Impact ministries serve the purpose of building sudden, positive awareness in a particular community or region regarding the Gospel. These are ministries of “beginnings”–making initial contact with a village, building structures, initializing new programs, and so forth.
Regional Impact Ministry:
The primary purpose of WMI is to positively affect entire regions with the Gospel. The Regional Impact Ministry (RIM) is one cog in the machine of making that mission possible. RIM works with local church leaders to carry out various “compassion ministries” that effectively serve communities in the name of Jesus. Supported projects include building, starting, and training staff for orphanages, schools, tutoring programs, prison ministries, food pantries, soup kitchens, wells and water-purification, etc. WMI works hard to partner with ministries that are most likely to have the greatest positive impact on the surrounding region in the name of Jesus.
A significant part of WMI’s mission is to share the Gospel throughout the world. This requires travel, equipment, promotional material, and so forth. Money designated for this program helps cover costs associated with sending individuals and teams to minister the Gospel in distant locations. The primary focus of the Fire-Starter Ministry is to win souls through the Good News of Jesus Christ, ministering His “Full Gospel” of forgiveness, healing, and deliverance in culturally-meaningful ways.
Transformational ministries are long-term endeavors that affect individual lives and entire communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. WMI supports ministries and ministers anywhere in the world who have surrendered their lives to actively reaching and influencing their community with the Gospel.
Orphanage and School Support:
WMI supports programs that minister God’s love to children—specifically in impoverished regions throughout the world. Support goes to Christian-based organizations (whether or not they were originally built by WMI) that minister with a Spirit-filled emphasis and have a notably positive spiritual influence in their sphere of influence. Priority is granted to those programs where WMI has an ongoing relationship of providing training and encouragement to staff and volunteers.
Indigenous Ministry Support:
WMI provides relational and financial support to indigenous ministries that have demonstrated self-sustainability and regional influence. Local Christian leaders (willing to remain accountable to WMI) who have given of themselves to serve the Kingdom of God are eligible for funds only if it is determined that such support would enhance their ministry rather than distract from it. Supported ministries agree with the WMI Statement of Faith and minister positive transformation to entire communities. Examples include churches, ministers, and organizations that care for the needy (widows, street children, the elderly, etc.) by meeting both physical and spiritual needs in the name of Jesus .
Pastors and leaders need Bibles in their own language. Funds designated for literature distribution will serve to purchase Bibles and other ministry-related texts for distribution to pastors and leaders around the world whose ministries have an official relationship with WMI.
Ministries focused on multiplication are designed to train, equip, and send out Spirit-filled Christian leaders to multiply the Kingdom of God through service, love, preaching, and meaningful ministry.
Multiplication Ministry (M2)
The Multiplication Ministry (M2) is developed to facilitate culturally-relevant church growth throughout the world. Funds are used to (1) develop and produce training materials for various categories of church planting locations such as urban, rural, developing nations, restricted/hostile nations, etc.; (2) develop and produce training materials for various forms of ministry such as house-churches, bush-churches, street evangelism, training schools, compassion ministries, etc.; (3) build church meeting structures that can double as pastor-training schools in developing nations. This ministry provides accountability and encouragement to church planters and other indigenous leaders throughout the world.
