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. WMI is part of the PTS Neighborhood Collaborative


During the 2023 W. Don McClure Lecture in World Mission and Evangelism, Dr. Jonathan Tran presented the lecture "The Plenteous Harvest: How Identity Politics is Killing the Church, and How Theology Might Save Us Yet".

This lecture offers an account of race and racism based on identity politics, offers an alternative account based on political economy, and relates the political economy of racial capitalism to a rival political economy, God’s “deep economy” incarnated in the local church's liberative politics.
