(Mission Network News) — The Every Tribe Every Nation movement has an incredible all-access goal for the Great Commission. This coalition of ministries is aiming to get a full Bible into every language used by at least 500,000 people by 2033.

Deaf Bible Society is part of Every Tribe Every Nation alliance and is helping advance the all-access Bible translation goal—specifically for sign languages!

JR Bucklew, president of Deaf Bible Society, explains, “Our role isn’t doing translation on the ground. Our role is really highlighting the projects, bringing awareness, [and] helping resource them. We work with national partners on the ground. We recognize that as the fastest way we’re going to be able to accomplish this vision.”

For all languages used by 5,000-500,000 people, Every Tribe Every Nation also hopes to make the New Testament available by 2033. And for languages with populations of less than 5,000, the alliance of ministries aims to get at least 25 chapters of Scripture translated by 2033.

    Can deaf people not just…read the Bible? You don’t need to be able to hear to read and study it. This seems like a waste of resources.
