Ministry Description
Distant Shores' objective is to make Biblical content available in every language, without restrictions, for free. Four thousand of the world's seven thousand languages have no scripture available and it's virtually impossible to reach all of them using traditional methods. Distant Shores makes open-licensed Biblical content available to the global church through its technology platform. This enables local believers from anywhere in the world to provide their local church with the Biblical content they crave for spiritual growth. With independent ability to maintain their own scripture, local churches are better equipped to fulfill their own role in Jesus' global church.

Open Bible Stories is our first step in making unrestricted Biblical content available for free to the church. Comprising 50 carefully chosen stories from Creation to Revelation, it is an excellent mini-Bible for churches where Biblical content is scarce. Can be translated in six weeks or less. Open licensed so any Christian may translate it into his own mother tongue without jumping through permission hoops or waiting for another organization to do it for him.
