Audio Scripture Ministries provides the Bible in audio so everyone will have the opportunity to hear God’s Word in their own heart language.
Our commitment to the Great Commission directs us to serve others as we:
- • Partner with churches, ministries, and individuals to create and distribute audio Scripture and Bible engagement resources to communicate the Good News of Jesus.
- • Facilitate production of audio recordings of the Bible in each language needed by people groups around the world.
- • Distribute, either directly or through other ministries, suitably formatted Scripture recordings among both non-Christians and Christians, whether living in their homelands or elsewhere.
- • Encourage and assist in the development of projects for audio Scripture recording and distribution through local leaders and other ministries.
How will we reach the millions of oral learners who are waiting to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ?
Audio Bibles are one powerful tool we can use to provide God’s Word in a way that engages almost anyone, from members of non-literate cultures halfway across the world to immigrants and the visually-impaired right here in the United States.
ASM helps build and equip networks of nationals, audio technicians, churches, missionaries, and others to reach oral learners around the world.
ASM recruits native speakers and records them reading Scripture in the languages of people groups still waiting to hear God’s Word.
ASM distributes players in India, Mexico, and Mozambique, and in many other places through local partners or missionaries.
In 1967, Dr. Ron Beery founded ASM (then called Portable Recording Ministries) with the mission to take God’s Word in audio to those who had not yet heard it. Over the past 51 years, ASM has sought to adapt and use new technology and to continue to connect people to God’s Word.

Board of Directors
Oral communicator: A person who learns or processes information by spoken rather than literate means. Some oral communicators are so out of necessity because they cannot read or read with understanding. Other oral communicators can read with understanding and write, but they prefer non-print forms of communication.
Oral learner: A person whose mental framework is primarily influenced by spoken rather than literate forms of communication and who therefore learns primarily or exclusively by speech, song, etc.
