Aims of the role

God has chosen to work through his people. When we join in with his mission through prayer, God is glorified and we can watch expectantly to see him move in power to do immeasurably more than we ever ask or imagine.

Church representatives play a vital role in the Bible translation movement by encouraging their churches to pray for translation projects around the world. They connect Wycliffe and the local church, sharing prayer needs, praising God for wonderful answers to prayer, and keeping the church informed of relevant events and opportunities.

Key tasks

  • Encourage others in your church to join you in praying regularly for the work of Wycliffe
  • Using the prayer diary in Wycliffe’s magazine Words for Life, and the urgent prayer needs we occasionally share on WhatsApp (find out more about how we do this here), bring specific prayer requests to your church’s prayer and mission meetings.

Personal attributes

  • Passionate about prayer and the mission of Wycliffe
  • Committed member/part of a local church
  • Able to maintain confidentiality.
