Most Christians around the world do not have trained spiritual leaders.

Globally, 85% of pastors lack theological training. The lack of trained leaders is a global crisis. Most Christians today are vulnerable to false teaching and manipulation with no shepherds to lead them into an abundant life in Jesus Christ.

WHMI is working to change that...

Through our Bible Institute, we are catalyzing a global movement. WHMI is empowering thousands of pastors and church leaders around the world with essential theological training, using a New Testament model found in 2 Timothy 2:2. This training gives leaders the tools they need to shepherd God's people and train other leaders.

...by sowing sustainable leadership

WHMI is confronting the greatest obstacle to meeting the challenge: the lack of access to training. When indigenous leaders are trained, they can be coached and mentored to train others. This is a game changer capable of providing enormous capacity to address the global problem. We have witnessed first-hand that trained pastors lead healthy churches and healthy churches can transform entire communities with the power of the gospel.

"Teaching them whatever I have commanded you" are among Jesus' last words (Matthew 28:20). Most of the world's pastors (85%) cannot teach others because they have never been taught. WHMI is working to change that.

WHMI is a community of committed Christians focused on raising up those who are able to obey Jesus' command to teach "all I have commanded." We are working to make theological training accessible to every pastor and ministry leader in the world.

WHMI is a global family.  You can read our stories and see photos and videos of our family in action.
