Tyndale Center in Pictures 2018

December 28, 2018

Reflecting back on the year at the Tyndale Center for Bible Translation at The Master’s Seminary, we are so thankful for the Lord’s faithfulness.  Here are some photos that capture what made this year so memorable.

For almost 40 years, The Master’s Seminary has diligently trained pastors and missionaries for Gospel ministry.  In 2017, the seminary established the Tyndale Center for Bible Translation in response to the global need for Bible translation.


The Master’s Seminary is committed to the Word of God and its proclamation among the nations.  The Tyndale Center is a natural overflow of these commitments.


On March 6, 2018, the Tyndale Center was officially launched, and Dr. MacArthur announced the seminary’s commitment to train pastor-translators.


In June 2018, Dr. Aaron Shryock, director of the Tyndale Center, traveled to Cameroon with a group of students: Sung Park, Jack Smith, and Taylor Berghuis (left-to-right). They met with a number of missionaries, including Drew Maust (far right), a translation consultant in West Africa.


On August 23, 2018, Dave Brunn, long-time missionary and Bible translator with Ethnos 360, shared about the relationship between church planting and translation with a group of seminary students.


Dr. Shryock taught courses in translation and exegesis as part of the M.Div. program.


Dave Brunn interacted with students and staff about his time translating the Bible in Papua New Guinea.


Students and staff enjoyed an event on the topic of Bible translation hosted by the Tyndale Center.


On September 18, 2018, Dr. Stephen Lonetti gave a message in honor of the late Dr. Robert L. Thomas.  He spoke about his time as a church planter and Bible translator among the Taliabo people in Indonesia.


Drs. Osborne and Barrick talk at a Tyndale Center event.


Dr. Lonetti shared his heart for Bible translation at a Q&A session following the time in chapel.


Dr. Shryock and student Bo Zhou analyze the translation of Daniel 2:37 in Mandarin.


Looking forward to 2019, we are excited about what the Lord will do at the Tyndale Center.  Please join us in praying for the spread of the Gospel to every “tribe and tongue and people and nation” (Rev. 5:9).
