Global Missions

The Master’s Seminary has graduates serving in more than 40 countries—preaching the Gospel, strengthening indigenous churches, and training local pastors. In this way, we seek to fulfill the mandate of 2 Timothy 2:2, to entrust the truth to faithful men who are able to teach others also.

Teams of TMS alumni have established pastoral training centers around the world where national church leaders can be educated in their home countries. Today there are nearly 20 training centers on five continents, with more than 2,500 current students and roughly 4,000 graduates.

Inerrancy Demands Commitment to Global Missions

Our commitment to global missions is rooted in our view of Scripture and a desire to see every tongue, tribe, and nation reached with the eternal truth concerning our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Even those men who do not personally endeavor to go overseas with the Gospel are equipped to faithfully lead their local churches in supporting missionary efforts in the most impactful ways.

Many in the evangelical world have influenced western churches to use highly contextualized methods to reach other nations and cultures. What often results is greater emphasis on a social gospel and the “human flourishing” of a people group rather than matters of eternal significance.

The Master’s Seminary has trained men to study and expound the Scriptures accurately, to establish local churches on the foundation of the Word of God, and to disciple others to do likewise. Loving congregations do much to provide for the needs of their people, but they do so always with their priorities based upon Scripture and based upon the primacy of the Gospel. Since the establishment of the seminary, alumni have ministered overseas with training and discipleship models that have served to advance biblical ministry wherever they have been sent.

Today, the need is greater than ever for men to be trained as expositors, faithfully ministering in even the most challenging contexts, with knowledge of the truth and a message of supreme hope.
