Reaching the
Unreached
Through Storytelling

80% of the Earth’s People are “Oral-Preference Learners.”
Traditional literate evangelism techniques do not reach these people groups.

“Oral-Preference Learners” prefer to share and pass information, knowledge, and
history through oral communication. Many of them cannot read or write, while
others simply prefer non-print forms of communication.

There are an estimated 5.7 billion people who are oral learners. This includes
3 billion adults, 900 million very young children, and 450 million children between
the ages of eight and fifteen; all of these have basic or below basic literacy skills

Scriptures in Use equips and empowers local, indigenous leaders to reach their
communities with the Gospel in their native language.

We believe that SIU can reach the unreached, unengaged, oral-
culture people groups through the influence and application of
Oral Bible strategies, which will result in more grass root church
planters and disciples.
