World Mission Initiative of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is dedicated to developing mission vision, nurturing missionary vocations, and cultivating missional congregations by helping Christians understand how God is at work in the world and how they can share in that work. WMI offers resources to serve congregations and students.

World Mission Initiative's main vision and purpose is mission mobilization! We hope to lead the church to rediscover its purpose, calling, and missional center.

Over the years, WMI has hosted 10 biennial conferences, countless workshops and global mission guests, and more than 300 seminary students into faith-stretching and ministry-shaping global mission experiences.


Have a story to tell?

WMI is looking for stories of congregations who have over time developed noteworthy practices that may be encouraging/instructive for other congregations to consider. If you have a story and would like to share click here.

Jesus Christ and the 'Dividing Wall': Race and God's Mission

Save the Date! Oct. 7, 14, 21, and 28, 2020, at 7:30 p.m (ET)

Mission matters. Race matters. Are you or your church looking for resources on how to have deep conversations on race? As our nation continues to grapple with the evil of racism, we as Christians and churches need to have a truthful conversation with one another on racial justice as we engage in God's mission. Join us for this virtual McClure Lectures and WMI Month of Mission Series, where we will gather online for four Wednesday evenings to explore issues of racial justice with world-class speakers. This series is a combination of our planned WMI Conference and our annual McClure Lecture in World Mission and Evangelism. Featured speakers include Brenda Salter McNeil, Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, and David Campt. Learn more about the event.
