World Mission Initiative of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is dedicated to developing mission vision, nurturing missionary vocations, and cultivating missional congregations by equipping mission leaders to engage faithfully and effectively in God’s intercultural mission. WMI offers opportunities and resources to serve congregations and students. 

Graduate Certificate in Missional Leadership 

We are excited to report that seven mission leaders from all over the country are part our first cohort which launched in January 2023. This is a 16-month/four course hybrid program. Students will receive broad preparation in mission theology, intercultural communication, conflict resolution, and short-term mission trip leadership, and are therefore equipped for leadership in both global and local contexts. The program began with an online course—“Introduction to Missional Leadership and Evangelism”—and an in-person Gathering Retreat on the Seminary campus March 16-18. Learn more about the certificate program.
