World Missions Ministerial Association (WMMA) is a global network of Five-Fold Ministers, Churches and Organizations established under the corporate umbrella of Veronica Johnson Ministries a duly recognized 501 C (3) nonprofit religious organization and evangelistic association registered in the State of Alabama. WMMA is established in the USA, West Africa and is also a registered society in Kenya, Nairobi (East Africa). We provide spiritual covering, Ministerial Credentials, Education, Empowerment, Kingdom Accountability and Relationships to Churches, Ministries, Ministers and Schools within the association. We are progressively moving towards humanitarian efforts and economic development in the USA and around the world. It is our mission is to further the cause of Jesus Christ and to develop a means for that cause to be fulfilled through each member.
Care for Leaders: Nurturing and Pastoral
Pastors and ministers have needs just as every other growing believer in the church does. Those who invest their lives in caring for others in the local church also need a pastor and the care given by spiritual shepherds. By nurturing, WMMA is structured to promote healthy relationships and provide spiritual covering. For Pastors, we provide spiritual mentoring, counsel, encouragement, wisdom, and godly support.
Many leaders are crying out for practical ways to be accountable in their lives and ministries. While there are many beneficial methods for accountability to occur, we believe that this association can provide mutual accountability through covenant relationships.
Often leaders are overworked, abused, and overcome by the pressures of ministry and the wounds of people. Ministry designed to restore leaders to lives of wholeness is a mission of WMMA. We will provide Bible-based restoration for spiritual leaders who have fallen into sin or immoral behavior with the passion to see them fully and completely restored.
A healthy church will GROW! Therefore, we are striving to provide churches and their spiritual leadership with every available resource to increase the five-fold ministry gifts within their congregations and ministries that will promote strength and unity. Biblical courses of study and other resources through WMMA will be made available to leaders and churches to assess, evaluate, and advise ministries. We will work with our members to promote "Kingdom Building" churches and ministries.
Ministers and church leaders have the same need for fellowship on a spiritually mature level as do other believers, but it is often difficult to network on a local level. A network of spiritual leaders is the perfect avenue for wholesome relationships to be established. WMMA goal is to bring churches and ministries together in a spirit of fellowship and unity. The vision of WMMA is to bring people together of all races and Christian cultures through the Network fellowship conferences, crusades and regional meetings to network and share in cooperative efforts. We believe that the Internet will be a powerful tool of ministry to build relationships and networking. Through the WMMA website we will provide our associates with ministry resources, interactive forums and other avenues of ministry of support.

and Distant Learning Bible School Satellite Training
It is our goal to provide sound Biblical instruction for advancement and excellence in ministry. We are committed to "Touching Nations and Evangelizing the World" by equipping and training men and women called into the Gospel ministry to serve in EXCELLENCE in their area of ministry, such as Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, Teacher, Evangelist, Missionary, Church Administration, Church Educator, Church Counselor and Church Worker.
Biblical Standards and Values: Gifts Ministry
The operation of the five-fold ministry gifts described in Ephesians 4:11 is imperative for spiritual maturity. Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are essential for equipping God's people for the work of ministry.
Five-Fold Team Ministry
We believe that five-fold teams are the right approach to ministry. We are committed to the success of one another and place a higher value on team accomplishments than on individual accomplishments.
WMMA is committed to upholding the association through strategic prayer.
We consider healthy, authentic kingdom relationships to be indispensable for spiritual leaders. Our network will be based on the foundation of interpersonal relationships that the Holy Spirit inspires and nurtures. We maintain that an effective organization must emerge from personal relationships. We will encourage the practical relational designs of mentoring, coaching and discipleship.
We recognize servant leadership, integrity, and a godly character as the standard for all ministry and leadership. We believe that while talents and gifts are useful, they must function from a foundation of godly character and a desire to live consecrated lives.
Efforts and Economic Development
We endeavor to not only provide spiritual covering, encouragement, counsel, accountability and godly support, but to also provide humanitarian aid or support (e.g. provision of food, clothing, orphanage support and shelter), economic development and training for these services.
We do ask that those who hold credentials to remit a monthly "free will" member support offering to help cover the costs of administration, missions, resources and member support efforts. If your church or ministry have taken full Spiritual Covering under WMMA support through tithing and or offerings are expected. We do ask that those who tithe to the fellowship to submit a minimum of 5% or a monthly support offering. It is both biblical and of necessity. This does not replace your obligation to support your local church or ministry.
