Receipts Clerk

Job Type: Full Time
Job Location: Calgary - Head Office

Anticipated Start Date: Immediately


At Wycliffe Canada, we believe that the Bible is God’s message to all people EVERYWHERE and that when the Bible is available to people in the language that speaks directly to their hearts, individuals, families – and entire communities – can be transformed. However, of the 7,353 languages spoken by 7+ billion people around the world, there are 3,969 languages, representing 252 million people with not even a single verse of the Bible. Wycliffe Canada works to end this Bible poverty by facilitating the translation of God’s Word among minority language communities worldwide.

We serve our field partners in these key areas of ministry:

  1. Bible Translation
    The Scriptures point to Jesus, the source of life, salvation and peace. But 1 in 5 people around the world still do not have access to the whole Bible in a language and form they best understand. Much work remains, but it’s now possible to finish Scripture translation for those who still need it – in this generation.
  2. Engagement With Scripture
    Transformation happens when people engage the Bible in a language and form they best understand. Churches flourish when pastors teach and disciple in a language that they best understand and communities gain resources for healing and peacemaking.
  3. Literacy
    For many communities, literacy affirms dignity, preserves language, and sparks development. When people learn to read and write, they can share knowledge and access life-changing training in health and agriculture for the good of the whole community. Wider literacy equips lay leaders for deep participation in the local church.
  4. Capacity Building
    The sustainable impact of Bible translation needs local ownership, effective partnerships and innovation, this is why we also focus on capacity building. We serve the global movement by strengthening networks and offering training, resources and leadership. We love partnerships where creative solutions can be developed so people can be meaningfully transformed by God’s Word.
