At JAARS, our mission is to make Bible translation and language development possible, especially in the most remote and difficult places on earth. To do that, we enable locally appropriate and sustainable solutions in transportation, technology, media, and training.
JAARS helps dozens of partner organizations get whatever support they need most, whether it’s a laptop and internet access, a lifejacket and water safety training, a flight to a remote island or mountaintop village, or some other solution. In the words of Cameron Townsend, founder of JAARS, SIL International, and Wycliffe Bible Translators, “Airplanes and radios don’t just make translation easier; they make it possible.”
JAARS is a community of full-time 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 a language they understand clearly. We support our Bible translation and language development partners globally by working with prayer and financial partners in the United States to help make a range of vital on-the-field solutions possible.
