Meet WIM


Since its ori­gin among the indige­nous peo­ples of Mexico in 1981, World Indigenous Missions has sent ordi­nary peo­ple around the world for one pur­pose: to dis­ci­ple the nations to reach the world. “Indigenous” is a big word with a sim­ple def­i­n­i­tion. It means home­grown or exist­ing nat­u­rally in its own area. When it comes to cross-cultural min­istry, we believe this means equip­ping local work­ers to influ­ence their own peo­ple with God’s love and truth.

The face of mis­sions has changed dras­ti­cally over the past cen­tury. Today, it can resem­ble any­thing from lead­ing wor­ship to teach­ing English. It can be plant­ing churches, car­ing for orphans, con­duct­ing “busi­ness as mis­sion,” devel­op­ing cre­ative media or train­ing lead­ers. Whether you’ve got two weeks or twenty years, WIM will equip you to obey the Great Commission. We com­pre­hen­sively train mis­sion­ar­ies with three goals in mind:

EVANGELIZE the lost with the gospel of Jesus Christ

ESTABLISH indige­nous churches where there are none

EQUIP and serve lead­ers

Why not become a part of the fam­ily?

WIM is a close-knit fam­ily of indi­vid­u­als with big dreams for the nations. We oper­ate through per­sonal rela­tion­ships with our mem­bers.

We are a fam­ily. When asked what WIM is, any one of our mis­sion­ar­ies will tell you that it is a fam­ily. As a core value, com­mit­ted rela­tion­ships are the heart of our orga­ni­za­tion. WIM can help its mem­bers to be the most effec­tive mis­sion­ar­ies pos­si­ble, enabling us to accom­plish much more together as a fam­ily than would be pos­si­ble as indi­vid­u­als.

We will serve you.

The direc­tors, the office staff, the inter­ces­sors and the ambas­sadors of WIM are here for the pur­pose of serv­ing the needs of the mis­sion­ary. People are often sur­prised by the amount of admin­is­tra­tion required to func­tion effec­tively as a mis­sion­ary. From newslet­ters to tech­nol­ogy to donor rela­tions we are here to ease your admin­is­tra­tive headaches. We also serve you by pro­vid­ing excel­lent finan­cial account­ing and report­ing to your donors for all dona­tions received. We serve you so you can serve the nations.

We will train you.

At WIM we under­stand that liv­ing cross-culturally can be a daunt­ing task. Ministering is even harder. That is why we will train you to do both. Under the tute­lage of an expe­ri­enced mis­sion­ary, you will learn over a two year period the tools nec­es­sary to be an effec­tive cross-cultural min­is­ter.

We will care for you.

The WIM lead­er­ship cares about your spir­i­tual and emo­tional health. We will visit you reg­u­larly while you are on the field to encour­age and strengthen you in mind and spirit. For many, our lead­ers have brought spe­cific insight to prob­lems they are fac­ing. However, for most, the lead­ers are that wel­come ear that will laugh and cry with you. WIM also believes in the power of the fam­ily to encour­age and heal. That is why reg­u­lar con­fer­ences are held to bring the whole WIM fam­ily together for mutual encour­age­ment. Most impor­tantly, our office staff will pray for you daily.

We are an extended fam­ily.

Arriving on the mis­sion field is not just an end to a chal­leng­ing prepa­ra­tion period. It is the begin­ning of a new min­istry. WIM has devel­oped a net­work of inter­ces­sors that will pray for your needs. Our ambas­sador pro­gram exists to help you meet your min­istry needs while on the field or in the U.S.
