Bible Stories to Reach Sub-Saharan Africa

Share God’s Word throughout Sub-Saharan Africa using methods the local peoples can understand so they can respond in faith to Christ’s invitation to salvation.
Christians, the Church, and seekers struggle to understand Scripture all across Sub-Saharan Africa. Literacy challenges coupled with the lack of Scripture in the heart languages have hindered deep discipleship, evangelism, and leadership development. The StoryTogether is changing that reality and bringing the Bible alive in heart languages throughout the African continent! Your gift will underwrite StoryTogether training, sending the gospel to unreached peoples and places through Bible storytellers and audio recordings.

StoryTogether teaches local believers to craft Bible stories in their local language using the natural storytelling style of their people group. By teaching national believers to share the gospel in their heart languages, God’s Word will flow organically throughout their communities. Evangelism becomes a standard practice as the stories go out in a way that people can fully understand and respond to them. Deep discipleship becomes a lifestyle. Leadership development is inclusive. Participants can become trainers for other StoryTogether projects in their local context. In addition, the gospel will go to areas where missionaries cannot safely travel. Partner today with this ministry to send the Word of God across Sub-Saharan Africa so all people groups can have the chance to hear of God’s love and salvation through Jesus in their heart languages!

Location

Sub-Saharan African Peoples

From the jagged Atlas Mountains to the vast Sahara Desert and the wildlife of the Serengeti, Africa is unrivaled for natural beauty and the hospitality of her people. Most Sub-Saharan Africans live hand-to-mouth, surviving on what they can harvest and herd, but regardless of status or wealth, most Africans share a common bond in community, family, and tribe.

Home to 2,500 ethnic groups, the region once characterized by sweeping poverty is redefining itself with bustling economies and technological enterprise. Eleven of the twenty-five fastest-growing global cities are in Sub-Saharan Africa. Whether urban-or-village dwellers, though, many Africans still try to manipulate spiritual powers through charms, sacrifices, and divination. The hope of the gospel is desperately needed.

African believers are catching a vision for sharing their faith. Sub-Saharan Africa is poised to become a tremendous missionary-sending force. Ask God to fan the flames of evangelism and cover Africa with his glory.
