Wycliffe Bible Translators, or Wycliffe USA, has a new CEO and president. Dr. John Chesnut, who has worked within the organization for the past 18 years, officially took over the leadership role at the start of April.

Chesnut came into the position following a year-long journey of prayer and extensive interviews. The installation of Wycliffe’s new leader took place on October 10.

As CEO and President, Chesnut’s vision for the ministry is to get the Bible translated into every living language.

“Well, one of the things, as we look ahead, is there’s still some 2,100 language communities out there with no Scripture at all. And so, that is our primary focus as we move forward. How might we see, through partnerships and working with other ministries and churches around the world, how can we see God’s Word come to those communities,” Chesnut says.

“My hope and desire is that every language coming around the world would have access to the full context or all of scripture in a language or form that they can understand.”
