Help bring translated, biblical teaching to everyone, everywhere.
Many around the world are desperate for translated discipleship resources. For every $1, we can help disciple up to 4 people. Join the Messenger Collective, our community of generous partners committed to closing the global discipleship gap every month.
Together, we’re closing the gap.
Over 2 billion people still have little to no biblical teaching in their own language to help them become mature disciples.
Together, we’re closing the gap.
Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations, not just converts.
Most people on earth have access to a Bible in their language, but lack sound, Christian teaching to help them apply it to their lives.
With your help, we’re changing that.
Since 2011, we’ve given over 50 million resources in 116 languages in over 228 nations.
We are the leading provider of translated resources in languages spoken by 1.677 billion people.
We are the only known provider of translated resources in languages spoken by 517 million people.
How can $1
a day disciple
We find people groups with discipleship needs and help determine the most critical teaching resources that would address it.
Current translations in production include Javanese, Somali, Danish, and over 10+ other languages.
Our extensive network of translators produce the resources in their respective languages.
In 2022 alone, we will translate the first ever known discipleship resources into languages spoken by a cumulative 216 million people.
We distribute both physical and digital resources to pastors, leaders, and church networks around the globe, who use this teaching to equip the local body of believers.
For every $1 you give, we reach an estimated 4 people.
We are all messengers
A ‘Messenger’ is more than someone on a stage or with a platform. You become a messenger when you deliver precious messages of hope to those who need them most.
Together, we can equip believers → to build strong churches → that transform local communities.
