In an attempt to fulfill the Great Commission with a sense of urgency, the Spoken Worldwide Orality Coaching Program (OCP) establishes purposeful partnerships with both US-based and indigenous churches and organizations that desire to minister to the two-thirds of the world that does not read. Our role is that of a supporting partner, where we provide the training and resources needed for these local partners to serve as the primary contact with their communities.
The coaching partnerships we form allow other ministries to learn Spoken’s method of delivering Truth to oral learners. Each individualized OCP is built around the unique needs and current resources of the ministry.​

Orality Coaching

Our training methodology includes the following Orality practices:
  • Dynamic Storytelling
  • Collaborative Discovery
  • Facilitation for Transformation
  • Worldview Considerations
  • Empowering and Equipping
  • Converting written content to oral methods
Contextualizing content to meet each community’s specific needs is a labor of love, and multi-year commitments are often required to produce content, train, and disciple within these partnerships.
A wonderful advantage of the Coaching Program is that we are infusing the best practices and principles of Orality into our partners’ organizations. This allows them to take advantage of all that Spoken has to offer, while applying it to their own ministry goals and dreams.

The Orality Coaching Program is how we TEACH others

to MULTIPLY disciples.

Impact Stories

"I have gone to Bible seminary, but it has not been as useful in ministering to my village. The stories on the other hand are so practical and effective! They are an easy way to communicate with the people in my community. They understand them, and they love to hear their own proverbs and sayings. I have been to other Bible story trainings, but this Orality method shows us how to choose the right Bible story for the specific situation the people are experiencing. I am very excited about what we have learned."
"I am so glad you have come. This training is very helpful. We have been looking for a way to reach our community with the gospel and this is just what we need. We are so excited to know how to find the right Bible story and approach with the problems we see in the community."
“Three years after an Orality Coaching training session in Northern Ghana, dozens of women continue to gather each week to learn additional stories, create new songs, and practice older stories. Then, they fan out to other villages, sharing what they’ve learned and leading others to Christ. A district leader has said that they had to stop church planting in the past because they ran out of literate pastors, but that is no longer an issue. The women have helped make sure that literacy is no longer a barrier for God’s Word to be shared!”

Give Where Needed Most


“A changed world begins with us … and a changed us begins when we pray.” –Eugene Peterson
We often take it for granted, but prayer is powerful and always accessible. Deciding to stop and pray for ourselves or others immediately reminds us that there is more going on than what we see. It is the simplest and most powerful way for us to recognize that God is real and at work in the world.
Sign up for monthly updates and prayer requests from the Spoken team regarding specific programs, people and issues around the world. When you get them, remember that God is King and ask Him to bring about lasting change for His glory and our joy.


Are you interested in getting involved with Spoken Worldwide?
Sometimes we have events or tasks that require a few extra hands, and we would love your help. Another great way to get involved is to share our mission with others that may be interested in fulfilling the Great Commission. Some ways you can do that are by inviting Spoken to share our story with your church missions pastor, at your Bible study, at a dinner group, or by hosting an in-home event. We love sharing a bite to eat while sharing how we can reach the unreached together!
