MINISTRY

OMI has been ministering in the Americas for the last 21 years establishing the local church through equipping servants at the pastorate level. OMI has 4 larger areas of ministry that utilize 7 different platforms to promote obedience to the Great Commission.

INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE OF BIBLICAL THEOLOGY

International Institute of Biblical Theology, (Dean, Dr. Donald Korach), has graduated more than 7,000 students (as of 2022) in ten countries in Latin America. The I.I.B.T. has accredited recognition from the ACI (Accrediting Commission International).

 

We provide a well-rounded study program with four theological levels of study:

 

1.) Ministerial Preparation.

2.) Diploma in Theology.

3.) *Bachelor in Theology.

4.) **Masters in Theology.

 

This academic experience is available in two forms:

1. Traditional, printed materials.

2. Virtual, via the Internet.

*Requires a high school diploma or a GED equivalent  

**Requires a high school diploma or a GED equivalent  & Bachelors in theology 

 THEOLOGICAL SYMPOSIUMS

Pastoral Theological Symposiums are 1-2 day events in which a pastor can receive workshop style education designed to instruct and equip them in theory and praxis. At least two teachers are involved in these all-day symposiums in which they offer 3-4 thematic workshops a day.

 

Often times the pastors whom attend these symposiums have geographic, economic or educational challenges. Therefore, OMI provides food, transportation, housing, all educational materials and instruction free of charge. We purposefully do not take up an offering to cover our costs as we seek to truly alleviate the burdens of these pastors in order they may be more effective and bear more fruit in their local churches.   

YOKED TOGETHER AS LOCAL CHURCHES

Yoked Together as Local Churches is a program that aims to bring English and Spanish-speaking pastors, and their local churches, to engage in the “Great Commission” more effectively.

The objective is to cross and close the cultural gap between churches on an international level. These churches seek to share resources, such as Biblical instruction, prayer commitments, short-term groups, and local projects (evangelism, construction, feeding, anti-drug and gang programs, etc.) so that the “Great Commission” becomes more obtainable and accessible. 

TRANSLATION

For updates on the progress of these works please subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of the page. 

MINISTERIAL THEOLOGICAL LIBRARY

Ministerial Theological Library is a free resource for God's servants who desire useful materials in the Spanish language to deepen and strengthen their knowledge of God. Many times the necessary resources for pastors are difficult to access due to lack of opportunity or materials readily available to them in their language. The library seeks to supply this need through source materials in formal, biblical, and historical theology such as commentaries, lexical aids, Bible concordances, varied articles, audio mp3 teachings, and video clips. 

If you are interested in donating specifically to this library at large or desire to purchase a specific material for pastors to access please contact us HERE

INTERNATIONAL CHAIN OF PRAYER GROUPS

International Chain of Prayer Groups is a developing prayer team throughout the Hispano-American speaking world. Presently we have several prayer groups praying frequently for the fulfilling of the Great Commission.

 

If you desire to participate in these coordinated efforts or receive our monthly prayer letter, please, e-mail Benjamin Sherrill at:

PASTORAL MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

Pastoral Mentorship Program is designed as small groups of ministers that meet for weekly discipleship. These meetings are essential for the edification and accountability of the pastors. It is a time for them to share, engage and dialogue so that each pastor becomes more theological, relevant, mature and efficient in pastoring their flocks.

For information about when and how often these pastors meet please see our EVENTS page.
