Summer@CanIL 2020 is now fully online
Sunday 14 June - Friday 14 August, 2020
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.

CanIL is offering online and live-stream video learning for all summer courses.

You can take the Scripture Engagement course through live-streaming, from wherever you are in the world. This course will be offered on Monday, Wednesday and labs on Fridays through live-stream Zoom class sessions. Check it out on the Summer Timetable found here: Summer Courses. Note that this is in Pacific time.

All courses that are taken in the summer as a part of the Scripture Engagement training track will also be offered by online or live-streaming delivery.

The application process remains the same - a simple online form with some follow-up documentation requirements. Apply here: www.canil.ca/apply
