Welcome to Destiny School of Ministry


D:SOM came out of the heart and teaching ministry of Apostle Ian Critchley to raise-up pastors, leaders and ordinary church members who would be passionate for God, mature in their faith, developed in theological understanding and effective in their leadership.  It grew out of his lifetime of study and experience in Christian ministry and his passion to see a credible church emerge that would lift up Jesus.  He wanted to provide an opportunity for sincere leaders and members of churches to be trained and equipped to do something great for God.  He wanted to see sensible thinking and balanced theology which would bring credibility to the Gospel in a skeptical world.  He wanted to make the opportunity of accessing Bible School teaching available to all.  The principle 20 modules are a mix of pure theology and practical insights into leadership and character building.  

There will be more information to follow soon about studying online - if you would like to participate in the live events then please contact us directly.
