Frequently Asked Questions: Frequently Asked Questions about the organisation and ministry of the Global Recordings Network

How did the vision start?: "Joy felt was a deep sense of disappointment and sorrow at having to leave her beloved converts behind - people who in most cases were unable to read or write and relied on a verbal message to bring them to a saving knowledge of Christ."

Do you communicate the gospel effectively?: Everyone planning an evangelism outreach, first needs to determine where on Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs the target group is.

Empower Local Churches: An outreach team visits a small village in a remote area. There's no local pastor; 90% of the people are non-literate and cannot read. Tracts and the Bible in written form mean nothing to them.

The Challenge: You want to share the Word of God with somebody else in his/her own language, but he/she cannot read the Bible or a tract. Here's what to do.

The True Cost of a Cassette: What is the true cost of making a recording of the Gospel for non-literate tribal people ... a cassette that proclaims the Lordship of Christ?

Some Difficulities of Cross-Cultural and Cross-Linguistic Evangelism: This is a memo on the problems of determining the language groups that need evangelism. These notes from a Paul Hattaway lecture during the recent recordist training provided much of the material.
