1.5 billion people are still waiting

For over 60 years, we’ve been pioneering and innovating; working alongside communities big and small, creating partnerships, and training local people to translate the Bible.

Today, Wycliffe Bible Translators is engaged with 326 minority language groups around the world that make up 469 million people, but globally, 1.5 billion people are still waiting for the complete Bible in the language they understand best.

The Short Term Mission Coordinator will manage and develop our ‘GradTeam’ programme: a year long opportunity for recent graduates to do some linguistic training in the UK and serve with one of our partners overseas. There may also be opportunities to work on wider aspects of Wycliffe’s mission.

The role requires a self starter, with excellent cross-cultural and inter-personal skills and experience running short term mission trips.
