The Wycliffe USA Board of Directors

To maintain accountability, Wycliffe USA elects a board of directors that consists of not only Wycliffe personnel, but also pastors, business people, educational leaders and others who have been involved in the work of Bible translation.

Those selected to serve on the board must demonstrate Christian character and enthusiastically support the work of Bible translation. Using their ability to think strategically and work creatively, the board sets the direction for Wycliffe USA. The president of Wycliffe USA, Bob Creson, working with the Senior Leadership Team, is responsible for meeting these goals.
