CanIL West location at Trinity Western University in Langley, near Vancouver, BC Canada
Sponsor: Canada Institute of Linguistics

The Canada Institute of Linguistics (CanIL) offers a Scripture Engagement training track with courses accepted by SIL and Wycliffe Bible Translators as preparation for cross-cultural service.

As a Scripture engagement worker, you assist Christian communities to strengthen the use of the local language by integrating Scripture into the local arts and culture, daily life and practice. You partner with local churches and community leaders to develop strategies for Scripture engagement, contextualizing its meaning through a variety of means including ethnomusicology, Bible storying, audio products, etc.

This Scripture Engagement Training Track is a 2-semester, 7-course program. It can be taken at the graduate or undergraduate level. It is designed to start in the 9-week, intensive Summer semester, and continue on through the Fall semester. The courses in the Scripture Engagement Training Track are: Language and Society, Phonetics, Scripture Engagement, Language and Culture Acquisition, Ethnography, Language Program Design and Management and Christian Missions.

The Scripture Engagement course itself is a 3-credit hour course taught in the Summer semester only. This course can be taken as a part of the training track or independently.
