Forbes recognizes translation ministry as good place to work

United States (MNN) — When we’re job hunting, we will ask about the various employment opportunities: “Is this a good place to work? How do they treat their employees?” On the mission field, that question gets more specific: “Is this ministry effectively and responsibly sharing the Gospel? Do I agree with their mission?”

One ministry was recently recognized for being a great place to work, and it’s a ministry known for their commitment to the Great Commission.

Every year, Forbes Magazine puts out a list ranking the top rated midsize employers in the United States. This year, among the ranked employers was Wycliffe Bible Translators USA. The following press release by Wycliffe USA explains more:

Orlando-based Bible translation group is highest-ranked Christian organization in U.S.

Forbes Magazine has named Wycliffe Bible Translators USA among America’s Best Midsize Employers, an annual ranking that identifies companies and organizations that make their employees feel happy, inspired and well compensated. Orlando-based Wycliffe USA is the highest-ranking Christian organization on the 2017 list, and ranks 20th overall out of 301 employers.

“The leaders of Wycliffe USA know God deserves all the glory for this recognition,” said Bob Creson, president and CEO of Wycliffe USA. “Wycliffe USA personnel share the vision for reaching people with the Gospel, and understand the importance of giving people access to Scripture in the language and form they understand best.”

Forbes partners with German research firm Statista to compile its annual ranking of best midsize and large employers based on surveys collected from 30,000 employees. Employees shared whether they would recommend their own company to others, as well as rating their employers on factors such as pay, diversity and advancement opportunities, according to Forbes.

“The work we do is not easy, but being able to witness the life-changing impact Scripture has all over the world is a tremendous reward,” Creson said. “We’re blessed to have such wonderful and committed staff, volunteers and partners who make the work not only possible, but fruitful.”

This news is exciting, not only because a Christian organization was recognized, but because it highlights the importance of mutual Christian support within the work of the Great Commission. Wycliffe USA has a focused vision that includes representing Christ both in daily life and in the work they do. They depend on God to provide for all the needs that arise during the translation process.

Wycliffe USA is an example of how the Body of Christ can offer mutual encouragement to each other in order to get the work done. To learn more about this ministry and how you can partner with them, click here.
