Approximately 80% of earth’s people are “Oral-Preference Learners” who 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. 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.
To equip and train indigenous, local and regional partner organizations worldwide to communicate the Scriptures using Oral Bible Strategies in order to evangelize, disciple and plant churches among unreached people groups. “Every Tribe, Tongue and Nation” hearing the gospel helps to reach the lost, unreached and unengaged.
To reach oral cultures using traditional oral arts; such as Storytelling, Drama, Music, and Dance. Through orality, our hope is that every oral learner will develop a love and appreciation of the scriptures in their own mother tongue and will multiply the number of followers of Jesus, by sharing God’s Word among their own people.
To hold closely to the qualities and values defined and accepted by our Lord and Savior in living out a life as a “follower of Jesus” with the fruits of the spirit in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23).
