Who We Are and Spiritual Requirements

GRN is a non-profit Christian religious organization that tells the story of Jesus in every language around the world. Our vision is that people might hear and understand God’s Word in their heart language, especially those who are oral communicators and those who do not have Scriptures in a form they can access. Our Mission is to partner with the Church, to effectively communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ by means of culturally appropriate audio and audio-visual materials in every language.

GRN recruits, selects, and equips individuals to become more involved—or mobilized—for work in the U.S. to support the world wide recording mission. Staff members are disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples through their personal interactions and through their work. Each staff member is expected:

  • to be a committed follower of Jesus Christ, who believes that salvation cannot happen apart from faith in Christ’s atonement on the cross, by grace alone becoming born again, thus beginning a personal relationship with Christ, the resurrected Son of God.
  • to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.
  • to be a Christian whose lifestyle is consistent with Christian principles, is compatible with GRN’s Statement of Faith and committed to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
