World Bible Training Institute

Meet The Founder

Dr. Melva Henderson, a 2015 John Maxwell Top 100 National Leadership Award Nominee, is all about impacting and changing lives on a local, national and global level. She is President and founder of World Bible Training Institute, World Ministerial Alumni Association, and Vice President & Co-Pastor of World Outreach Center in Milwaukee WI, alongside her husband, Senior Pastor, Dr. Ervin “Skip” Henderson.

Melva travels internationally teaching and training individuals called to serve within a five-fold ministry capacity. In 2007, she established The Little Feet of Mexico and The Milwaukee Give, both humanitarian efforts aimed at providing food and clothing for those living in poverty. To help meet the financial responsibility of her efforts, in 2014, a group of individuals established The Melva Henderson Foundation. Through these mediums, Melva and a volunteer staff have been afforded the opportunity to feed and clothe more than 35,000 individuals.

Melva is State Director for The Daughters for Zion, a prayer network under Christians United for Israel (CUFI), host of Discipling the Nations radio and television broadcast aired locally/nationally on Joy 1340 and The Trinity Broadcasting Network (TBN). She is a frequent host of Praise the Lord and Joy in Our Town on TBN, columnist for Just Between Us, an international women’s magazine, and she is the author of the daily devotional, Fresh Baked Manna Volumes I and II, and the newly released Faith Life Book Series.

Dr. Melva Henderson is a 1992 graduate of Rhema Bible Training College. In June 2016, she received her Honorary Doctorate Degree from the School of Bible Theology Seminary & University. She is the mother of 6 and grandmother of 3.
