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

Upon arrival in PNG church planters begin with study of the national trade language and PNG culture.  After forming teams church planters 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, church planters 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 is to see new believers discipled and develop local church leadership.
