ATTENTION ISOM GRADUATES!

If you wish to receive a Bachelor--

Receive an accredited Diploma of Christian Ministry (60 credit award) through VIEN.

The Vision International Education Network has partnered with the International School of Ministry for over 10 years.  Dr. Berin Gilfillan, the founder of ISOM, is a Vision alumnus.

   

Plus any 5 Modules must be taken through ISOM:

Ministry Module †
This module is the recommended starting point for all those entering the Pathway to the Bachelors program. Without question, it contains some of the strongest materials that ISOM has yet produced, and brings forth vital messages from veteran teachers. Presented with practical wisdom and Spirit-led insight, topics include: how to prepare a sermon, hearing God’s voice, the role of prophecy and the prophet in the New Testament, and capturing the heart of God for ministry.
 
Miracle Living Module †
Dr. A.L. Gill, lovingly referred to by many as “Papa Gill”, has been a favorite teacher of ISOM students worldwide through his teaching on Supernatural Living in Trimester 1. The demand for more revelation teaching from him has been enormous – and now ISOM students get 32 new, dynamic sessions! In one course, God’s Provisions for Healing, he demonstrates how to pray for the sick in an extraordinary and practical way. This entire module is taught in Papa Gill’s vintage supernaturally-natural style.
 
WOW Essential Module †
Women of the World was originally developed to equip and train women around the world, but many of the courses were also relevant to men. Drawing from the two WOW modules, WOW Essential chooses content that is relevant both to men and women, including life-messages from Darlene Zschech, Joyce Meyer, Marilyn Hickey, Pat Harrison and Gloria Copeland.
The original WOW Volumes 1 & 2 are also eligible toward a degree, though students may complete either 1 and/or 2, or Essentials, but not all 3, since Essentials contains courses from both Vol. 1 and 2.
 
Understanding Islam Module ‡
Probably the greatest challenge facing Western Christianity and world missions is the rising influence of Islam. i2 Ministries, headed by Dr. Joshua Lingel, has produced an apologetics training resource for Christians to engage Muslims. Condensed from i2 Ministries’ own program with over 90 hours of university-level teaching, we have consolidated the top 10 teachers into a 30-session module. The goal is to equip Christians to effectively reach Muslims for Christ, providing understanding and answers for many common questions.
 
Nation-2-Nation Module ‡
This exciting module includes contributions from some of the finest instructors from Elim Bible Institute in Lima, New York. The courses bring forth revelation in the areas of marriage and the family, personal loss, victorious living, and a wonderful overview of the Book of Romans. World Impact Now (WIN) Ministries, headed by Brick Cliff, produced this series.
 
Messenger Module ‡
John Bevere is not only a best-selling, prolific author, but is also a well-respected teacher. His few courses in the ISOM Core have had a lasting effect on students worldwide, showing his heart to equip and train believers globally. When he heard about the Pathway to the Bachelors, he wanted to provide further impartation into ISOM students. This module includes 3 classic Bevere series: Extraordinary, Driven by Eternity and Breaking Intimidation. The teachings were produced by Bevere’s Messenger International ministry.
 
Messianic Module ‡
It is highly recommended that ongoing ministry students have the opportunity to understand the Hebraic roots of their Christian faith. Who better to spearhead this emphasis than Rev. Perry Stone and his Voice of Evangelism ministry? Using amazing and creative props, Perry Stone and others make Jewish and Biblical history come alive. Additional courses were also recorded and added by ISOM to round out this fascinating new module.
 
Supernatural Architecture Module ‡
This module is produced by Vision International University. Dr. Stan DeKoven is the founder and president of Vision and has been connected to ISOM since its inception. The strong distinctive of VIU is their solid academic approach to the Christian faith and to ministry building. This module captures introductory teachings in subjects like hermeneutics, New Testament Greek, the doctrine of Christ, and many others.
 

Spiritual Intimacy Module ‡
This Module is produced by Christian Leadership Seminary, and taught solely by Dr. Mark Virkler, Academic Dean of CLS, and a prolific author. His hands-on teaching style and publications centered on How to Hear God’s Voice have impacted countless Christians worldwide. He is known for having an emphasis on a learning style that includes personal encounter and revelation, where the classroom is not separated from life (Lamad Education). In this module he covers such topics as Dream Interpretation, Emotional Healing and Spirit-Anointed Teaching. *This module is a requirement for a degree from CLS.

‡ Partner Modules

  • 1+ $90/student plus $175 DVDs

Bachelor transfer of credit fee – $200

Online Students when viewing Vision's link above, the Evidence Verification form just needs Name and Date and ISOM will send the necessary verification to VIEN.

It will be graded and sent back to the student within 30-45 days of receipt. (All copyrights remain the sole property of the student.) Therefore, if Vision desires to publish a particular monograph, thesis, or dissertation, the school will request permission from the student. The final word concerning publication rests solely with the student. Vision will have the binding of the monograph, thesis, or dissertation done at a professional bookbindery. The charge for Vision to have the binding done is $150.00 for two copies. Students may choose to have the binding done themselves, however students must, in writing, request permission to do so. Permission most often will be granted as long as the final product is professional looking and hard-bound (plastic and spiral bindings not accepted) and all specific guidelines (i.e., color, lettering, etc.) are followed. Bachelor’s monographs must be bound in black, Master’s theses in maroon, (maroon Levant or maroon x-grain) or scarlet and Doctoral Projects in Blue (Dark blue with gold lettering).
