Telling the Story of Jesus in Every Language
Global Recordings Network creates, preserves, and distributes audio recordings of Bible stories in more than 6,300 languages. Together with our missionaries, ministry partners, and local bilingual speakers all around the world, we have been teaching the basics of the gospel and introducing people to Jesus Christ since 1939.
The USA headquarters for Global Recordings Network is located in Temecula, California, about 90 miles southeast of Los Angeles, where our global ministry was founded in 1939. Today, our office plays a critical role in the international network, as we maintain and update the global digital archive, along with prayerfully and financially supporting the good work our team is doing all around the world.
THE POWER OF STORYTELLING
Jesus’ most common form of teaching was storytelling, using parables and imagery from everyday life to communicate love and truth. Global Recordings Network seeks to honor and continue that tradition by captivating and convincing new audiences with stories recorded with authentic local voices.
More than two-thirds of the world’s population are oral communicators, people who prefer to learn and communicate using oral rather than written methods. In many cases, these individuals cannot read or their community does not have a written language. This presents obvious challenges to accessing God’s Word.
Our passion is telling the story of Jesus to the people in these communities and others who might otherwise never encounter Christ.
It’s no secret what storytelling has meant to the history of Christianity. At Global Recordings Network, we know what storytelling means for the future of our faith, too.
OUR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK
Here at Global Recordings Network USA, we are proud to be part of a ministry network that has introduced so many people to Christ.
Our international alliance includes about 50 offices and bases around the world, all connected by a common commitment to telling the story of Jesus in every language. Together we have recorded, preserved, and distributed recordings in more than 6,300 languages and dialects since 1939.
We recruit, train, equip, and deploy recordists and other skilled people from all over the world. These recording teams identify priority languages and then, in consultation with our global alliance and ministry partners, identify appropriate scripts and content to produce high-quality audio and audio-visual programs using local speakers and culturally-appropriate styles.

Our work to build and strengthen the kingdom of God goes even farther thanks to our partnerships around the world. More than 15 international ministry organizations depend on our audio and visual materials to fulfill their missions and enhance their evangelistic and discipleship efforts.
