The Storytellers

  • More than 70% of the world's population – 5.7 billion – are oral learners by necessity or by preference.

  • Before writing was developed, cultures passed their traditions, history, identity, and religion through stories, proverbs, poems, songs, and riddles.

  • The ancient practice of orality continues to this day. Oral art forms are spoken, sung or chanted. They are woven into ceremonies, dramas and rites of passage.

  • Storytelling is reaching into communities where the name of Jesus has never been heard.

  • Your gifts to WGS Ministries help us spread the gospel through stories and train indigenous believers reach new areas with the story of Jesus.

  • Watch this 2-minute video that describes how God is using storytelling today.
