2019 was a very BIG Year for the World Mission Centre, and we couldn't have done it without the Lord's Grace, leading and immense support of love, encouragement and prayers from our family, friends and supporters.

We'd like to share some Highlights as we Reflect back on 2019.
Ministry Reflections

  • We Celebrated the 30th Anniversary of World Mission Centre! (WMC) . In March 1989, Willie and Lydia in obedience to the call on their lives, put a desk in their lounge and founded the WMC. Thirty years later WMC works in 95 countries around the world, living out its call to provoke, enthuse and inspire the Body of Christ to the task of world evangelization. Through one of our projects, the Live School, we have and are training over 22,000 ordinary people as church planters. This number is growing monthly as we continue to add schools to our 2,300 church partnerships.
  • The Running with Horses Conference hosted in South Africa. Over 450 key church and missions leaders from 38 countries gathered in Pretoria, South Africa in July 2019 for the first Running With Horses event. There is an acceleration in the Kingdom of God, especially in the more difficult countries. Some of our brothers and sisters from these places shared what God is doing in and how Live School is being used to equip a new missions force. The conference focused on the visible Kingdom, The Importance of the Word, The remaining task, just to mention a few. The conference ended with the transition of the leadership of WMC.

  • The Transition of the WMC Leadership. WMC has transitioned organizationally from the concept of a leader with a team to a team with a leader. WMC now has an International Leadership Team and this team is now being led by William & Shirley Crew. At the Running With Horses Conference William's Parents, Willie and Lydia Crew who founded WMC 30 years ago handed over the leadership mantle to William and Shirley. It needs to be made clear, Willie and Lydia have not retired. They are still overseeing a few regions and will now be international ambassadors for WMC.
  • Ongoing translations and development. In 2019 we started the translation of the Live School into Mongolian and we are well underway in the process. We plan to launch this version of the Live School in September of 2020.
The result of the RWH conference has reverberated across many nations as delegates returned back to their countries inspired by God and ready to put their hearts and souls into completing the remaining task. You can view some of the sessions from the Running With Horses conference on our Youtube channel and watching this short video clip.

Looking Ahead to 2020

Entering 2020 we are humbly aware that we are in a new season of WMC and we look toward the future with great excitemen t.

  • Running with Horses (RWH) 2020. (INDIA // SIBERIA [RUSSIA] // KENYA. As a result of the exciting outcomes and renewed vision from the International RWH 2019 conference in South Africa, various regions have asked to run regional conferences. We are excited to announce 3 conferences this coming year. (India – March, Siberia – October, Kenya – November)
  • Telling The Story. The heart of the media department is to tell what God is doing around the world. In the West we are often unaware of the acceleration in Gods kingdom, especially in developing countries. There are so many exciting stories that need to be told and we plan to take two story trips this year. The first will be to West Africa to witness the launching of the Live School in Hausa. The second will be to Siberia during which time we will also take part in the Siberian regional RWH conference.
  • Join us in the Field. The USA office will be visiting India, West Africa and Siberia this year and we would love to have you join us on these trips.There is limited space available so contact us soon for more information!

  • Ongoing translations and development. We will be completing and launching the Hausa translation of Live School in August and the Mongolian translation in October. We will also start the Mandarin translation this year.

  •  Live School Rollout. Our International Leadership team plan to train and start an additional 1,200 Live Schools during 2020. These leaders will travel to over 40 countries this year to meet with Church pastors, build relationships, excite and inspire churches to missions and train 1,200 facilitators to run the new schools.
Prayer Requests

  • Wisdom for the International Leadership team. Pray that God would give William and Shirley vision and wisdom as they lead the team.
  • Faithful monthly supporters for the USA office that will relieve the burden of fundraising and free us to fulfill the role of WMC leaders.
  • Protection over our leaders, their travels, relationships and marriages.
  • Full-time technical and media staff needed in the USA Office to take William’s place so that he can transition into full-time leadership. 
  • That the Lord will give us joy in this New Season of Transition and Acceleration.
As a team, we Humbly take up the task of Leading the World Mission Centre into 2020. We Honor Willie and Lydia Crew for the sacrifices and victories they have brought the WMC through in the last 30 years.

We are so amazed at what the Lord has done all over the world and
we want to be obedient, rise up and “run with the horses”.

Thank you so much for your friendship, love and support.
Merry Christmas and Wishing you, your family and
friends a Blessed 2020!
