About Us

We have provided practical and technological support to those doing Bible translation since 1948.

We help our global partners get the support they need most, whether that’s a laptop and Internet access, a life jacket and water safety training or a flight to a remote island or mountaintop village. In the words of Cameron Townsend, founder of JAARS, SIL and Wycliffe Bible Translators, “Airplanes and radios don’t just make translation easier; they make it possible.” 


Who We Are

JAARS is a multidisciplinary team of problem-solvers who are committed to the belief and the vision that people’s lives and communities are transformed as they experience God’s Word in their own language. 


We are a community of missionaries, dedicated volunteers and a few employees who work together to accomplish the Great Commission goal of providing Scripture to every people group on earth in the language they understand best: their own language. We do that by supporting Bible translation and language development partners globally and by working with prayer and financial partners in the United States to help make a range of unique on-the-field solutions possible.


What We Do

JAARS exists to make Bible translation and language development possible, especially in the most remote places on earth. We do that by enabling locally appropriate and sustainable solutions in transportation, technology, media and training.


Sometimes, our boots are on the ground or in the air or on the water. Other times, we’re providing expertise, training, logistical support, research and development, project management or funding. In all cases, we’re working hand-in-hand with global field partners to identify, design, test, refine and implement solutions that can be sustained going forward.


It’s Easy to Make a Difference.

Prayer, service, advocacy, funding—all are critical and all are blessed. We invite you to listen to your heart explore how God might lead you to help make life transformation possible through Bible translation. Come serve with us.
