"Send Me!" World Mission Initiative celebrates 20 years!

Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!” Isaiah 6:8

In 20 years of ministry, World Mission Initiative has sent over 300 students from Pittsburgh Seminary all around the globe to participate in God’s mission. Their experiences of worship, service, and partnership with Christians in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean stretch their faith and give them new vision for the Church’s call as the sent people of God. These same students go on to lead churches and ministries with a meaningful connection and deeper commitment to God’s global mission.

All students at Pittsburgh Seminary who respond to God’s call by saying “Send me!” receive scholarship support of up to $1,000 for their first WMI mission trip. These scholarships send students who lack sufficient funds for travel and participation in global mission partnerships.

A generous group of WMI supporters has provided a $2000 matching gift to encourage others to support the "Send Me!" campaign. Your gift of $20 will be matched, dollar for dollar.

As World Mission Initiative celebrates 20 years of sending students into the world, please consider making a gift in support of WMI student scholarships, so that current and future students at Pittsburgh Seminary may continue to grow in Christian leadership and service through these life-changing and ministry-shaping experiences!

Choose a giving level


Encourage Me!

Students say “Send me!” to a World Mission Initiative trip opportunity because they are encouraged by a classmate, professor, WMI staff, and especially the financial support they are promised. Thank you for strengthening this promise through your gift of support!


Equip Me!

Students gather for WMI’s pre-trip preparation sessions three times before they leave for peoples and places completely new to them. Your “$20-for-20” anniversary gift equips students to go into the world with spiritual readiness and cross-cultural awareness.


Pack Me!

WMI encourages students to “pack light” by leaving behind both items and attitudes that might hinder their witness. Your gift resources students with what they really need both in their suitcase and also in their heart—humility, faith, and love—as they participate in God’s mission.


Pray for Me!

WMI sends students with a strong foundation of prayer and with confidence in the promise of the Holy Spirit’s presence. Your gift of support for students’ travel costs gives tangible testimony to the strong prayer support that surrounds them as well.


Mobilize Me!

Students are mobilized into God’s mission in a lasting way when they form relationships, as happens through Christian partners around the globe who welcome WMI trip participants to join them in ministry. Your gift gives students the opportunity to form lasting relationships with church leaders around the world.


Send Me!

Your “Send me!” gift encourages, equips, packs, prays, and mobilizes a student well on his or her way to participating in what Jesus Christ is up to in another part of God’s world! Thank you for sending a student from PTS on a life-changing, ministry-shaping World Mission Initiative trip!
