Institute of World Mission
Training Missionaries for the
Seventh-day Adventist Church since 1966
Traveling the world is exciting. When you cross cultural borders to work and witness for Christ, your life becomes an adventure! So let us help prepare you and your ministry for this experience. Since 1966 the Seventh-day Adventist Institute of World Mission has helped thousands of missionaries and others interested in cross-cultural ministry to deal effectively with the challenges of adapting to and working in new cultures. We are a service of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and are located at the world headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.
The Institute of World Mission fosters and facilitates the cross-cultural outreach of the Seventh-day Adventist world church. The Institute provides appropriate cross-cultural training for all full-time, short-term and volunteer workers, and facilitates their re-entry to the home field. The Institute cooperates with a tentmaker program (Global Partnerships) and further serves the church with consulting, training and strategic planning for the worldwide mission of the church.
