Worldwide Wycliffe– Wycliffe Member Orientation
8-12 July 2019
Who was John Wycliffe and why was his name used to reignite the Bible translation movement? What is the difference between Wycliffe and SIL? What are the latest translation, literacy and Scripture engagement trends? What are my strengths and how would I work best in a multi-cultural team? Where do I best fit into the Bible translation ministry?
