The Wycliffe Ministry of

Scott Rayl

Scott is preparing to serve as an Arts Specialist with Wycliffe Bible Translators in West Africa, with a special emphasis on visual arts. He recently completed training in World Arts and linguistics in Dallas, TX.

Oral communities all over the world communicate not only through spoken languages, but also through their community’s artistic languages.  God desires to give them His Word in response to their problems, to bring truth, healing, and restoration.  Cherished community art forms can help "bridge the gap" between the text of the Bible and those who desperately need it, enabling it to take root and grow strong in their lives. Scott's training in World Arts will enable him to help people deeply engage with God's Word through art forms that make sense to them and already have a place in their hearts.

To do this, Scott will work alongside local artists and fellow arts specialists to be catalysts for bringing God’s Kingdom to bear in the lives of local communities, so that they may become fully alive in Christ. Scott will do this by forming relationships with local artists and church leaders while researching their community's art forms. The goal of his research will be to help them spark new artistic creations that embody and communicate God's message in powerful new ways.

Scott is currently making final preparations to leave for West Africa in 2018.

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.
