The mission of the Center for Oral Scriptures is to enhance access, understanding and application of the whole Word of God among oral learners and is committed to raise up a generation of leaders for transformation training, and strategic mission to every oral people by 2033.
2016 was filled with great strides in the advancement of research, training and network building globally.
One of the biggest foundations that was laid is the Global Orality Mapping Project. This is a multi-year mapping process of oral people groups that aims to aid the mission force to more accurately define, describe, and identify the oral majority and their degree of orality reliance. The project puts an emphasis on all remaining unreached people groups in order to better serve them and enable them to engage with the Word of God.
Raising awareness: COS supports the International Orality Network in building a global network that raises awareness, promotes best practices, forms new collaborations and awakens the Body of Christ to meet the discipleship and holistic needs of oral people.
