OUR CALLING:

Provide Oral Learners with God’s Word in Audio in Their Home Language

The Bible has the power to revive and reshape the people of this world. The full Bible is powerful, redemptive, and introduces us to Jesus, who brings us new life and new fruit. It’s important to us that the Word of God be spoken accurately and without distraction, so the oral learner can listen, learn, and live.

We believe all people should have the opportunity to know the God who made them and that the truths of the Bible are not bound to the reader or ink on paper. By providing the recorded Word of God to oral learners in their home language, families, tribes, and nations will live transformed for His glory.

God’s Word does not return empty, but accomplishes His purpose (Isaiah 55:11).

MISSION

To create opportunities for oral learners to fully experience the Bible in their home language.

THE NEED:

Oral Learners Have Limited Access to God’s Word

One-third of the world population cannot read the language they speak.* The life-changing value of a written Bible is lost to them if not shared orally.

These people are a part of a larger population of oral learners who absorb knowledge through listening. Their home language has been passed down for generations through spoken word and may have few written materials in their oral language.

To fully experience God’s Word, and the life transformation that follows, they need to have access to the full Bible from Genesis to Revelation. The problem is that less than three percent of the 7,394** spoken languages have a full Bible in audio form.

OUR RESPONSE:

Record and Share God’s Word Around the World

We believe all people should have the opportunity to know the God who made them and that the truths of the Bible are not bound to ink on paper. By providing the recorded Word of God to oral learners in their home language, families, tribes, and nations will live transformed for His glory.

God’s Word does not return empty, but accomplishes his purpose (Isaiah 55:11). The full Bible is powerful, redemptive, and introduces us to Jesus, who brings us new life and new fruit.
