World Journalism Institute
P.O. Box 2330 (85 Tunnel Road)
Asheville, NC 28802
Contact: Robert Case
The World Journalism Institute is committed to the education of Christian journalists to be faithful to the biblical example of accurately reporting (e.g., being reliable eyewitnesses to) the work of God in His world today, before a watching humankind. WJI seeks to provide journalistic "salt" and "light" and "leaven" within the mainstream media as a manifestation of our Christian obligation for our society.
Strategy Statement: Through reading, writing, classroom instruction, reporting, field trips, and paid internships, WJI forms a cadre of tough-minded, warm-hearted, expertly trained Christian journalists for a new generation. We teach students to incorporate a Biblical grid through which to view the world theater of God's handiwork, and then we equip them professionally to report that divine handiwork to a needy public. Our programs are designed not only for aspiring journalists but also for working Christian journalists as a continuing educational outreach.
