Telling the Story of Jesus in Every Language

Global Recordings Network creates, preserves, and distributes audio recordings of Bible stories in more than 6,500 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.

Our global ministry was founded in 1939 in Los Angeles, California. The USA headquarters for Global Recordings Network is currently located in Tucson, Arizona. Today, our office prayerfully and financially supports the good work the international team is doing in dozens of locations 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 delighting new audiences with stories recorded using authentic local voices.

More than two-thirds of the world’s population are oral communicators, 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 oral story of Jesus to the people in these communities and others who might otherwise never encounter Christ.

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 in their own heart language.

Our international alliance includes about 40 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 6,500 recordings since 1939.

We recruit, train, equip, and deploy recordists and other skilled people from all over the world. 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 use our audio and visual materials to fulfill their missions and enhance their evangelistic and discipleship efforts. Thousands of believers have prayed, given, and gotten involved. To God be the glory!
