Engaging the oral world with the Word of God

For all oral communicators to be able to engage effectively with the full Bible, translation efforts must go hand in hand with research and training, as well as creative and strategic initiatives among oral learners.

COS engages the world of oral communicators with the whole Word by:

  • Developing strategies grounded in ways and means that best suit their preferences rather than ours.
  • Helping leaders to bring the whole Word in ways that connect with the whole person.
  • Identifying missing links in outreach and discipleship among oral preference learners.
  • Creating a network of related autonomous centers around the world with regional leadership.
