Thanks to people like you and other partners in the mission, Wycliffe Bible Translators USA helps communities around the world translate the Bible into their own languages. We’re also helping them engage God’s Word through literacy, trauma healing, music ministry, digital solutions and more.

The Wycliffe Discovery Center is an interactive experience for people of all ages. Whether you’re 5 or 75 years old, you’ll enjoy learning about people, languages and cultures all over the world. You’ll also come face to face with the staggering number of people who are still waiting for a single word of the Bible in their own language.

Hear amazing stories of how lives are being changed as God’s Word is made accessible to those who still need it, and find out how you can be a part of what God is doing all around the world through Bible translation.

Education Programs

Wycliffe offers education programs for students of all ages! Our programs run an average of two hours, and give students a hands-on learning experience they won't soon forget. 

A-Z Worldwide Adventure is for elementary-aged students and showcases different languages, cultures and people from across the globe. Students will learn about the world, God's love for all people and the need for everyone to have the Bible in their own language through crafts, games, stories and activities.

Mission Encounter: The Challenge is for students middle-school through college. Students will delve into missions and Bible translation during this hands-on adventure by completing challenges that cover topics such as geography, culture, language and more. Students will expand their understanding of what God is doing around the world and how he has uniquely created them to be a part of his global mission.
