StoryRunners Greatest Needs

Today, there are 2.17 billion oral learners who live in unreached people groups. That’s 2.17 billion people who, even if handed a Bible in their language today, wouldn’t be able to understand its message. Literate or textual ministry methods fail to connect with the heart of oral learners. However, time and time again, we have seen that oral people groups are open to God’s Word; they simply need to receive His Word in a method that best speaks to their hearts: oral Bible storying. 

God desires that people from every tongue, tribe and language have the opportunity to hear His gospel; and, through oral Bible storying, StoryRunners is helping fulfill the Great Commission. Our vision is to see followers of Christ in communities of faith in every unreached oral people group. Will you join us in reaching oral cultures, story by story?

Story Bible Translations to the Unreached

Of today’s 7,000 languages worldwide, 3,700 languages have no known Scripture. Many people who speak these languages are oral learners—they use stories and songs to pass down their culture, history and values. Oral Bible storying speaks directly to the hearts of oral learners. 

Our vision is to launch communities of multiplying disciples among 500 unreached people groups by using oral Bible stories by 2025. Through your partnership, you are helping take the light of the gospel to some of the spiritually darkest places on earth story by story! Thank you!

Evangelism, Discipleship and Church Planting

Followers of Christ in a local community of faith is the most important result of providing oral Bible stories to an unreached people group. Missionaries in the book of Acts, like Paul and his friends, planted churches and then visited them to encourage them in their growth. During the StoryRunners School of Storying, we not only help local participants develop an oral Bible story set; we also equip the participants to strategically use those stories for effective evangelism, discipleship and church planting.

StoryRunners Expansion: Great Commission

Our vision is to reach 500 unreached oral people groups by 2025, but in order to fulfill this vision we need growth as a ministry.
