"I would suggest ISM to anyone who wants to see God do something amazing.  I don't want to forget anything I've learned here.  I had an experience with God and the Holy Spirit like I've never had before and I look forward to taking all I've learned back home with me."  Jake O'Donnell 01.16

"ISM has stretched me, empowered me, inspired me and equipped me with the tools needed to chase after God with my whole heart. I've learned that even the most ordinary people can do extraordinary things for the Kingdom of God if they step out in faith. ISM has blessed me in countless ways and is the best preparation for anyone who is seeking to serve." Tessa Markam 01.16
