The majority of the world’s unreached people groups are made up of oral-preference learners, who often have no written language of their own. In order to reach them, OneStory works with mother-tongue speakers to develop and record worldview-sensitive, chronological Bible “story sets” for each specific group — typically 40 to 60 stories in a two-year period. Mother-tongue speakers spread the stories to others. These story sets form the beginnings of an “oral Bible” to be told and retold for generations.
Five organizations, including Wycliffe International, Campus Crusade for Christ, International Mission Board, Youth With A Mission, and Trans World Radio have joined together to create a two-year program called OneStory Quest. Together we are working on new strategies and providing resources to reach the remaining Bibleless peoples.
