Is EXPLORE worth your time? Here's what others are saying.

"An engaging and interactive time."

"Filled with well-informed snapshots of what is involved in Bible translation."

"The reality of the need and the challenges of meeting it were not sugar-coated. They were viewed through the perspective of faith."

"We were inspired and encouraged to seek the Lord's direction for our lives."

"Seeing what God is doing and what is yet to be done helps me keep my focus in the right place."

"When I signed up to attend EXPLORE, I had no idea God was going to use it to begin radically changing my heart. Through the excellent teaching I realized God has chosen to use us to show His glory among the nations and we all have a vital part to play in bringing His Word to every people group in their heart language. This was an inspiring, challenging weekend that has drawn me closer to God and His heart for the nations."
