In memory of Dr. George Cowan

Dr. George Cowan, former Bible translator and president emeritus of Wycliffe Bible Translators International, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, Feb. 11, 2017, at the age of 100.

“No one exemplified Wycliffe and commitment to reaching people with the Good News in a language and form they relate to best more than George Cowan,” said Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe USA. His passion and prayer life are legendary, and he will be missed greatly by the whole Wycliffe family.”

George served as President of Wycliffe Bible Translators International (now the Wycliffe Global Alliance) from 1956 to 1981.
