Welcome to Joe Skelly's tape library. It is an extensive collection of Gospel, Ministry and Bible readings. These started on reel-to-reel, moving to cassette, to CD and now to MP3 recordings.

The Library contains over 14,000 messages. These have been built up since the Library was commenced in 1966 and are being continually added to.


The aim of the Library is to spread the Word of God worldwide and in so doing magnify the person of our Lord Jesus Christ. 


We would like you to enjoy the recordings and hope that these will be a blessing to you. There are a number of free messages in the sound downloads section. Feel free to make use of these.


Tape Teaching is a non-profit making organisation. Any money received goes to cover running costs. Should there be any money left over at the end of the year it goes to one of the Lord's Servants


We are still trying to release an extra free downloadable message every other day. We hope this will be a blessing to you.
