More about Bruce Wilkinson:
He was born in New Jersey and graduated from North-eastern Bible College (B.A. and Th. B.). He also studied at the Dallas Theological Seminary (Th. M.) and at the Western Conservative Baptist Seminary (D.D.). Early on, Bruce served as a college professor at Multnomah School of the Bible in Portland, Oregon.

Bruce served as the publisher and executive editor of ten monthly magazines, with more than 120 million copies distributed. He is the author of the outlines of the books of the Bible for the best-selling Open Bible and has served as the executive editor of three Bibles.

In 1976, Bruce launched Walk Thru the Bible. He has trained 100,000 professional teachers in Teaching for Life Change and is a trainer of coaches in the Dream Giver methodology. He launched and led the global initiative WorldTeach, which has recruited and trained more than 30 000 indigenous leaders in 83 nations to conduct life skills courses. Bruce also produced a motion picture about AIDS called Beat the Drum, which has been seen in more than 100 nations and has garnered 30 international awards.

After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Wilkinson travelled to Russia to teach in conjunction with the presentation of the Jesus Film. Wilkinson served five years as chairman of CoMission, an innovative education ministry in Russia.

In 2002, Bruce moved with his family to South Africa and started an organization called Dream for Africa. In that, Bruce launched Heart for Africa, which mobilized First World volunteers to plant more than 500 000 backyard vegetable gardens for orphans and the hungry. He also launched a movement to recruit more than 1 000 college students from 11 nations to conduct AIDS training in high schools. He led major tribal and racial and religious reconciliation conferences in Uganda, Namibia and South Africa.

Wilkinson founded Teach Every Nation (TEN) in 2013 as the culmination of four decades of ‘best practices’ learned from his teaching, training, and international leadership and ministry. TEN was formed to provide “innovative, practical and culturally relevant training” for pastors and leaders in the Global South (e.g. areas of Africa, Asia, and South/Central America). Training is provided through technology such as satellite simulcasts, as well as in-person courses on TEN’s 2,500-acre training campus located on a wild animal reserve in the Waterberg Biosphere of northern South Africa and now also with the Bible on Wheels Project. Tens of thousands of TEN students have been trained in 100 nations. Training is done in English, French, Portuguese, Arabic and Persian languages.

Known for his expertise in fundraising principles as well as his public speaking skills, Wilkinson has raised over $300,000,000 for other ministries, including colleges, seminaries, mission groups, Bible distribution, evangelism, orphan work, food distribution and more. He serves as the Chairman of the Board of The Exponential Group.
