We use technology and education to give Unreached people access to the Bible.

I grew up reading the Bible in an arcane dialect and caring little about it, but my life changed when I read a translation that sounded like I talked—with no thees, thys or thou arts. My frustration was a shadow of the obstacles that keep billions from knowing the Scriptures.

Giving Partners

Paul’s partnership with the Philippians wasn’t only in prayer. He goes on, “You Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership (koinonia) with me in giving and receiving, except you” (Phil 4:15). Similarly, we invite you to partner with us financially to meet the budget Wycliffe’s established for us. Wycliffe is funded by people who believe in this vision to reach people with God’s word in their heart language. We cannot leave for Kenya until we have pledges for 100% of our recurring Wycliffe budget.
