About Pioneer Bible Translators

Who We Are

Pioneer Bible Translators® bridges the gap between the church and the Bibleless peoples around the world. Our team is composed of Bible translators, literacy evangelists, church planters and a variety of support personnel working to see transformed lives through God’s Word in every language. Pioneer Bible Translators is working in 29 countries in 123 languages that impact 189 million people.

We are seeking new missionaries who will step up and meet the need for incarnational ministry among Bibleless peoples. Pioneer Bible Translators currently sends missionaries from Canada and the United States. Our International Service Center, located in Dallas, Texas, is crucial in attaining our global ministry goals. From here, missionaries train and prepare for cross-cultural ministry.

Pioneer Bible Translators exists to disciple the Bibleless, mobilizing God’s people to provide enduring access to God’s Word.

Transformed lives through God’s Word in every language

Our Primary Strategy

Prayer is our strategy.

Core Values

We do what we do because we value…

  • The Church as God’s instrument to accomplish His mission that all peoples would glorify and worship Him
  • Pioneering among the least-reached, Bibleless language groups, planting a network of reproducing churches adapted to the context
  • Enduring Access to God’s Word as essential for life transformation, discipleship, and growing the church
  • Obeying Christ’s Commission by teaching people to follow Jesus and by living out the values of His Kingdom
  • Partnering with like-minded people to accomplish mutual goals
  • Living Incarnationally with the local people, learning from deep relationships and communicating in the most effective language
  • Equipping those we send, their families, and local teammates for healthy and effective ministry

The Bible Doesn’t Exist in Every Language — Yet.

Right now, more than 1,600 language groups are still waiting for God’s Word. But working together, our generation can translate Scripture into every viable language on Earth.
