As we start the year, we give thanks to God for five years of close and enjoyable collaboration between Redcliffe College and Wycliffe Bible Translators.
The relationship centred around two MA programmes, through which we have equipped over 100 students for work with people speaking minority languages in every corner of the globe. It’s been a joy to walk together with these students in their professional development and see them both growing in skill and confidence and making a difference, wherever they are.
From June 2019, these MA programmes will be phased out, as both organisations focus on new initiatives. Redcliffe continues to strengthen the delivery of its MA programmes in Member Care, Leadership and Contemporary Missiology at various hubs around the world, whilst Wycliffe will continue to ensure training is provided for those serving with the organisation (an announcement will be made in due course).
There will be plenty of time for adjustment over the next months, and to celebrate the relationships that have been developed. We’re thankful for the positive experience we’ve had working closely together and the ways the partnership has strengthened both Redcliffe and Wycliffe, providing opportunities for both organisations to learn and grow.
We look forward to opportunities to work together in other ways and seek God’s blessing on the future plans of both organisations.
