How We Transform Communities
World Impact empowers urban leaders and partners with local churches to reach their cities with the Gospel.
The world is urbanizing. More people live in urban areas than ever before. World Impact is committed to strengthening the urban church for strategic gospel transformation. This is the perfect moment in history for extending the truth, love, grace, and justice of God in under-resourced communities. With staff and partners, World Impact gives God glory and delights in Him through ministry that empowers the urban poor.
Urban Church Planting
The Evangel School of Urban Church Planting trains Christian workers to plant healthy churches among the urban poor. This training is designed specifically to equip teams to reach under-resourced communities.
The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) equips and resources urban leaders. TUMI provides affordable and accessible seminary training for men and women in the urban context.
Through our Onesimus Project, World Impact trains local urban church workers and leaders toward success in discipling those who have been incarcerated. We also offer church-based seminary for those who are behind bars.
Trauma Healing equips urban ministry workers and leaders to facilitate and host Scripture-based healing groups. Some participants will choose to become trained to lead their own healing groups — virally expanding the ministry.
World Impact believes in resourcing urban leaders through concise, practical, and hands-on training at women’s and men’s retreats.
We believe the hope of the Gospel in our cities lies with training, equipping and empowering Kingdom-minded leaders.
The Gospel is already alive and active in our cities. We simply want to work with local church leaders.
We have an incredible opportunity to grow the reach of the Gospel through new disciples who have direct ties to their country of origin.
