Music In World Culture’s (MIWC) passion and calling is to empower all nations and cultures to worship Christ. Nations are transformed when people are transformed, but only Christ has the power to transform lives. At MIWC, we believe that biblical training in worship and the use of music and music education in the church are primary means of preparing the local church to reach communities and countries for Jesus Christ. MIWC currently supports ongoing projects in Ukraine, Russia, Germany, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Georgia and Jamaica.
