Ministry Description
The Graduate Institute of Applied Linguistics (GIAL) is an institution of higher education providing training and research opportunities leading to one of four graduate degrees: Master of Arts degrees in Applied Linguistics, Language and Culture Studies, Abrahamic Studies, or World Arts. The institution also offers an undergraduate degree program, designed to offer a more general education, preparing students to serve internationally. GIAL is designed to be an integrated learning experience for committed students interested in the study of little known languages around the world, with the expectation that many graduates will engage in international service in cross-linguistic, cross-cultural situations. The program is in a totally modularized university course format and emphasizes preparation for professional service in such fields as linguistics, translation, literacy, teaching English to speakers of other languages and ethnomusicology.

GIAL is a Christ centered, student focused institution of higher education that educates missionaries to translate the Word of God into the heart language of people who do not have God's word in their first language. Our graduates serve in over 77 countries with 66 different sending agencies. Your support is urgently needed to help us educate missionaries to work in the remaining languages that still do not have one verse of Scripture in their own language.
GIAL educates missionaries to effectively translate the Word of God for people groups who do not have the Bible in their heart language. Our missionary students, who have limited financial means, need help with tuition costs through scholarships. You can help a student prepare to reach one of the Bibleless people groups in our world. $690 provides a half tuition scholarship for one student for one three hour course.
Most missions and missionaries are working with people from a variety of countries and cultures. Each one comes with their own system of leadership and decision making. The result is often frustration and deadlock. GIAL offers a graduate certificate in Multicultural Teamwork. Your help can assist mission leaders to gain the tools they need to effectively lead in multi-cultural environments.
God is calling Missionaries from all over the world to be involved in Bible Translation. These international missionaries need to be trained in the principles of Bible Translation, but need help to be able to afford the proper education. At GIAL we are committed to training men and women to effectively translate God's Word for the less than 2000 remaining people groups who do not have even one verse of Scripture in their language. You can help with scholarship funds for international students.
