Contribute to Global Transformation
In addition to our core ministry offerings, we have identified specific projects in various parts of the world that will advance leadership development in strategic, innovative ways.
Ukraine – Seminary Leaders Retreat
The ongoing war in Ukraine has taken a considerable toll on the lives of countless refugees and internally displaced persons. Within this context, the network of Ukrainian seminaries affiliated with United World Mission’s Overseas Council (OC) ministry has been actively engaged in providing crucial support to over 400,000 war refugees and others in need.
Now, with most seminaries winding down their direct assistance for refugees and returning to their core educational mission, the Lord is leading UWM to intentionally respond to the felt needs of those who have given sacrificially to others for months on end, and in so doing, to help them in the process of rebuilding theological education in Ukraine.
Women in Theological Education – Africa
United World Mission seeks to make theological education and ministry training accessible to the high number of pastors and leaders who are outside the reach of current programs. Research indicates that 9 out of 10 men and women currently leading churches in the Majority world lack formal theological education. This project addresses the lack of well-equipped women leaders in the African Church who typically face even more obstacles to formal training than do men. While there are several organizations supporting theological education generally, women-to-women mentoring programs are a novelty on the continent – especially in theological education.
