GRN produces and provides audio evangelism messages

Who We Are and Spiritual Requirements

GRN is a non-profit Christian religious organization that tells the story of Jesus in every language around the world. Our vision is that people might hear and understand God’s Word in their heart language, especially those who are oral communicators and those who do not have Scriptures in a form they can access. Our Mission is to partner with the Church, to effectively communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ by means of culturally appropriate audio and audio-visual materials in every language.

GRN seeks to recruit, select, and equip individuals to become more involved—or mobilized—for work in the U.S. to support the worldwide recording mission. Staff members are disciples of Jesus Christ who make disciples through their personal interactions and through their work.

Each staff member is expected:

  • To be a committed follower of Jesus Christ, who believes that salvation cannot happen apart from faith in Christ’s atonement on the cross, by grace alone becoming born again, thus beginning a personal relationship with Christ, the resurrected Son of God.
  • To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others and to lead daily office prayer times as assigned.
  • To be a Christian whose lifestyle is consistent with Christian principles, is compatible with GRN’s Statement of Faith and committed to the fulfillment of the Great Commission.
  • To effectively communicate personal faith and apply biblical principles and convictions in the effectiveness of assigned departments and collaborating with the leadership team as a co-laborer in promoting the mission and vision of GRN.
  • To have a strong sense of calling to the ministry of Global Recordings Network.
  • To regularly attend and be engaged in a Bible-believing evangelical local church.
  • To be knowledgeable about the Word of God and passionate about sharing his word with the world.
  • To adhere to the policies and procedures of GRN.
