The World Mission Continuum Board of Directors
This organization was formed in 1979 by a small group of tenacious Canadians who set out to pioneer a practical and effective ministry in Asia. The founding directors were Harland Hendrickson, Bill Wiess, Norman Labrentz and Ray Bassett.
The current World Mission Continuum board of directors includes Eve Bassett, Wayne Boersma, Kent Prestage, Mervyn Mediwake, Norma Murdoch, Dave Meyers, Jonathan Krenz, Al Purvis.
World Mission Continuum is a registered Canadian charity. Our Canada Revenue Agency status can be viewed at: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tax/charities/menu-e.html. Search by BN/Registration Number: 889717047RR0001. Our partner offices are charities registered in their respective countries.
Each World Mission Continuum director is a local church pastor or ministry leader. Each one has personally invested in and visited the work in Asia. Together, they give oversight and accountability to this ministry.
The churches we have established across Asia fellowship and function together under the banner of Victory Asia (www.victoryasia.com). Victory Asia is a region of autonomous nations affiliated with Victory Churches International (www.victoryint.org).
Continuum Media is the communications department of World Mission Continuum, launched in 2003 to help communicate God’s Great Commission plan through TV, print and web.
7 Weeks in Asia is an extreme missions tour for youth from our sending nations. Each summer small groups of adventurers test their relationship with Jesus in face to face encounters with the greatest needs of our world.
Victory Asia Bible College is an international Bible college offering two-year diplomas and four-year Bachelor degrees while being trained in practical ministry together with other developing leaders from Asia and the west. This experience offers all the things a missionary could wish for; cross cultural training, relationships, and opportunities.
Church Planting is an ongoing activity of missionaries and nationals in a growing number of nations across Asia with a mandate to plant church planting movements in as many nations as possible.
El Shaddai Children’s Home II is the next generation of abandoned kids being raised up for a great ministry future.
World Mission Continuum offices are operated by ministry friends in whatever space is available to mobilize as many people as possible and increase financial resources into the mission field is an ongoing challenge for everyone involved.
Current home-front plans and activities include mobilizing more people and financial resources into Asia to facilitate the expansion of present work and the establishment of leadership training, church planting, and local church outreach ministries in several more nations.
In Thailand, we own and maintain two five-story buildings. The Victory Tower houses the ministry headquarters for Asia, the international Bible college, the Thailand ministry office, and our international church. The Lighthouse is a 5-story building that houses the Bible college students, single missionaries and visiting teams.
The Victory Tower is owned outright by World Ministry Foundation Thailand while the Lighthouse still challenges us with a mortgage of just under $150,000.
Thanks for your support!
Ministry Profile and Future
World Mission Continuum works with apostolic ministries to build God’s Kingdom in the nations of Asia. Father/son Kingdom relationships provide the accountability and empowerment needed to fulfill the Great Commission in a hostile world. This kingdom-minded attitude and the efficient connection between senders and goers has made World Mission Continuum and it’s affiliated ministries one of the most productive Kingdom endeavours in Asia.
Statement of Faith
- in the One true and living God, eternally existing and revealed to us as the Father, Creator of all things; the Son, Jesus Christ, God incarnate; and the Holy Spirit.
- in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, physical ascension, and His soon coming return to this earth in power and glory.
- the Holy Scriptures are the inspired and complete revelation of God's will concerning man's salvation.
- in water baptism as a public declaration that a believer has died with Christ and risen with Him to a new life of righteousness and authority.
- in the unity of all true believers as a universal body of Christ regardless of denominational affiliation.
- in the celebration of the Lord's supper as a remembrance of Jesus until He comes again.
- in the present day ministry of the Holy Spirit, including the baptism with the Holy Spirit, as an experience distinct from and following the new birth.
We believe that Jesus is building His church, not through studies and strategies, but by doubling His anointing through each successive generation – an ever-increasing release of power through the spiritual adoption of sons and daughters.
We believe that the Great Commission requires a life-long commitment to the process of adopting and training disciples in every nation, and requires the functioning together of all the ministry gifts that Jesus has entrusted to His church.
We believe that the Gospel has a global scope and transcends man-made borders and racial, cultural, and religious diversity. The Gospel is for every person, and the responsibility and sacrifice required to fulfil Jesus' commission is intended to be shared corporately among all believers.
