Wycliffe Bible Translators of Canada is a unique ministry. Since 1968, Wycliffe Canada has served minority language groups worldwide by fostering an understanding of God’s Word through Bible translation, while nurturing literacy, education and stronger communities. Our team and our partners strive to create access to education for language groups around the world. We want marginalized groups, the poor and the overlooked to have a chance to know God’s incredible love and escape poverty. Wycliffe Canada is changing lives by translating God’s Word into the heart language of the people and communities we serve.
A Sense of Urgency
In 1999, motivated by the desire to accelerate the pace of Bible translation worldwide, Wycliffe adopted Vision 2025. It’s a bold call to action and commitment; a firm "no" to the status quo; it's thinking "outside the box" and a willingness to take risks. Together with partners worldwide, we envision Bible translation in progress, for every language that needs it, by 2025.
Worldwide, active Scripture translation and/or linguistic development is underway in nearly 2,300 languages spanning approximately 130 countries. We rejoice in the progress being made, but greater acceleration is needed to provide God's life-changing Word for every language group.
Wycliffe is opening the book on God’s love around the world.
