Lisa Kappeler being interviewed

“I can’t imagine doing what we do without computers. It’s pretty vital.”

Lisa Kappeler, Bible translator to the Uriay people of Papua New Guinea and translation consultant

How does IT fit into missions?

“I just can’t imagine the amount of time that was spent in making corrections that I do now with one button.”

Technology has transformed Lisa Kappeler’s ministry over her 11 years as a Bible translator among the Uriay people of Papua New Guinea and as a Bible translation consultant.

But it takes IT professionals behind the scenes to allow that “push of a button” to happen.

You, as an IT professional, can help missionaries everyday to:

  • Learn a new language more quickly
  • Understand a foreign culture
  • Translate the Bible faster and accurately
  • Produce Bible curriculum
  • Develop literacy materials
  • Communicate with consultants
  • Equip the church

You can use your IT skills in missions in Canada or overseas as Security and Compliance Administrators, Data and Intelligence Analysts, Network and Systems Engineers, Hardware and Software Technicians, Software Programmers and Developers and Training Specialists and End-User Support.

Lisa concludes, “I can’t imagine doing what we do without computers. It’s pretty vital.”

Church Planter/Development

After arriving in Asia Pacific church planters/developers will begin and become highly proficient in the language and culture of Asia Pacific.  After team formation the church planters/developers will move into villages and begin an intense time of culture and language acquisition of the local language while building relationships among the people.  After reaching proficiency in the culture and language, the church planters/developers will write Bible lessons and translate Old Testament portions and the New Testament into the local language.  This takes place while systematically teaching Bible lessons in order to build an understanding of God’s Word.  In most cases the church planting team is involved in literacy training.  The ongoing work of the church planter/developer is to see new believers discipled and develop local church leadership.

In some cases, a national church presence has previously been established in a village setting and we are being requested to come alongside these ministries to assist in the maturation process.  Literacy, lesson development, Bible translation, teaching and other typical church planting/developing ministries still apply to these situations.
