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. 

Upcoming World Mission Initiative Events


The past two years have brought a seismic shift in many areas that touch each of us and our churches: a global pandemic that profoundly disrupted not just health systems and supply chains, but the stuff that binds us together in community: who we spend time with, how close we get to each other, how we protect each other’s health. The murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May 2020, caused a growing number of Americans to see our nation’s legacy of racial injustice for the first time; the rise of Christian Nationalism has laid bare what to many Americans was an increasingly dangerous conflation of faith and power.

What does it mean to engage in God’s mission of love, peace, and justice through the major disruptions of our day? How can we lead in mission in new ways amidst the disruption we’ve experienced in the past two years? Join us Oct. 7-8, 2022, for our online and in-person McClure Lecture and WMI Conference with keynoter the Rev. Eugene Cho and workshop leaders. Learn more.
