Lutheran Bible Translators (USA):
About Lutheran Bible Translators:
Founded in 1964, Lutheran Bible Translators is an independent mission organization dedicated to helping bring people to faith in Jesus Christ by making the Word of God available to those who do not yet have it in the language of their hearts.
In the world today there are over 6,800 languages. Over 4,500, or 66%, still have no portion of Scripture. LBT believes that no language or cultural barrier should prevent people from having access to God’s Word. That is why LBT works with Lutheran church bodies and Bible translation organizations worldwide – so that every person has the opportunity to read, hear, and understand God’s Good News in the language of their hearts.
LBT recruits Lutherans to become missionaries to serve as Bible translation advisors and consultants, or as specialists in literacy, literature development, language survey and vernacular media. Support workers are recruited and sent to carry out specialized tasks such as tutoring missionary children or using computers to strengthen the language programs.
