Getting Started

Hello all! ;) It's a funny thing. I was talking to my mom yesterday about how I don't have strong support and pretty much every single friend I've had has abandoned me in one way or another. So, my mom asks, "Can't you connect with other students?" Oh, I never thought of that! I am pulling this forum today before I get the kids and am amazed I somehow missed this! It's been hard to be friendless, but I know He is working on bringing NEW friendships around, better than the ones before. I have been on fire and love how these messages are so rich in the Word! I've had to personally push through quite a bit since I've begun these studies, but breakthroughs have come SUDDENLY! Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!!:love:

Hello Everyone. I am new this program as of 02/2019 for the very first time. I am still trying to understand how it works, learning with all of you, and looking forward to what God has for me in this phase of my life. I solicit your prayers.

I will pray for you... and if you've got something specific, you are more than welcome to share or message directly. :)

As being my 1st time to visit the forums and getting acquainted with how everything works I've found a renewed passion for learning the word of God. I just completed Leadership Vision from the 3rd trimester with Dr. David Shibley and made my 1st perfect score on the exam. Hallelujah. So with a renewal of mind I anxiously await a continued growth in my spiritual walk and closeness with OUR FATHER and you, my brothers and sisters sharing in this journey with me. Thank You ISOM for making this journey possible for me right here at home. God bless you all.❤

Today, just a few hours ago I joined ISOM!! I have not been in a class or study for years. Got to learn the online way of school.... smile. I ask and pray for God to impart his knowledge in me wholly and true. I will commit to study to show my self approved. However ,as a person I could get weak, so please pray for me to be a success with ISOM.
I will do the same for you likewise. Connect with me that we can unite and bond in study and go forth like a Lion to minister in God's grace.

Hello, I am happy for this opportunity to enhance my spiritual walk by studying with wonderful people like you. I am new and hope I enjoy earning
my Associate Degree as much as some of you according to your post.
The way it works is this. You start with a semester and take the class. If you have the hard-copy workbook, you can take notes there. I use the PDF version, so I take my own notes - this way I read the topic twice. Then you do the exercises at the end of each session: Group Discussion & Self-Study. After this you connect here on ISOM Connect, which is where we students communicate with each other. You can answer the questions or share freely, like we are doing now. Personally, I think ISOM works very well as an online Bible school, also considering that you can take the classes at your own pace (I do a lesson per week) and the curse is university accredited!

Hello beloved brothers and sisters in Christ. I just started the ISOM degree programme last month. It is a deep spiritual experience for me. Having being in full time Pastoral ministry for close to two decades, I can humbly say that I am making new spiritual discoveries in this program. It is a great privilege to be a part of such a great spiritual movement. Thank you all for the opportunity to learn and share. God bless you.
Welcome!

Hello Everyone: Just want to say how much I am enjoying these classes. I am soaking up every teaching like a sponge. I have a funny story to share. Several months ago I heard about ISOM and tried it for 30 days and had a hard time watching the videos with the interpreter portion. I don't know why, but I was easily distracted. Therefore, I canceled my membership and didn't give it a second thought. However, God had other plans! A few months later I received a student workbook for semester 1 & II and figured it was a fluke so I contacted the school to return them. Little did I know that it was a God divine set up for my destiny! The Holy Spirit spoke to me and told me to keep those books and start my journey. I immediately did and have been soaking up these teachings ever since. I found that if I listen and not necessarily watch the videos, I am not distracted. BUT then I devour my workbook material, jump on to ISOM Connect and discuss and watch the video if I have any questions. I am now partially done trimester 3 and I am overwhelmed with gratitude to God and to everyone at ISOM. These teachings are so rich and so good. They are catapulting me in my journey of ministry. Thank you so much! I am really excited to see what God continues to do through ISOM and all the students!

George, Thanks for your help. I understand much better what I need to do. I appreciate this school very much, because it enable me to study at my own pace and earn a degree. I was hoping for simplified instructions to maneuvering through the program.
