JAARS exists to make Bible translation and language development possible, especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. We do that by enabling locally-appropriate and sustainable solutions in transportation (equipment, training and support for aviation, maritime and land travel), technology (equipment, training and support for power, Internet access and remote communications), media (equipment and support for audio/video production/distribution), and training (pre- and on-field intercultural communications and spiritual vitality). As of 2021, JAARS supports dozens of partner organizations worldwide who are engaged directly in Bible translation and/or language development, including but not limited to: SIL and members of the Wycliffe Global Alliance. For more information about JAARS, including our vision, mission, how and where we work, and who we partner with, please visit us at https://jaars.org.

For more than 65 years, JAARS has helped make Bible translation possible. We support over 70 partner organizations around the world with transportation, technology, media and training. From aviation and intercultural training to research and development, advocacy and a range of other support services it is the very core of our work to make Bible translation possible. Your gift to Core Mission Fund supports our entire ministry.
Steep, endless mountain ranges. Dense rainforest. Ocean waves as far as you can see. What do these areas have in common? Besides great beauty and evidence of God’s creative hand, they are where the remote, often forgotten people of the world live. And they’re all geographical barriers to Bible translators who desire to reach those people with God’s Word. JAARS has 70+ years of experience solving these transportation problems so that people living and working off the grid can focus on the work Go
Your gift can move Bible translation and Scripture distribution forward through the projects our partners need most. We often find great ways to help our partners around the world and can respond to their most pressing and strategic needs.These are usually projects that are crucial for Bible translation ands have a timing issue that requires immediate funding. We will post updates and photos to www.jaars.org so you can see exactly how your gift helped Bible translation.
