Explore your next step into Bible translation

1.5 billion people worldwide still cannot access the Bible in their own language. Explore Online is an opportunity to see how your skills and experience could play a vital role in getting these people access to the Scriptures.

This year’s course will be an online programme spanning two weekends, exploring whether now is the right time for you to embark on the journey towards service with us and what that journey involves.

What’s Explore Online about?

Explore Online is a unique chance for people of all ages to listen to the experiences of those working in the field with Wycliffe and find out what work with us looks like.

We start with the vision for transformational development through Bible translation. Then in subsequent morning and evening sessions, we will hear what life overseas is like, how to go about raising financial support and how to work in healthy multicultural teams.

There will be sessions covering the application process, training with Wycliffe and the role of sending churches. Through it all, we encourage you to note and ask your questions – and we will do our best to answer them!

Whether individuals are looking to study Bible translation at the School of Language and Scripture or start the process into becoming a Wycliffe member, we’re looking forward to welcoming you to Explore Online.

For more details about the Explore Online course, please register your interest below and we will be in touch shortly.

If you are thinking of coming on Explore Online we would encourage you to discuss this with your church leadership. We believe that mission should originate from within our own local churches, so we would encourage you to involve them early on!

Please note: due to the nature of the programme we will be capping numbers at 20, so we would encourage you to register your interest as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. In order to build a sense of community during the online course we ask that people commit to both weekends. The course will include a two-hour programme on both Friday evenings, and several sessions on both Saturdays. We will include plenty of breaks!
