Biblica Africa

Biblica’s mission is to provide the Bible in accurate, contemporary translations and formats so that more people around the world will have the opportunity to be transformed by Jesus Christ.

Since its formation in New York in 1809, Biblica has helped people beyond the reach of God’s Word discover the love of Jesus Christ. Biblica’s ministry operations in Africa launched in 1976 as Living Bibles. Since then, we have undergone several name changes. In 1992 the merger of Living Bibles and International Bible Society christened the organization International Bible Society. Today, we are Biblica: The International Bible Society. The Biblica Africa office is domiciled in Nairobi, Kenya and acts as the coordinating office for ministry across Africa.

There are 4 regional hubs charged with carrying out the Biblica Africa mandate centered on Gateway Translation, Rising Generations, and Frontline Church. These hubs are Southern Africa, West Africa, East Africa, and North-East Africa. Out of these regional hubs, Biblica trains and equips partners to deliver ministry throughout the continent. So far, we are partnering in ministry programs in close to 30 countries in Africa.

West Africa
The West Africa ministry hub is located in Nigeria with staff in both Nigeria and Ghana. This is a vast region that has both English and French as the most commonly spoken languages. This region stretches from DR Congo moving north into Chad and all the way to Senegal. The main ministry programs conducted in West Africa are Reach4Life, Church planting, and Outreach to Internally Displaced Persons.
North-East Africa
North-East Africa region has a powerful young adult’s ministry in partnership with Evangelical Students and Graduates Union of Ethiopia (EvaSUE) in Ethiopia. Biblica also equips Church leaders and provides them with the Amharic Study Bible to enable them conduct more effective pulpit ministry. We are also serving children with The Survivors book in Amharic, focusing on those whose lives are at risk.
East Africa
East Africa region covers Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi and South Sudan. In East Africa, children and youth are a key focus and programs such as Reach4Life and Children 4 Christ are vibrant. We also have great partnerships for Equipping Leaders program and outreach to prisoners, refugees and people of other faiths.

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
