What was born years ago, in 1992, in the heart of one man, to create an umbrella for Christian ministries and Christian ministers to keep their right as legal marriage officers when they move out of the mainline churches, later became a non profit organization in 2002 and developed into a theological seminary providing foundational Scriptural and theological teachings to upcoming evangelists and theological students in Southern Africa. (Registered as a Non Profit Organization in 2002 nr. 017-206 NPO with the Department of Social Development, South Africa).
In his own words: “Before we established an International University we were in business and ministry ourselves. We soon understood that there are many challenges in life to overcome. Our research was focused on community empowerment, theology and management.
This inspired us to develop a marketing plan, combined with Biblical principles and common sense to enrich, not only a few, but our students, candidates, believers and the university for the purpose of evangelizing the world. Jesus Christ said this gospel must be preached, (published) to all nations and then the end will come...
We need billions of preachers and teachers and other ministries to accomplish this. How do we train them within a short time? Through multiplication... 7 loaves of bread fed more than 4000 people… Forgive 7 times 7 within one day… 777 the number of perfection.”
His dream and vision was to provide sound Biblical theological studies to upcoming Christian leaders at as low a financial cost as possible, especially to those from the continent of Africa but also globally virtually via internet.
In the process he invited partners from around the world to help in Africa to offer affordable degree courses to disadvantaged communities.
Students from the USA and the UK were invited to sponsor a student in Africa. Bible schools, churches and business were invited to join as partners and receive discount for enrollment of more than 5 students. Government agencies were also welcomed to enroll staff from their departments.
Government Education was invited to apply for International Accreditation if they were willing to adjust to international standards and globalization without economic and cultural boundaries. NWMD International University believed globalization to be an all-encompassing phenomenon with implications in every field of study. Red tape and restrictions won't meet the need of the suffering world at all. What was needed was to open up education and development to everyone now!

NEW WORLD MISSION DUNAMIS INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY
An international university based in Africa
Global Education as never before.
NWMD International University often said that they were a seminary for your head, your heart, and your hands. They might be a new online University, but for more than 20 years New World Mission Dunamis University has worked to make sure this is not just a slogan but also a guiding commitment. A seminary education is not just simply personal, spiritual or intellectual development. They believe a degree from NWMD University to be more than an open door to career advancement; it is preparation for ministry. It is not just about you; it is about God and what God is doing through the church. They believe you don't pursue a seminary degree to improve your status but to be God's servant. Seminary education is not an end in itself but a means to an end of engaging this culture with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
NWMD University is open to men and women who want to prepare to be servants of Jesus Christ in the many and varied settings to which God calls them. But they are quite intentional about preparing people for ministry, formal or informal, professional or lay. NWMD University is an institution of the church and its mission. Specifically, NWMD University is a seminary for the Evangelical, Pentecostal- Charismatic part of the Body of Christ, but they intend to serve the whole Body or Church of God and, in fact, have students and faculties from many different Christian traditions and denominations. They share with the whole Church the mission of reaching all men and women with the gospel.
New World Mission Dunamis International University was born in the heart of the man, Louis de Bruin. And through his passionate work over these more than 18 years, he created a network of ministries, churches, colleges, theological seminaries and universities who trusted the integrity and Biblical soundness of the studies done at this online university to obtain a theological diploma or degree.
For more than 4 years NWMD International University now has been the online platform and vehicle for hundreds of theological students and Christian leaders in all spheres of ministry, especially from the continent of Africa, to obtain the necessary knowledge and know-how to minister more effectively to their congregations, ministerial groups and surrounding communities at a very low financial cost.
