World Mission Centre was founded in 1989 by Willie and Lydia Crew. Today, they serve as the international team leaders of the WMC leadership team. The leadership team consists of seven men who have all served the organization in various capacities, and many, for more than 15 years. This team and their respective families, in humble obedience to the call of missions, have laid down their dreams, comforts, and safety to work full time in the missions world. Every day we are blessed to see how God is using this team around the world to provoke, inspire, equip, and release leaders to the task of finishing the great commission.
The Live School project has seen a huge acceleration in the last year. Our leadership team is constantly traveling around the world to encourage team members and Live School students in the 65 countries we work in, while also engaging with new pastors and churches in those countries. Our staff members keep the wheels turning in the administrative offices.

World Mission Centre is called to provoke, enthuse and inspire the body of Christ in order that it my be released to the task of world evangelization. To help the churches (especially in South Africa) be released into missions, we found it helpful to develop ministry models that churches could adopt and begin their work in world evangelization. These models were developed and tested within the organization first and then made available for churches to use. Some of these projects were:
