TGC International Outreach is engaged in Theological Famine Relief for the Global Church. We create Relief Projects by working with translators, publishers, and printers here in North America as well as overseas, and donate these resources through global missions networks. Through your generous gifts, these projects enable us to strengthen thousands of church leaders in Asia, Africa, and South America.

Resource

The term “born again” is a precious term in the history of the Church. In his book, Finally Alive, John Piper takes the reader through a comprehensive study of Scripture and unveils what Jesus meant when He said, “You must be born again.” This book is one of the most lucid and thorough studies ever written for the believer in understanding the process from election, to “dead in our sins,” to new life and justification, and the process of sanctification. God is the great Doer of new birth and it is He that gives us eternal life!

 

Language

While the majority of the world speaks and communicates in local languages, globalization has created one major stream of communication—Global English. It is the official language of 53 nations (one-fourth of the world), and it is estimated that another billion people speak it as their second language. Nearly 1,742,600,000 are able to access, read, and comprehend resources in the English language. That’s more than 1 out of 5 people in the world!

 

While we continue to pursue translation into key languages, many times it is more cost effective to make English resources available to pastors, seminaries, and those who train church leaders. Global English is vital for equipping Christian leaders with selected biblical works.
