiring the rights to more English and foreign language translations, including translations published by International Bible Society, The Lockman Foundation and Wycliffe Global Alliance.

In late 2008, Zondervan (the Evangelical Christian publisher of the NIV and TNIV Bible and a wholly owned subsidiary of HarperCollins) acquired Bible Gateway from Gospel Communications.[5] The sale of the site came after two years of continued financial difficulties on the part of the donation-driven GospelCom ministry.[6]

In June 2009, Joseph Park was hired as president of BibleGateway.com.[7] Park was co-founder and former CEO of Kozmo.com,[8] which was the subject of the documentary film e-Dreams. He was also co-founder and former CEO of Askville, owned by Amazon.com and closed in 2013.

In May 2010, Rachel Barach replaced Park (who became Senior Vice President of Consumer Products at parent company HarperCollins Digital, Consumer) as General Manager of Bible Gateway.[9]
