A gathering of leaders from around the Alliance in July 2019

The Wycliffe Global Al­liance is a com­mu­nity of more than 100 di­verse or­ga­ni­sa­tions and networks serv­ing to­gether in Bible trans­la­tion move­ments around the world.

Alliance organisations share a common commitment: all people should have access to God’s Word in their preferred languages and formats. Hun­dreds of mil­lions of peo­ple still do not have God’s Word in the lan­guage they un­der­stand best. The Al­liance’s vi­sion is to see in­di­vid­u­als, com­mu­ni­ties and na­tions trans­formed through God’s love and Word ex­pressed in their lan­guages and cultures.

Wycliffe Global Alliance and Missiology

Wycliffe Global Alliance’s interest in missiology is key to our participation in the missio Dei (the mission of God). Missiology’s contribution to the Bible translation movement is to analyse its practises, intentions, attitudes, message and methods. This is in keeping with Samuel Escobar’s definition of missiology: “An interdisciplinary approach to understand missionary action [looking] at missionary facts from the perspectives of the biblical sciences, theology, history and the social sciences*.”
