Michigan School of Ministry (MISOM) exists to provide training for those sensing the call to ministry, whether as a credentialed minister of the Assemblies of God or as an equipped layperson within a local church. The school seeks to promote a unified purpose for ministry by providing doctrinal and practical instruction based on common core values and shared ministry goals.
MISOM classes will be conducted once a month 10 times each year. Three courses are offered during each session; one for each corresponding credential level (certified, licensed and ordained). Students participate in six hours of class room instruction (three hours on Friday evening and three on Saturday morning). A final exam is taken and scored at the end of the final session.
Prior to class each student is required to work through the course text and text overview. A minimum of 10 hours of preparatory work is usually needed.
The classroom instruction provides an overview of the material, practical applications and the opportunity for questions and discussions. Instructors use personal experience and a variety of teaching methods.
All classes are held at Faholo Camp and Conference Center in Grass Lake, Michigan.
Pastors, please make members of your congregation aware of this opportunity.
