The Institute of Ministry is designed to awaken the spirit of the believer to understand the power of the Holy Spirit that the Lord Jesus Christ has made available to each of us.

As you come to Him, the living Stone – rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to Him – you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ.

In the words of Peter, we are to be “…like living stones…” continually being built into a spiritual house. All of us are called and chosen by God according to His purpose.

Come expecting that the I.O.M. will be a life-changing experience for you. The Bible will “come alive,” as you are encouraged not only to hear the Word, but to do the Word. Prominent Bible teachers will share their knowledge and experience on subjects designed to challenge, stimulate and fulfill your yearning to be all that God wants you to be – “a living sacrifice.”

The I.O.M. staff and I are already praying for you as you make plans to attend one of our dynamic ten-week sessions. Will you pray also, and let me know your plans?
