Wycliffe USA’s Vision 2025 Update

Over the past 75 years, Wycliffe USA has celebrated several major milestones. The ministry celebrated its first Bible translation in 1951 and its 500th in 2000.

Around that time, Wycliffe and its partners took a bold stand, one they called “Vision 2025,” Executive Vice President of Partnerships Andy Keener says.

“This is the desire to see Bible translation begun in every community where it’s needed by the year 2025.”

Bible translators have made tremendous headway in the past quarter century. More language communities have access to God’s Word today than ever before, but serious needs remain.

Roughly 22 percent of all the world’s languages still need to start a Bible translation, and the clock is ticking. Only two years remain before we cross the threshold into 2025.

“A few years ago, there were parts of the world we looked at and said, ‘Well, I just don’t think it’s going to happen there.’ The ones that are left are the hardest to get to; these are some difficult places, but we’re seeing momentum,” Keener says.
