What Bible translation does your ministry prefer?

We prefer to teach from the New Living Translation.  We prefer this translation because of its common everyday English reading style and ease of understanding across multiple age groups.  We however encourage those serious about understanding the deep meanings of the Bible's content to explore multiple translations when trying to find what a singular verse or chapter is saying versus what is printed literally. We provide New Living Translation Bibles for free to those in our service area (as available).
