Wycliffe Bible Translators Launch New #WHYBible Campaign to Reach Millennial Christians


Update: A previous version of this story from CBN News referred to the #WHYBible Campaign as an “app.” It was recently brought to our attention that the story has been corrected by CBN, and the updated version is below.

Wycliffe Bible Translators have launched a new campaign to get young people reading the Bible again.

Millennial’s rating of churches and other religious organizations has dipped 18 percent since 2010.

Fifty-five percent now say churches have a positive impact on the country compared with five years ago, when nearly three-quarters (73 percent) said this.

Wycliffe Bible Translators want to show young people why the Bible is important with their #WhyBible campaign.
