Bible translation requires the equipping of Christians around the world in linguistics and translation techniques and providing linguistics consultant help for translation projects. Ervin and Coleen use their expertise to train people to become Bible translators and linguists and provide leadership and consultancy for those doing linguistics in Nigeria. Ervin is assigned as full-time faculty at Dallas International University (formerly GIAL) in Dallas, TX to teach Greek exegesis and the discourse structure of New Testament Greek for translators, as well as the discourse structure of other languages. Coleen is assigned remotely to Nigeria as a Linguistics Consultant. She also has an appointment as adjunct faculty at Dallas Int'l. Please consider partnering with them in their Wycliffe ministry financially and in prayer. Feel free to contact them personally!

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 this account 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.
