Leadership Seminars

Explosive church growth is happening in more and more developing nations. To seize these opportunities, World Outreach, through its diverse leadership and ministry training programmes, is making a major contribution to raise up biblically-trained, equipped and mature, church leaders.

2 Timothy 2:2 "and the things you have heard... entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others". This scripture is a type of benchmark for the different World Outreach ministries around the world that are focused on teaching, training and equipping church leaders.

Despite the well-known quote "He or she is a born leader", by far the majority of people are not born leaders. They have to apply themselves to seeking God and learning exemplary leadership skills, based on Bible principles and character. This takes a lot of hard work, personal commitment and is a lifetime pursuit.

Since its early beginnings, one of the main foundational ministry strengths and focuses of World Outreach has been the development of church leaders.

Generation Ministries

In 1990 when Peter van der Westhuyzen was in Korea, he was deeply touched by the Lord as he prayed. The Lord said "Ask me what you want". Before he could stop to think, Peter replied "Lord, give me 100,000 children". Peter and Bev his wife, and their team are committed to making this vision a reality.

Generation Ministries focuses solely on the needs of children in the developing world. Nearly three out of four conversions (75%) take place in the 4 to 14 age group - it's a vital mission field.

Humanitarian & Disaster Relief

Feeding The Unfed - A Need That Cannot Be Ignored

Unlike the United Nations or other better-known relief organizations, World Outreach is not necessarily a well-funded or well-equipped humanitarian Mission. Yet our personnel on different continents are regularly involved in helping feed hungry children – because the need is right there before us! World Outreach believes God has strategically placed many of our missionaries for such a time as this.

This ocean of misery in many developing countries is huge. However every act of kindness makes life for many that much more bearable.

  • World statistics on the plight of humanity reveal that more than half of the world’s children go to bed hungry each night.

  • One in every five people in developing nations is hungry.

  • The majority of children in developing nations exist on less than one meal a day, and even what they do get to eat is extremely poor in nutritional value.

  • 80% of the world’s poorest people live in the 10/40 window region.

In Madagascar, Pierre Wuytack says, “We never know in advance how many people will turn up at the designated food distribution centre, but each needy child receives the same amount as others. On this island nation the World Outreach feeding program is often the only help that poor families receive. Somehow God seems to multiply the food! A real bonus in expressing such love is that families have come to accept Christ as a result of this basic and simple act of kindness.”

In Mozambique the World Outreach milk feeding and health education program has literally saved hundreds of young lives. Because of fears and traditions children are often denied basic available nutritious foods because of superstitious beliefs! For example, there are those that believe that if a child eats the yoke of an egg it will get yellow fever. Our World Outreach education program endeavours to address such myths.

In West Africa, helping meet the most obvious need, ie. supplying basic food for undernourished village children, can be the entry point to eventually be invited to share the Gospel to a whole village. In greater Asia the different World Outreach orphanages and hostels that care for hundreds of children every day not only helps meet a vital need among the young people but also gives favour to share the love of God to neighbours and nearby villages.

World Outreach cannot ignore the effects that such poverty in having upon helpless children and families throughout Africa and Asia. We represent an outstanding King and Kingdom! No better network exists than that of the Body of Christ to reveal the heart of God to the under-privileged.

Concern for the unfed is at the heart of the Gospel. Helping feed the unfed should not be seen as a distraction to declaring the Gospel, rather it is part and parcel of the holistic message that Christians should be recognized for, an integral part of our Christian walk.

World Outreach invites you to partner with us in helping feed the unfed. Whatever you contribute will not only be appreciated – it will be used to make a difference to desperate lives. Please help! Thank you!

The 'Silhouetted Ones'

The Silhouetted OnesFigures silhouetted against the background. In World Outreach, that is how we depict our friends who live out their faith in places where they cannot bring attention to themselves, where traditional missionaries are not welcomed.

