President and Founder
WISDOM INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY began as a seminar series of thematic and doctrinal
studies presented monthly to the St. Louis Christian community in Spring 1984.
The response to those series was very enthusiastic and revealed the need and desire for
on-going instruction of its kind.
After much prayer and seeking God in that regard, it was determined that WISDOM
INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY should be founded and organized. Further, the institution is
primarily established to equip men and women for Deliverance Ministry through the
Impartation of the Life of Christ, to edify the Body of Christ, and Advance the Cause of the
WISDOM INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY was formally founded and organized February 8,
1989 in the City of St. Louis, MO. It is a Division of Word of Life Evangelistic Crusade, State
OBJECTIVES AND EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
WISDOM INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY purposes to prepare men and women, who are called
of God, to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the fullness of the Word. To
acquaint and inculcate with the laws and principles of spiritual warfare and the obligation
of Christian ministers toward advancing the Cause of the Throne, manifesting the
Kingdom of God, exalting the Living Christ, and throwing down the Kingdom of Darkness.
The successful graduate will, in turn, be versed in the full council of the oracles of God and
himself developed spiritually to minister the things committed to his spirit.
The approach to education is one of holistic involvement and structure. In particular, the
student will be addressed across the spectrum of the three types of teaching, viz.
Theoretical, demonstration, and conceptual methods. Consequently, a comprehensive
perspective of the material will be gained by the student.
And finally, the student will be given a distinct knowledge of his unique self and the context
of "knowledge" within Reality. In short, the educational philosophy of WISDOM INSTITUTE
UNIVERSITY is both holistic and contextual. The most important entity in the educational
process is the student.
WISDOM INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY espouses the fundamental position of Biblical faith.
We adhere to the plenary inspiration of the Bible AS the Word of God, NOT that the Bible
contains the Word of God. We hold the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant, and infallible self-
revelation of God and His Will to man, and is fully authoritative and comprehensive in all
matters of eternal and spiritual import.
WISDOM INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY adheres to the Tri-Unity of the Godhead and the distinct
presence of three Persons co-equal in omnipotence, omniscience, and omnipresence,
occupying the Throne of Heaven and expressing the One God.
WISDOM INSTITUTE UNIVERSITY further maintains the present day operation of the Holy
Spirit's manifestation of miraculous and supernatural works in the lives of born again spirit-
filled believers. And that the baptism with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4) is available and is a
must for all Christian ministers in this present age.
We believe the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His Virgin Birth, sinless life, miracles,
vicarious atonement for sin in His death on the cross, His bodily resurrection and
ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal and visible return to earth in
power and glory.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved unto the
resurrection of life and the lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
Any applicant on a first come basis shall be eligible to enroll in any of the individual elective
