Would you enjoy eating an unpeeled banana?

For over 2000 people groups - 150 million people - that’s exactly what reading the Bible is like when they can’t access it in their own languages. As one woman in Asia described, “Reading the Scripture in another language is like eating a banana with the skin on. Now the Scripture in my language is satisfying… like a sweet banana. I can’t get enough of it!”

Wycliffe USA brings together passionate, like-minded, creative individuals from every skill set who believe the Word of God can transform lives when people hear it in their own language.

Join our, innovative, global team and discover a role where you can help “peel a banana” and make an eternal impact!
