The Visible Story

Telling the story of the Bible in Indonesia

Created for urban slums and rural villages, where levels of poverty and illiteracy are high, The Visible Story opens the Bible’s message in a fresh and natural way.

The Visible Story was created for evangelists and mission workers in Indonesia – people who have a passion to share Jesus and to make the gospel story visible in Indonesia’s rural villages, urban slums, and busy city streets.

We resource and train these mission workers to share the Bible’s life words with their community, helping people see themselves as part of God’s story. The programme has been specially designed to use with remote communities that have low literacy, high poverty and a lack of technology.

Working through our partners, the workers (many of them Indonesian Bible college students) are trained in “engaged storytelling” and equipped to start faith conversations. They use a colourful flipchart to share four of Jesus’ parables, which have been carefully selected for their resonance with Indonesian culture and everyday life.
