Hosana/Faith Comes by Hearing

The group has a four-star Charity Navigator Rating and is a part of the Forum of Bible Agencies International. The president is organizer Gerald (Jerry) Jackson.

The ministry, which started under the name “Hosanna”, was created in 1972 by Jerry and his wife Annette as a library that loaned tapes with Christian themes and concepts offered by various instructors. The notion for making audio Bibles came from a missionary visit of theirs to a Hopi Indian reservation, where they saw that Bibles translated into the Hopi language weren’t being used because of enduring illiteracy. It came into the international marketplace in 1986, when the ministry started working with many Haitian missionaries to tape a Creole translation of the Bible. From 1986 on, the ministry used donations and revenues to tape translations of the Bible into various different languages. In 1991, its 1st international recording office was established in Ghana. The recordings utilize theatrical effects, like music and sound effects. The organization partnered with numerous Bible distributors and translators.

Faith Comes by Hearing has Bible recordings in over 1,000 languages voiced by over five billion people. Over 400 million folks in practically every country have been touched via their vast range of programs and their audio Bibles.

The Bible should be limitless and accessible just like God and His Word. Whether it’s free Bible apps to Audio Bible proclaimers and podcasts, our objective is to offer people around the world free access to God’s Word via audio Bibles in any translated language.
