Bible and theology courses

Hi! I am Alissa Wied. My family and I live in the United States of America. I am excited to study Bible and theology courses at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about studying the Bible online, Click Here).

My Journey

Married for over 20 years, my husband and I have two adult daughters. They grew up on the mission field in Puebla, Mexico, where we lived for almost five years. My husband and I met in college, and both have degrees in Graphic Design and Communication. We currently call Wisconsin home. Like most missionaries, “home” is a very fluid term.

While living in Mexico, we experienced rough physical and spiritual attacks. But in 2018, after many years of prayer, God healed the three of us, my daughters and me, in a single day. God healed us of celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis, food allergies, and more. On that day, we experienced God’s love, grace, and power more personally and intimately than ever. You can watch our testimony here:

Our Ministry

We’re independent stateside missionaries through Modern Day Missions with our ministry Outward Heart. We are a unique blend of creative and administrative professionals who work very well as a team. With BA degrees in Design and Marketing from UW-Green Bay, we bring a hands-on proficiency in various disciplines, including layout, design, photography, and writing.

Outward Heart was founded on the idea that incredible “heart” work is happening in tons of ministries. However, too often, that work never makes it to the public’s eye. This fact minimizes the glory God receives through testimonies and more. It also limits the ability of people to grasp the vision, share in the passion, and participate.

However, these things are not the fault of passionate founders and leaders of ministries. It is simply that they are not marketers, may not have the know-how to increase or refine their presence, or perhaps they simply don’t understand the importance that outward appearance has on their calling. Therefore, we give them the know-how to accomplish these things.

Bible and Theology Courses at CLI

I love learning. Lately, I’ve wanted to dig academically into Bible and theology courses. Thankfully, God led me to CLI. Now I am on a study journey at CLI. I can serve others in our community and beyond with greater confidence and understanding of what the Bible says and how it applies to our lives today.
