Galen Johnson | Wycliffe Bible Translators
The Wycliffe Ministry of

Galen Johnson

Galen is the field coordinator to Central African Republic (CAR) and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) with SEED COMPANY. Prior to SEED COMPANY, he served in Zaire (now DRC), CAR and Burkina Faso mentoring leaders in education, ministry logistics and Muslim outreach (respectively).

His 30+ years of cultural experience and language skills help him mentor national leaders and structure translation projects that incorporate globally proven strategies with a local community's determination and resources. Seed Company values local partnership and only engages projects using "mother-tongue translators". Bible translation is accelerated towards transformational impact for “Bible-less” language communities through focusing on:
[1] local "end-users" scripture needs;
[2] sustainable project management; and
[3] leveraging appropriate technical tools.

To address the recent trauma in Central African Republic, Galen introduced “Story-Based Trauma Healing” training for local church leaders in 12 “heart” languages around Bangui. The impact of oral translation of scripture stories has led the national Bible translation organization to plan another training in Bozoum, and to use it as the "initial engagement" with churches towards addressing the Bible translation needs of the ±40 remaining languages.

Thank you for partnering with Galen to assist national churches and language communities in their initiative to translate God's word into their "heart" languages to advance the kingdom in DRC and CAR.

Wycliffe Ministry Budget

Wycliffe establishes a Ministry Budget for its missionaries to reflect recurring expenses related to family factors and their geographic location of service. Giving to Wycliffe directly impacts missionaries’ ability to begin and remain in their assignment.

This budget covers ministry-related expenses, insurance and retirement, social security and taxes, and Wycliffe administrative costs. The remainder is what the missionaries receive as “take-home pay” for their daily living expenses.
