Schools Around the World
There are ISOM schools in more than 140 countries and in over 65 languages. Of the 13,000 plus locations where ISOM is being used around the world, only about 5% are in the Western World, and close to 60% of these schools are in religiously-persecuted nations. ISOM’s ease of implementation enables rapid multiplica- tion growth, but that is only a part of the picture. ISOM’s prolifera- tion worldwide has been mostly accomplished through strategic alliances with others. Good Shepherd Ministries International (GSMI), ISOM’s parent organization, partners with numerous like- hearted ministries/individuals who are passionate about reaching and teaching spiritually-hungry people in distant lands.
Licensing and Regional Distribution Centers
For those who have a missions vision, it is possible to obtain a license allowing the duplication of certain ISOM materials. These are granted at the discretion of the leadership of GSMI and per- mission is renewed each year based on faithful representation of the ISOM program. The one-time license cost is $1,900 USD per language and pertains to a designated geographical region/na- tion of the world (ISOM Video and related materials are not included in the $1900 licensing cost). This enables a ministry to integrate ISOM into their ministry’s vision. As a result, some ministries have started more than 1,000 ISOM schools under a single license.
Those holding valid ISOM licenses are called Regional Centers and more than 100 of these exist worldwide. GSMI is able to refer local contacts from different nations to these Regional Cen- ters and is committed to serve and expand these partnerships. Please contact GSMI if your ministry is interested in starting multiple ISOM schools in a certain nation or region. Note: License agreements are available mostly for developing nations and are not typically available for Western countries.
New Language Translation
If you have a heart to see ISOM translated into a new language, GSMI would love to partner with you to complete that language. It costs about $15,000 to get each new language translated. Depending on the leading of God and the need for a particular language, GSMI may step out in faith with a partnering ministry if at least $5,000 can be initially raised. Since ISOM was designed to train and reach unreached peoples, new languages are the foundation for progress and vision.
