Welcome to Wycliffe Caribbean!

Wycliffe Caribbean is part of the Wycliffe Bible Translators International family of organisations. We believe the worldwide Christian Church is responsible to evangelise the world and to disciple the nations. Wycliffe, therefore, exists to assist the Church in this task.

This site focuses on how Caribbean people and churches can be involved in the worldwide task of Bible translation. It also provides links to the websites of other Wycliffe organisations around the world.



Here comes WYnet

The student Christian movement in Jamaica is poised to become more focused on playing a role in cross-cultural evangelism as a result of a newly formed alliance between Wycliffe Bible Translators Jamaica and the Inter Schools Christian Fellowship.

Speaking with the Gleaner, John Roomes, director of Wycliffe Bible Translators Caribbean, explained that in September, a number of high schools and tertiary institutions will be forming Wycliffe Youth Network Clubs (WYnet Clubs) to promote the cause of translating the scriptures into every known indigenous tongue — as well as other aspects of cross-cultural evangelism.

Total Number of Languages in the World: 6,912

Most people are surprised to hear that there are over 6,900 languages in use around the world today. More than 380 million people speaking 4,147 different languages do not have any part of God's Word available in the languages they know best. There is no translation project yet begun for the speakers of 2,737 languages.

Over 611 New Testaments have been produced with the help of Wycliffe Bible Translators. Wycliffe members are currently helping to translate the Bible into the languages of an additional 1,376 people groups. We also work closely with these people groups to encourage literacy, so that the Bible, once translated, does not remain a closed book.

Caribbean Languages and Bible Translation Status

Many of the living languages of the Caribbean already have either the full Bible or at least the New Testament. Others have Bible translation projects in progress. The 500th New Testament produced with the help of Wycliffe translators was for Javanese of Suriname in 2000. Click here for more information.

Wycliffe Bible Translators

For the last 70 years, Wycliffe has been helping to bridge the gap between God's Word and Bibleless peoples around the world. Vision 2025 is our international co-operative strategy to have a translation in progress for every language that needs it by the year 2025.

The Caribbean arm of Wycliffe Bible Translators is still a young organisation. Yet, in spite of this, we believe that God has empowered us to take on a significant portion of that load, as the Caribbean Church is a strong and growing Church and has a great deal to contribute in every area of cross-cultural world missions. We share and fully embrace the charge, "Moving from mission field to mission force,"the electrifying declaration of the Caribbean Church, made in May 2000 by the Evangelical Association of the Caribbean (EAC).

Whether you are willing to support this work in prayer and other ways, or whether you are looking for dynamic and life-changing career choices, we hope that this site will help you find the information you need.
