Start an ISOM School in Your Church 

If you are the pastor of your church, challenge your members to be trained. Your promotion of the school is critical to its success. Also, appoint a respected facilitator with administrative gifting.

If you are not the pastor of your church, show and submit all materials to your local pastor for approval and support.
Pray and seek God about your personal involvement with the ISOM. Remember that this is more than a program; it is discipleship, and consequently must be directed by His Spirit.
Upon approval from your local pastor, begin to promote the ISOM to people in your church, or to those whom you know will be interested.


                        Guidelines for the Facilitator

Secure a location and time for the classes, as well as all necessary equipment.
Set a date to begin the school (remember to allow at least 2 weeks for order processing with ISOM). Ask potential students to sign up, and pay a registration and material cost of $20USD per student for the first trimester directly to you (then you will make one payment to our office for the class).
Call ISOM- Guyana on 265-4365 ( Sister Sharmila) or 226 2687 (Sister Anjanie) with your school order and payment information.
Expect a 1-2 week delivery time after your order has been placed. Upon receipt, verify your order by checking the videos, workbooks, etc.

                            Making ISOM Your Own

Develop your own style and schedule for your classes. A dress code and punctual starting times are recommended. Attendance for each class session needs to be recorded. Look over the Facilitators Guide (included with school materials) for further instructions. Bathe everything in prayer as you begin your classes, and trust God to accomplish His purposes and plans throughout the lessons.

                               Trimester Completion

Call and order the next trimester at least 2 weeks before your start date. Track students and grades using the formatted spreadsheet that will be provided, then submit this to our office for administrative processing.  We will be always available to assist you along your journey to train and disciple your flock. 

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)  Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
