The West Florida District School of Ministry (DSOM) exists to help individuals develop the skills, talents and knowledge to be prepared to minister to those people that God brings into their lives. DSOM, along with the Berean School of the Bible, as well as the Assemblies of God endorsed Bible Colleges and Universities, desire to help prepare God’s servants. DSOM and Berean courses may be interchanged in the educational process to qualify for ministerial credentials with the West Florida District.

DSOM instructors are giving of their time and talents to give students the benefit of their ministerial experience and knowledge. The instructors want you to benefit from the truth that God has given to them during their ministry.

Classes are designed to be interactive in order to engage and stimulate the retention of the subject. We trust that you will find not only a friendly and yet challenging environment, but a class that gives you practical and useful knowledge that will enable your ministry to excel.

DSOM exists for the sole purpose of preparing you to develop into the servant leader that God intended you to become. Feel free to call on us if we can be of any assistance in achieving that goal.
