Explore Bible Translation Extreme - North Carolina

Come to Explore Bible Translation Extreme (formerly known as 'TOTAL It Up Extreme!") and spend five days with a team of seasoned missionaries who have invested their lives in the Bible translation movement!

Throughout the week you’ll …

  • Discover how Bible translation brings hope.
  • Gain exposure to Wycliffe's culture, history and vision for reaching the Bibleless.
  • Explore the process of Bible translation and the roles the needed to complete the work.
  • Envision being used by God to impact Bibleless communities.

Details about this location

This particular course is extreme because you’ll be doing everything in the outdoors! You’ll live in a simulated village experience, sleep in a champa (a hut built 5 feet above the ground), sleep in a hammock, eat outdoors and attend the different sessions in a pavilion.

This outdoor-based experience will make this an exciting week you’ll never forget!
