Andy Keener | Wycliffe Bible Translators

Andy Keener

Executive Vice President for Global Partnerships

Andy and his wife, Lori, joined Wycliffe in 1992 with a desire to serve a people group that needed God’s Word in their language. They first worked in language survey in the Caribbean and went on to serve for eight years facilitating a Bible translation project among the Teribe people of Northwestern Panama.

Following their time in Panama, Andy moved into administrative work, serving first as the Language Programs Director for SIL in the Americas and later creating SIL’s Global Sign Languages Team focusing on Bible translation needs of Deaf communities.

More recently, Andy helped develop and lead Wycliffe’s Global Partnerships team, which is an effort to create a multi-organizational platform that more deeply engages the global church in Bible translation.

Andy and Lori have four children — Josh, Ben, Elli and Rachel.
