As a program of IBLT, our objective is to assist the Body of Christ in mobilizing and equipping a generation of translators and practitioners committed to enabling high orality reliant people groups to gain access and to engage with the whole Word of God.
In the Old Testament God provides a roadmap for discipling an oral nation and demonstrates a plethora of oral methodologies. Benefitting from the tremendous resources of the language, land, and cultural/historical context of the Bible, COS serves as a vital Kingdom multiplier among high orality reliant learners by:
- heighten our understanding of the people, the contexts and the strengths and weaknesses of our mission strategies.
- help resolve problems and challenges on difficult mission fields, and address the issues that mean most to them.
- raise the bar on evaluating the impact of our work based on real Kingdom community transformation.
