Ministry Partner: Miska Wilhelmsson

Tampere, Finland

Miska and Alison Wilhelmsson

Miska grew up in Vaasa (Finland), and became a believer at the age of 18. Soon after, in 2008, he moved to Tampere (Finland) to be a part of the fellowship at International Baptist Church (IBC). While serving at IBC, Miska's desire for pastoral ministry and the church's recognition of that became clearer. After meeting his wife Alison (from England), and living in Wales (UK) for two years, they were finally able to come and attend The Master's Seminary in 2014. Coming to TMS was a dream come true. Miska is now the first Finnish graduate of TMS and, Lord willing, not the last.

Now after graduating with his M.Div., Miska and Alison (together with their small boys, Jeremiah and Simeon) have returned to Finland for gospel ministry.

The Wilhelmsson's returned to Tampere (Finland) in July 2017. Miska will then begin serving in pastoral ministry at his home church (IBC Tampere) alongside Baptist Missionary Pastor Tom Ruhkala, who founded IBC and will have completed 38 years of church planting ministry in Tampere before retiring and returning to the United States in the summer of 2018. Due to challenges of ministry in Finland and a low number of church members, IBC Tampere is not yet a fully self-sustaining church, and therefore unable to financially support a pastor. Thankfully the church is able to cover all the meeting place costs.

Ministry goals

  • To serve in pastoral ministry at International Baptist Church of Tampere.
  • To help in publishing biblically sound material in Finnish.
  • To be investing in the training of national pastors in Finland, with the possibility of starting a training center for pastoral training.
