WDA Annual Report 2016 David Parfitt Special Message

After 43 years, our mission is STILL the SAME: To serve the church, worldwide, by developing Christlike character in people and equipping them to disciple others according to the pattern Jesus used to train his disciples.

This past year we lived this mission like never before! I continue to be awestruck as I witness the many ways God is working with and through WDA. Around the world there is a thirst for discipleship; disciple building is in great demand. I am grateful for the many people who are joining with us to provide a progressive and intentional discipleship plan that truly delivers believers who become mature in Christ!

2016 marked a year of tremendous growth, both in the U.S. and the world over. Our teams provided discipleship training to 27 international sites, training over 2,500 leaders who in turn trained and discipled over 170,000 people!

Domestically, we continue to build new partnerships with churches and ministry leaders. We are working with and through the local church to deliver Restoring Your Heart, Cornerstone, Life Coaching and Leadership Development ministries. These ministries are finding their way to Christian schools, men’s and women’s recovery centers, Sunday school classes, discipleship groups and community groups.

Our publishing arm has delivered dozens of new titles and many in multiple languages. We even established a partnership with the Philippine Bible Society for them to design and publish materials for the Philippines! We are also working with translators in Romania, Africa, India, Brazil, Mexico, and the Philippines.

There is much to be thankful for and all of us at WDA know that without you, our faithful and dedicated supporters, we would not be able to make the impact that we do. May God bless you greatly for your love, care, prayers and financial support!

It is our desire that the following pages serve to provide evidence of the many good works in which you play a vital role! Please take a few minutes to enjoy and reflect on what God is doing. Already this year, WDA teams have ministered to Ethiopia, Malawi, and the Philippines. I am very excited to see what God will do in the rest of 2017.

Until next time…

Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever. (II Peter 3:18)

Together in His service,

DAVID PARFITT

Executive Vice President/Chief Operations Officer Worldwide Discipleship Association, Inc.
