Andy Keener | Wycliffe Bible Translators

Andy Keener

Executive Vice President for 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 then served for eight years facilitating a Bible translation project among the Teribe people of Northwestern Panama.

Since their time in Panama, Andy has served in various leadership roles in both Wycliffe USA and SIL, a primary strategic partner, by providing leadership for Bible translation efforts in the Americas and among Deaf communities worldwide.

More recently, Andy has focused on helping Wycliffe connect more effectively with church and Bible translation agency leaders around the world. The goal is for Wycliffe to be strategically responsive to and collaborative with those ministering to communities so people can receive biblical resources in the languages that serve them best.

Andy and Lori have four children — Josh, Ben, Elli (married to Cole) and Rachel.
