MS SCHOOL OF MINISTRY
Preparing Believers for 21st Century Ministry
MS District School of Ministry is recognized and endorsed by the Executive Presbytery of the General Council of the Assemblies of God as a District based Bible Institution.
Mississippi District School of Ministry (MS-SOM) exists to provide training for those sensing a call to ministry, whether as credentialed ministers of the Assemblies of God, or as equipped laypersons within the local church. The school seeks to promote a unified purpose for ministry within the Fellowship, providing doctrinal and practical instruction based upon common core values and shared ministry goals. MS-SOM provides the platform for gifted men and women of God to train those who will put on the mantle of service and invest in the Kingdom of God. The school fully subscribes to the Statement of Fundamental Truths of the Assemblies of God and commits itself to proclaim and support the principles and polity of the Assemblies of God.

August - November and January - May
Classes are conducted once a month, nine times a year. Classroom instruction provides an overview of the material, practical applications, and opportunity for questions and discussion. Instructors use personal experience and a variety of teaching methods.
Three (or more) courses are offered each month, one for each corresponding credential level. Additionally, MS-SOM Plus courses are offered at various times throughout the year. For standard students (non-MS-SOM Plus), participation requires five hours of classroom instruction. Prior to class, each student is required to work through the course text and text overview. A final exam is taken at the end of each class.

"MS-SOM was a lifesaver for me. I could never afford to go off to Bible college since I was married and working full time. I looked into Global and although it was good, the price was still out of reach. And then MS-SOM came about and was really affordable. But you cannot put a price tag on the friendships I've made with fellow students, teachers and district officials. You cannot put a price tag on what I've learned just having fellow pastors impart their knowledge of real life experiences in us to help us grow as future pastors."
