Christian Ministries from around the world have come together to create the

International School of Ministry® (ISOM®). These teachings have been developed

to help the Church in many nations, enabling Christian believers to understand
their faith and become servants of Jesus Christ.

has also been developed. Other Express language include Spanish, Portuguese,
German, Mandarin, Japanese, Hindi, and many others. The Express format re-
moves the original live translation and cuts in half the class time needed to run
the program. These language options enable great flexibility of use. Locations
of ISOM schools span the spectrum from US-based mega-churches to refugee
camps in Africa. ISOM is truly a global equipping tool.

The International School of Ministry (ISOM) is often mistakenly seen as being just
another helpful product. What many miss is the vision that drove it to be created.
ISOM’s founders, Berin and Lisa Gilfillan, were originally working with German
evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. Using their training and background in television and
journalism, their tasks were to document the salvations, miracles and healings at
Bonnke’s giant crusade events. It was during their time with Bonnke that they
Berin & Lisa outside of ISOM headquarters
became heavily burdened to see those vast numbers of new converts discipled.

During two years of study under Dr. C. Peter Wagner at Fuller Theological Seminary,
Berin and Lisa learned a strategic missions truth. Wagner convinced them, through
research, that the most effective evangelistic strategy under heaven was to plant
new churches. It was also during the Fuller season that Berin studied a local church in
Alaska that had sent out over 1,300 of its members, in teams, to plant new churches.
Berin & Dr. C. Peter Wagner Their strategy was simple: • turn the local church into a ministry training center
• turn the local church into a church planting center

The ISOM is more than a product. It is a practical vehicle to help the Church
fulfill an end-time strategy and vision for the Kingdom of God!
Following Fuller, Berin and his family headed for a season of missionary work in
Nigeria, West Africa. Using an English video curriculum put together from a number
of respected ministries, they experimented with a unique training approach in
Nigeria. They registered students and helped pastors start church-based training
centers inside local congregations. The results were beyond all expectation. During
Berin at an ISOM graduation in Nigeria an 18-month period, amidst political and economic turmoil, they registered over
4,000 students and started 140 training schools. What was even more significant
was the powerful transformation that the Word of God produced in the lives of the
students. Although the teachings came through video, a powerful anointing was
transferred from the veteran ministers who taught the curriculum to the believers
who sat under their instruction.

While in Nigeria, Berin and Lisa’s hearts turned to other nations of the world. They
Berin recording Joyce Meyer knew if the program worked in West Africa, it would also function in Latin America,
China, Russia, India and even in developed regions like North America, Europe, and
Australia. In 1994, they returned to California to create the ISOM, a project that has of-
ten been called the training equivalent of the Jesus film. This is because the material
was created with the ability to easily be translated into any language on earth. The
initial recordings took 20 months and cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Today the ISOM still maintains its original two goals of turning every local church
on earth into a ministry training center and then into a church planting center. The
people at ISOM believe that God wants to bring about a mass training of laborers for
Christ to use in His end-time harvest. This conviction drives the ISOM vision every day
and has inspired the ministry’s slogan Equipping Locally on a Global Scale.

ISOM is the world’s largest church-based video Bible school. Our teachers consist
of the most respected pastors, leaders, and evangelists from around the world.
The original core ISOM recordings took place over a five-year period between
1995–2000. The bios are at least accurate from the time of each recording. Some
ministries have changed, others have since grown significantly, and some minis-
ters have gone on to be with the Lord. Most photos are from the original record-
