OUR MISSION AND WORK
Worldviews International is a non-profit ministry based in Miami, Florida, but with worldwide outreach. Established as a means of extending and embodying the ministry of Dave and Pauline Seivright, Worldviews International has as its chief end the emphasizing of the gospel of Jesus Christ as “objective truth” and the God of the Bible as “ultimate reality” and therefore as culturally relevant and personally engaging.
Dave had the privilege of being personally mentored by the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer, and also by Dr. J. I. Packer. Dave was also mentored by the teachings and writings of the late Dr. John Stott. Dave attempts to pass on to others the things he learned from these great men of God.
Worldviews International continues to play a significant role in helping believers, and young professionals and businessmen in particular, to lovingly engage in apologetics and evangelistic outreach by “making disciples” of Jesus Christ, growing in the faith, and living by faith by applying the Christian Worldview beyond the walls of the church in all spheres of life by being “salt and light” to our culture and the world.

“THE MIAMI FOUR” – The founders of WVI are (L-R:) Max Price, Dave Seivright, Jorge Reynardus, and Phil Nicholas. Dave led these men to Our Lord, and discipled them. All of us are attorneys! Jay, assisted by Phil and Max and several others from our ministry are involved in leading a men’s BSF Bible study each week of about 600 men.
WHY IS YOUR WORLDVIEW IMPORTANT?
“Whether we realize it or not, all of us possess a worldview. We make one of two basic assumptions. We view the universe as an accident or we assume an intelligence beyond the universe who gives the universe order, and for some of us, meaning to life. One’s worldview, or how one answers the basic questions concerning meaning, values, purpose, identity, motivation and destiny, influences not only who we are, but how we live our lives” – Dr. Armand Nicholi, Harvard University professor and author of “The Question of God”.
“Know the truth and the truth shall set you free” – Jesus Christ.
“The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is intellectually credible and existentially satisfying” – Tim Keller.
WHY IS MENTORING AND DISCIPLESHIP IMPORTANT?
“My calling of mentoring and discipling young professionals gives me great joy and fulfillment. God has produced astonishing results in the lives of those discipled. These men make good husbands, fathers, and providers, and also continue a chain of similarly teaching and serving others here and overseas (particularly in Germany), and helping (particularly in Miami and Haiti) those who need practical help, financial, and otherwise”. – Dave Seivright

HOW DO WE COMMUNICATE OUR MESSAGE?
In a context of a community of loving personal relationships, Dave disciples a culturally and racially diverse group of men and women In Miami, other parts of the USA, Germany, Jamaica, and around the world. Dave has visited five continents. These folks in turn disciple others. (2 Timothy 2:2)
Dave’s activities include: mentoring young professional men and women, one-on-one appointments, Bible Studies, Discussion and Prayer Groups, leading Retreats and Seminars, and providing Leadership Training. We follow the strategy of “Win-Build-Send” based on the model of Jesus Himself, resulting in “Spiritual Multiplication” as the most effective way of spreading the Gospel of Jesus Our Lord.
