imagine a world where every ear can hear the word of god in their heart language

“So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.” —Romans 10:17

When it comes to the EPIDEMIC OF scripture poverty, It’s time to start a new chapter

At New Generations, we dream of a world where every man, woman, and child has access to the Word of God and can be transformed by it — no matter how they learn. And we are inviting you to join us in making this dream a reality!

You might not realize it, but 1,100 people groups (tribes) around the world don’t have even a single verse of the Bible in their own “heart language.” And 5 billion people in the world today prefer audible over written communication.

This makes traditional Bible translation projects problematic since most produce printed Bibles that two-thirds of earth’s population can’t read or won’t read because they learn by listening.

Yes, it’s time to start a new chapter in Bible translation — and we’re inviting you to take part!

HOW AUDIBLE BIBLE TRANSLATION WORKS

Audio players are loaded with Scripture sets, ensuring everyone in the community can hear and respond to God’s Word.

The power of audible scripture

Our pioneering Bible translation approach has revolutionized how Scriptures are delivered to “audible-preferred” cultures.

After a promising pilot in 24 languages, New Generations launched Ending Scripture Poverty 1.0 in September 2021, with the goal of translating 4 core Scripture sets (approximately 1,200 verses) into 300 languages over 5 years and raising $1.5 million.

As of March 2024, thanks to generous supporters, we’ve initiated translations for 231 languages.

Impact beyond the numbers

The success of our audible Bible translation has catalyzed the formation of over 3,000 Discovery Bible Studies and the planting of more than 1,000 churches.

Fourteen languages have seen such significant engagement that they’ve reached “movement” status — defined as at least 100 churches spread across four generations.

These milestones signify a vibrant, expanding community of faith, and evidence of God’s active presence and transformative power of His Word!

Going Deeper, Wider, & Longer

New Generations is poised to expand this initiative through Ending Scripture Poverty 2.0, aiming to go DEEPER, WIDER, and LONGER with our work to reach more people for Jesus:

  • DEEPER by adding 5 new audible sets of Scripture to the existing 300 languages.
  • WIDER by adding 500 new languages to receive the core 4 audible sets of Bible translation.
  • LONGER by adding a global team of coaches and coordinators and an expanded worship and arts work to sustain new the movements produced.

ETERNAL Impact — For Just $7

A one-time gift of $7 today translates one verse of the Bible that lasts forever! And since it will be in an audible format, it makes the eternal Word of God accessible to those who learn by listening. Imagine the impact of translating an entire Scripture set!
