My wife and I recently had the privilege of attending a world missions conference in San Bernardino, California. One hundred nations were represented by the 170 in attendance — men and women who are taking the International School of Ministry (ISOM) to the far reaches of our planet. The late, famed evangelist T.L. Osborn has said of this ministry, "As far as I know, the development of this Curriculum is the most important thing happening on the earth for the Kingdom of God today."
Founded by a South African evangelist, Rev. Dr. Berin Gilfillan, ISOM is a five-trimester video Bible- and ministry-training curriculum that is presently in use in 141 countries and in over 75 languages [2017 update]. It is currently being shown in more than 12,000 training sites worldwide in a dedicated effort to reach the world for Jesus Christ.
The twofold aim of the video curriculum is to enable every local church of any size to become (1) a ministry training center and (2) a church planting center. And that vision is being realized! Hundreds of thousands of believers have taken the curriculum, and many thousands of new church plantings have occurred as a result in dozens of nations.
Church pastors and leaders, please hear my heartfelt appeal. The ISOM is a wonderful resource, a ministry tool, for you to use in your local church. The video lessons are taught by experts in their field — men like Dr. Jack Hayford, German evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, Dr. A.L. Gill, and Pastor John Bevere. Your people will be edified, they will be strengthened in their faith, they will be equipped for the Lord's work, and they will be strongly motivated to participate in the Great Commission.
Details of this remarkable ministry-training resource and its reach-the-world strategy and vision can be seen at www.isom.org. The inclusion of this training in your church can be a life-changing addition to your ministry.
Sincerely in Jesus Christ,
Pastor Jim Feeney, Ph.D.
