About Us

Called to Live Out Jesus’ Commands


World Ministries assists in fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission by championing globally the cause of making multiplying disciples, by equipping nationals to lead church planting movements of disciple-making churches, and by creatively expressing Jesus’ love and compassion to the unreached everywhere.

The passion of World Ministries is to serve churches, pastors, and Christian leaders around the world by coaching them to penetrate culture, lead men and women to Christ, and help these believers grow to maturity.

We are a highly relational ministry where people are valued above programs and where all with whom we come in contact are treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

Who We Are


Celebrating our 20th year!

World Ministries began in December 1999 when a group of Christian businessmen volunteered to stand behind Dr. Dave Hine and his life-long passion for making disciples by founding World Ministries. Our passion is to help pastors in America and around the world intensify outreach, disciple-making, and church multiplication. For 20 years our impact has grown in numerous countries of Asia and Africa, as our team of experienced U.S. based leaders have trained nationals everywhere we go to take responsibility for reaching their people and their nations.

We specialize in helping churches become intentional about making disciples. Our vision is to see movements of disciple-making churches multiplied globally. Through training national leaders who multiply churches generation after generation we have seen more than 4000 churches planted during these years… all to the Glory of our Lord!

Our “World Intent” initiative works with churches and other mission organizations to strengthen outreach and disciple-making through creative 21st century strategies. Our “Grace Community Empowerment” partner is a prime example of our compassion based outreaches to reach the poorest of the poor and to plant churches among devastated communities.

Our global leadership team members each have fruitful ministries that have touched thousands of lives. We have a passion and vision to help reach the world, a heart to serve Christ's church in the U.S. and overseas, and a constantly growing track record of impact. Many who know us well call us an incredibly “lean and mean” ministry. Our impact far exceeds what is expected from a team of our size with a limited budget. It is a privilege to serve the Lord and to see Him work!

Now we believe it is His time for us to further expand our staff and impact, and we are excited about our next decade!

Statement of Faith


We Believe:

A. That the Scriptures (the Bible), both Old and New Testament, are the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings. The Bible is the revelation of God's will for salvation of men and women and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and practice.

B. In one God who is creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

C. That Jesus Christ is true God and true man. He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

D. That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age, to convict men and women, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.

E. That mankind was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

F. That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe. Only those who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus, become children of God.

G. In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and separation from God.

Nicky is the Founder and Executive Director of ELI Asia, The Evangelical Leadership Institute of Asia. Nicky and his wife, Sally, and a team of dedicated educators work tirelessly to provide Biblical and theological training for pastors in the provinces of the Philippines where seminaries and Bible colleges are absent. As Dr. Joya states, ” We are a small band of biblical, theological and ministerial educators whose mission is to provide quality teaching materials and practical training for pastors, elders and other church leaders right where they are so they don’t have to leave their respective places of ministry. Such an arrangement is intentionally designed to make them fulfill their practical requirements for theological training, each with his or her own unique ministry context in view. It also relieves them of additional expenses like transportation, food and lodging, considerations students should face had they been enrolled in a seminary campus miles away from their places of origin.”

Nicky and Sally have been friends and partners with World Ministries since 2004. Those interested in supporting their ministry may donate through World Ministries on the “GIVE” page of our website.
