International Ministry

WDA’s International Training Team ministers by teaching seminars around the world.  These seminars are taught to pastors, women’s ministry leaders and Bible college students to benefit local churches and mission agencies.  The team trains leaders in the Five Phases of Growth for groups as well as personal discipleship.  Issues that hinder individual growth are also addressed.

By training leaders to minister to their own people, many of the cultural barriers to the Gospel are eliminated.  WDA is active in Mexico, South America, Central America, Asia and Africa.
