The Alabama School of Ministry (ALSOM) was created by the Alabama Network Presbytery of the Alabama Ministry Network of the Assemblies of God to serve as Alabama’s official Network/District School of Ministry (N/DSOM). ALSOM is an online interactive educational and training experience that includes online access to all course material including the nationally produced Global University Berean textbook in downloadable formats. Each course also includes archived best lecture videos, live interaction with our excellent instructors, and online exams providing immediate grades to the students.

ALSOM uses textbooks produced by Berean School of the Bible, the national institute level distance education school for men and women seeking ministerial credentials with the Assemblies of God. The textbook is supplemented with the best in current, relevant collateral reading and viewing resources in each course. Instructors are chosen from among credentialed Assemblies of God ministers or skilled instructors with education and experience specific to each particular class. Our instructors all have bachelors degrees and in most cases additional study and/or advanced degrees relevant to the course.

ALSOM students receive the latest and best scholarship and training we can provide in every course. ALSOM is not accredited by regional accrediting agencies, but is a high-quality institute level educational experience offering far more than most institute level programs at a much lower cost to the student. At present the classes are offered primarily on a monthly basis January through May, and August through November. June and December are used as make-up months for any courses that were missed earlier in the year.

Anyone choosing to attend may obtain more detailed information, from the ALSOM home page here. We look forward to working with you as you prepare for service in God’s Kingdom, whether as an Assemblies of God minister or a layperson seeking deeper knowledge of God’s Word and work.

Blessings to you,

Rev. Michael D. Sharp, D.Min.
