WordWise Word School was established in Belgium in 1998 by Pastors Johan & Gerda du Toit.

Thirty–four students representing thirteen different nationalities attended our first class, of whom 21 graduated. A large number of them entered the fivefold ministry full time.


WordWise has since relocated to Canada, with satellite schools in Kenya and South Africa (Hartbeespoort and a new location in Shoshanguve, planted by Pastor André Coetzee), where our courses are offered in a classroom setting. A new school is in the planning for Malawi early 2020.

Through distance education, WordWise makes training for ministry accessible in many countries of the world.

Our correspondence school reaches into nations and areas where believers have no possibility to go to a Bible School. Some of those areas have no electricity or proper means of communication, but we reach them there and equip them with knowledge of the Word to help them become effective in their ministries. Some of the nations that we serve are caught up in war and endure harsh persecution, yet our brothers and sisters continue to labour for the Lord with fruit following.

We are very proud of our correspondence students who study on their own without the encouragement of a support group. It is always harder to exercise the required discipline when you don’t have to commit to regular classes. Most of our correspondence students do not speak English as a first language, which adds to their challenges, especially when it comes to writing their assignments yet the desire to learn and grow pushes them past those challenges.

The school continues to expand abroad as more nations come on board. We are excited as we continue to penetrate nations where Christians are a rare find. The Word of God is powerful to change nations as we are faithful to do our part by taking the gospel there.
