A Story Worth Telling...

Because everybody needs to know​

Together We Can Tell The Story

Get Story Set Audio

Want to hear story sets? We have them in over 80 languages at our media site: OneStory-Media.org

The majority of the world’s unreached people groups are made up of oral preference learners, who often have no written language of their own. In order to reach them, OneStory works with mother-tongue speakers to develop and record worldview-sensitive, chronological Bible “story sets” for each specific group — typically 25 to 50 stories in a three to four year period.

Mother-tongue speakers spread the stories to others. These story sets can be the first step toward a traditional written translation or non-print media like the JESUS film or The HOPE video.

Our goal is to be a catalyst in initiating such work in more than 5,500 UPGs (unreached people groups) who need access to the good news.

OneStory’s unique training process has been tested in multiple countries and languages. Mobilization efforts are underway in Africa, Asia, Europe and Latin America to train and equip workers to reach out in their own countries and across borders.

Issachar Initiative

The OneStory Partnership is now recognized as one of the Count for Zero Organizations by The Issachar Initiative. It is very natural to have OneStory and Issachar partner together. Issachar has a strong focus on reaching the unreached, which is what OneStory has always been about. We are excited to be a part of the larger community of believers with whom God has put this vision in their hearts. We want to be connected with all those who are about God’s vision for Unreached People Groups (UPGs). This is one more step at getting the Body of Christ being just that, a well functioning body, each part doing what God made them to be. OneStory wants to do what it can to be a blessing to our brothers and sisters in this effort.

Telling God’s Story to the Sweater Women

September 2004, my teammate and I headed from the U.S. to an unreached people group living in the Himalaya Mountains. Due to the extreme violence that both workers and new believers have faced, I will refer to them as the Sweater People and testify how I saw God’s story touch their hearts.

Our goal was to live among the Sweater People, learn about them, and love them. We were to find a person of peace who would help us develop a Chronological Bible Story Set which would both touch the hearts and needs of the Sweater People and give them a biblical worldview.

Voice in the Night

Night after night, James was awakened by a voice that said, “Read the book on the shelf.” So he began to read, and each night as he read more and more of God’s Word, his heart was touched. His life began to change. He gradually quit practicing his religious rituals, and his family and the community took notice. Jesus became irresistible to James and in the quiet of one of those nights, James surrendered to him…
