We first began to be aware that the majority of the world, even when you got the Bible, couldn't read it. So we began to record it and that was when massive transformation happened.
—Morgan Jackson

Once Faith Comes By Hearing identified the barrier that having a Bible translated into a language only serves a small portion of the people that speak those languages, they took action.

He serves as Senior Vice President of Faith Comes By Hearing, where he’s worked for decades with partners to record Audio Bibles in the languages of the world.   Morgan is the son of Faith Comes By Hearing founders Jerry and Anet Jackson, and he learned from an early age the importance of uniting the Body of Christ and overcoming obstacles to share the Word of God. He has traveled to more than 80 countries so far to make that happen. Morgan has built life-long relationships with many other people in ministry and supporters who share the same passion for the Great Commission.   Morgan loves to tell stories—real-life stories from the field that help us get a glimpse of how lives are changed after the lost discover that God speaks their language.

If Morgan has a fishing pole in his hand, showing one of the grandchildren how to fish, it is a great day!
