Training ministry workers for the harvest worldwide.
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and disciple the nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:18-20
Birthed with a passion to obey the Great Commission, Missio Global Ministries works to fulfill the vision God has given to us of making one million disciples for Christ worldwide who will plant one thousand churches. But how can this be accomplished? How can it be possible to disciple one million people?
The answer lies in the power of multiplication. Our strategy is to partner with local churches around the world to establish 100 schools of ministry, with each school having a goal of training 100 ministers, and each graduate's mission in life being to reach and disciple at least 100 people for Christ. This simple multiplication will yield one million disciples for Christ!
The primary tool to fulfill our mission is the Missio Global School of Ministry (MGSOM), a church-based ministry training school that is led by the local church leadership. Missio Global partners with church leaders around the world to establish a School of Ministry right in their church. This enables the church to effectively train their members, reach their community, start new churches, and even to send missionaries. Local church leaders have the responsibility to equip their members and send workers to this needy world. The Missio Global School of Ministry is a valuable training tool to help the local church fulfill this call from the Lord.
When our founder Dr. Simmons was a lead pastor, there were many people in his church who wanted to be trained for ministry, but were not able to leave their homes, jobs, and family to go to a Bible School or Seminary. This is the reality in most local chuches. To meet this need Dr. Simmons established and led a school of ministry in his church beginning in 2002.
After nine years of refinement and with many graduates functioning in ministry, the initial school of ministry formed the basis of the Missio Global School of Ministry. The process to expand Missio Global Schools of Ministry internationally began in earnest in 2012 when Scott and Sherri Dalton began working with Dr. Simmons to write the curriculum and further develop the program so that it could be reproduced in other churches. The Daltons initiated the first MGSOM outside of the United States in Garanhuns, Brazil, which serves as the prototype for the current Schools of Ministry.
With the retirement of our founder Dr. Lee Simmons, Scott Dalton became the International Director of Missio Global on January 1, 2019, with Sherri Dalton serving as the Assistant to the Director. In 2018 the Daltons returned to live in the USA after over fourteen years serving in Brazil. They now reside in Newark, Ohio where they lead the growing international impact of Missio Global.
