What is Waymaker Institute?
Hear What Our Graduates Have To Say
Waymaker Institute has changed my view of ministry. It has prepared and equipped me to go after more within ministry than I would've ever thought possible.
The Waymaker Institute Internship has given me so many opportunities for growth and development unlike anywhere else. Being able to work with the Students Team has been life changing and has had such a huge impact on what I want to do for the rest of my life.
From the functions of a church staff to practicing spiritual disciplines, WMI has trained me in both knowledge and practice to deal with the harder parts of ministry that I had never learned in a classroom before. What started as my next step academically, has now become a milestone in my spiritual maturity.
