Our History

In 2015 leaders from ETEN, SIL, Wycliffe Global Alliance, and United Bible Societies birthed the vision for ProgressBible.  In 2016 ProgressBible built its first information service, and in 2017, its first Data Contributor agreement was signed. Since then ProgressBible has partnered with many additional organizations to provide information services with the purpose of informing ministry decision-makers and equipping communicators in the Great Commission.
