Ministry Description
Talking Bibles is dedicated to serving the "Great Commission" as commanded by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The Ministry provides "talking" Bibles contextualized in their native languages to leaders within communities of oral learners. The ministry trains leaders to use "talking" Bibles to share the good news of Christ, and then, supports the leaders to assist in nurturing of their congregations and their continued outreach to unbelievers. This approach, which rises up and equips indigenous leaders, has proven to be effective, as the "talking" Bibles attract multiple listeners within the village at a time -- giving birth to Christian churches.
