LOGOS LANGUAGE INSTITUTE INC. is an evangelistic ministry that equips Christians to witness and minister in foreign languages. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3), tax-exempt organization.
Our vision comes from Acts 1:8, to equip "witnesses . . . to the ends of the earth." We seek to help volunteers learn not just a foreign language but also how to share Christ and minister in that language.
In fulfillment of that vision, we have for more than thirty years distributed tens of thousands of language training programs in 21 languages. Our materials have been widely used in short-term missions, homeschooling, Christian schools, and churches reaching out to their own communities. We have also sent out hundreds of thousands of gospel tracts in 4 languages all over the U.S. and the world.
Our current dream is to play a significant role in reaching the Hispanic immigrant population currently residing in our country. We believe that God is moving powerfully in that community, and we want to be a big part! We appreciate your prayers and financial support.
LOGOS distributes self-study courses in various languages. Each Introductory Study Course includes a text containing several hundred everyday and witnessing phrases, ten scriptures, and a pronunciation MP3 file. This unique, spiritual approach to language learning is easy, fun and highly effective. Logos packets are being used successfully by believers all over the world.
We do not distribute Bibles. We recommend Multi-language Media. On their site you can purchase Bibles in any of 88 languages and other valuable resources for language missions.
