Wycliffe Bible Translators

Presbyterians have engaged in the work of Bible translation for generations. Helping people gain access to God’s word in the language they understand is essential to fulfilling the Great Commission – and the Great Commandment. Hundreds of Presbyterian congregations continue to help carry out that legacy today by supporting Wycliffe Bible Translators, the world’s largest ministry for Bible translation, with their prayers, time, and gifts.

Today about 350 million people do not have any Scripture in their language. Wycliffe’s vision is to see the Bible accessible to all people. In the process, Wycliffe also focuses on community development, literacy development, and church partnerships. Bible translation can provide individuals with both spiritual and physical freedom as God’s Word becomes flesh, speaks their language, and transforms their lives for the better.

Help Reach the Last Languages

The Presbyterian Foundation is partnering with Wycliffe Bible Translators in support of the Last Languages Initiative – connecting Presbyterian congregations and individuals with this critical ministry in an effort to see translation work begun in every language group that still needs it by 2025.

The majority of the remaining translation needs represent minority languages—relatively small people groups, many of which struggle to maintain their identity in the shadow of majority culture. Most of these languages are located in three regions of the world—Central Africa and Nigeria, Mainland and Southeast Asia, and Indonesia and the Pacific Islands.
