Globally, four billion people are known as “oral communicators,” or non-literates, and do not yet have the written Scriptures in their mother tongue.
A like-minded ministry called Scriptures In Use (SIU) has developed a successful methodology to reach non-literates which includes storytelling, dramatic presentations of the parables, cultural adaptations of Scripture to song, and memorization.
The training provides church planters with methods that are culturally, linguistically, and spiritually in tune with the worldview and learning styles of the people they minister to.
We have found this method to be extremely well received among the pastors and church planters we serve. Twenty Christian Outreach Fellowship church planters will take part, taking what they learn back to their home areas to train others.