Many of us in the Mission know some of them personally. We do not print their names, or locations, or specific duties. But we pray for them and give money to support them as they quietly serve the people they have been called to love.

Pierre & Stella Wuytack, Madagascar

Pierre grew up in Belgium and Stella in Canada where they both spoke both French and English.  Together they lived in Granby, 50 miles from Montreal, where Pierre pastored a church, and then pioneered a second church in Montreal, in an area of destitution, alcoholism and drug addiction. In the first year, the church grew to over 100, with signs and wonders, healings, with drug addicts set free instantly, marriages restored, and mafia people transformed by the power of God.

In 1978 Pierre and Stella applied to join World Outreach and initially moved to Kenya.

Leaving Kenya, after an interlude in senior management in an international construction equipment company, in 1997 Pierre felt to offer himself without reserve to the service of God. He resigned from his job on December 1st, and in February 1998, was approached by World Outreach to go to Madagascar, an island off the east coast of Africa.

Christian Discipleship Centre, Bangladesh

In 1979 Biswanath and Vijaya Chowdhuri founded the Christian Discipleship Centre (CDC) in Dhaka, Bangladesh, a full time residential, non denominational Christian teaching centre for men and women.

Begun in very challenging and difficult circumstances, CDC is a strategic ministry established to train and equip nationals to provide crucial and urgently needed human resources for the church and the community. Always very practically based, additional subjects included leadership, children’s ministry, primary school teaching, adult literacy, basic health care, and income generation skills.

The only residential institute in the country, CDC trains both husbands and wives together. Of the 621 graduates serving mostly in rural areas all over the country, 196 are women, and over 500 churches have been planted by ex-CDC students, including many medical clinics, schools for poor children, as well as village literacy programmes, and other community services. More than 1,372 have graduated from various short up-skill type courses conducted at CDC.

Today, graduates are involved in church planting and are making a major contribution to church growth in Bangladesh. With the experience of the CDC leadership, its resources and alumni network, CDC is strategically placed for significant growth in the nation.

Tawangmangu Bible School, Central Java

During its almost 40 years of existence, Tawangmangu Bible College has seen more than 3,500 graduates pass through its gates. Between 75 to 80% are active in full-time church ministry today, not only throughout the archipelago of Indonesia but also in Australia and Europe.

Some ex-students are serving in the remote provinces of Irian, Sumatra, and Kalimantan (Borneo) with one now pastoring a church of 6,000 that he planted. Others can be found serving in the densely populated island of Java with over 120 million people.

A number of Tawangmangu graduates have started grade schools connected to their churches, whilst others have begun various social ministries such as drug rehabilitation centres, orphanages, homes for unmarried mothers and for the mentally ill. Most caught the vision to do this whilst studying at Tawangmangu.

Tawangmangu graduates are now involved in running the recently established Mount Hope training centre in the economically depressed province of West Kalimantan. This extension ministry of Tawangmangu is focusing particularly on the indigenous Dayak tribal people groups within which there are over 400 dialects. The goal is to eventually provide opportunities for education at all levels and skill learning programmes whilst at the same time discipling students in the Word of God and conducting church planting programmes in the remote villages from where they came.

Mount Hope Training Centre, West Kalimantan

Mount Hope Training Centre is a Foundation established in 1998 to help the poor amongst the Dayak Tribal Peoples, both practically and spiritually.  The focus is to train young people in a comprehensive manner.

The vision for the project includes:  A children’s home, kindergarten, primary school, high school, medical clinic, Bible school, hospital and university.

In time Vocational Training will equip villagers with skills useful for the cities such as carpentry, plumbing, brick making and bricklaying, sewing, English and computer.

The first ten buildings are now in place and a further building in progress on a 17 hectare site.  An additional 20 hectares of land needs to be purchased for expanding the range of vegetables to meet the consumption needs of the centre, and cash crops that will in time help cover the Ministry’s operating expenses.
