Telling the Story of Jesus in Every Language
Global Recordings Network creates, preserves, and distributes audio recordings of Bible stories in more than 6,400 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 Los Angeles and moved to Temecula, CA, in the early 2000’s. Currently the USA headquarters for Global Recordings Network is located in Tucson, AZ.
THE POWER OF STORYTELLING
Jesus’ most common form of teaching was storytelling, using parables and imagery from everyday life to communicate the truth in love. Global Recordings Network seeks to honor and continue that tradition by capturing authentic local voices which speak out God’s truth for new audiences.
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 or understand the Gospel message.
OUR INTERNATIONAL NETWORK
Here at Global Recordings Network USA, we are thrilled to be used by God with the rest of our global ministry network that has, over the decades, 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 6,400 languages and dialects since 1939.
We recruit, train, equip, and deploy recordists and other skilled fielders from all over the world. These surveying identify priority languages and then, in consultation with our global alliance and ministry partners, recording teams identify appropriate scripts and content in order to produce high-quality audio and AV programs using local speakers and culturally-appropriate styles.

Our work to build and strengthen the kingdom of God is made possible because God raised up this ministry as a testimony to His ability to provide all our needs through Christ Jesus. We thank our partners around the world. Dozens of international ministry organizations have used 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!
