Explore Bible Translation

Come spend five days with a team of seasoned missionaries who have invested their lives in the Bible translation movement! Hear what they have to say, and listen for the Lord’s direction:

  • What have they done?
  • How did they do it?
  • What is being done today?
  • Could you have a part to play in this mission?

Join us for Explore Bible Translation, where our staff will guide your exploration of God’s calling for you.

Be inspired by the wealth of testimonies and videos that bridge the gap between classroom preparation and the real-world mission of serving the Bibleless. You’ll also have many opportunities to pray, reflect and get to know staff and fellow students.

This event is not only for those who have a background in languages. Our teams consist of all sorts of personnel, including those with training in education, the arts, HR, management, counseling, computer science, administration, finance, engineering, marketing, editing and more. Each person's unique gifting has a role to play in this ministry.

What to Expect

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 needed to complete the work
  • Envision being used by God to impact Bibleless communities

… all while building relationships and making connections.

You can expect mornings and afternoons filled with interactive learning experiences on a variety of topics related to how God's Word is translated into different languages, and how people are transformed when they gain access to that Word.

In the evenings, field workers will share their experience of working on translation projects. It all adds up to a memorable week of learning, exploration and fellowship!
