Explore Bible Translation - Florida

Orlando, FL

When God puts serving in missions on your heart, it can feel like something out of reach. How do you figure out if missions is right for you?

Step out of the busyness of everyday life and come to Explore Bible Translation, our in-person event that is part spiritual retreat and part missionary prep to help you discern God’s voice on your next steps.

Serving as a missionary is not for the faint of heart. It is an immense task that often faces significant opposition. But if you are anchored in God's Word and committed to your faith, you can be part of a global mission that is deeply fulfilling, brings God's healing and has eternal impact.

At Explore Bible Translation you'll get:

  • Face-to-face conversations with current missionaries.
  • Insights to prepare you spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
  • Time for reflection and self-assessment.
  • Opportunities to explore how you can use your professional skills.
  • Worship and prayer with believers on the same journey as you.
  • Direct connections with partner missions organizations.
  • Stories from the field to inspire and challenge you.
  • Theological foundation for Bible translation.
  • Clear next steps for your journey.

God isn't calling you to missions alone. If you're up for an enriching adventure, as you rely on and learn from one another, you'll forge meaningful, intercultural relationships and develop a community where you can belong.
