What We Do

A Strategic Focus

MDI wants to change the world. To do so, we focus on leaders — local and international ministry leaders already established within a culture. Such leaders are strategically poised to influence the major social issues facing their nations.

However, these leaders often face serious hardship and isolation from resources.

By pouring into these leaders, we have seen God's transforming power in their lives individually, through their families, with their ministry teams and in the lives of the people they reach. We help build ministries that will sustain growth for years to come.
