Half the World is Under 25
The eighth United Bible Societies World Assembly was held in September in South Korea. It was the occasion to welcome the Rev. Dr. Robert Cunville as the new UBS President, who will serve until the next World Assembly gathering in Brazil 2016.
According to United Nations statistics, half the world's population is under 25, and that demographic was reflected at this event. Twenty International Youth Assembly delegates representing 17 countries, and another 20 from the host country, were on hand to provide their perspective.
American Bible Society presented a Bible Search tool that enables website visitors to find Scriptures in a variety of translations. At the Assembly, ABS proposed digitizing the Scriptures in as many languages as have translations and making them accessible in a Bible Search tool accessible to all Bible Societies.
Thanks to the support of our faithful financial partners, American Bible Society has been engaging people with the life-changing message of God’s Word for more than 200 years.
