Missions & Outreaches

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen       Matthew 28:19,20

 

The verses above are known as the Great Commission – the vision of the church, given by the Head of the church Himself. There can be no other vision, and nothing as important in the life of the church than these words of Jesus.

WordWise has always been involved in missions, both local and foreign. We have taken the gospel to more nations we can mention, and visited 17 nations in person to do exactly what Jesus told us to do. While our gifting is more in the area of teaching, we have seen people surrender their lives to the Lord everywhere we went.

Missions is the heartbeat of the church, and the very reason for our existence. Without a vibrant missions outreach, the church falls into a deadly routine of inward-looking programs.

Andrew Murray, in his book THE KEY TO THE MISSIONARY PROBLEM, wrote that every church, no matter how small, can have an international influence through foreign missions. This truth has become more powerful today, more than a hundred years after they were written. The internet opened wide doors for every Christian to take the gospel around the world without any cost to them. Social media, where people live these days is a mission field that is ready to receive the good news in a world that is falling apart.

Our Bible School, Wordwise Word School, has been teaching the Word to people FREE OF CHARGE wherever they are. Christian have been educated in the truth of the Word, and pastors and ministers raised; many churches have been planted and souls swept into God’s Kingdom by simply taking advantage of the wide open door given to us by the internet

May you be inspired to become a missionary today!

They joined a local ministerial group and pastored a church until her husband passed away in 2017. Her story is heart-wrenching – but through all the difficulties her faith in God remains unwavering.

Malawi - New Project

Pastor Johan visited Malawi in 2019 and saw the tremendous need for teaching there. WordWise will install a school on the ground and the budget for this endeavour is already met!  He planned to be in Malawi in February this year, but due to the Coronavirus the trip has been postponed. Watch this space for updates!

Belgium

Belgium is very close to our hearts! We’ve served the Lord in this nation for almost 9 years and Pastor Johan has been back to minister there almost every year since we left in 1999!

CHINA

Pastor Johan had to opportunity to visit China on three occasions. He spoke in government approved churches as well as underground churches.  Wonderful miracles of healing took place and many were saved and baptized in the Holy Spirit.
