Author and speaker Philip Yancey says that half of the world’s two billion Christians are led by pastors with less than two weeks training. The DCI School of Mission is specially designed for such men and women.

These studies which are available in 16 languages have been in use worldwide since 1987 and are genuinely free of charge to help you to learn and then to teach others. Our training is open to everyone and we have no walls, no frontiers and no fees, we never have asked for money and we never will.

The lessons were learned by and then written by our founder Dr. Les Norman, Th.D., M.Ph. and have been distributed free of charge to tens of thousands of students.

The lessons are now taught in hundreds of free or low-cost Schools of Mission in homes, small groups and in churches across the world.

You may see and download any of the modules below or you can take the full diploma level School of Mission programme and ask for the extra materials on the list. Be sure to read the students and leaders FAQS manual which will answer all your questions and help you make a good start, especially if you are starting your own School.

The School of Prayer
John O'Donovan has spent more than 12,000 hours in prayer. Knowing John as we do, this is not silent, contemplative prayer but serious spoken intercession through many a long night, releasing revelation and a multitude of answers from God. John has very graciously given us his study notes on prayer and five audio recordings of the man himself teaching on prayer, and you may download them free of charge by clicking here.

Unreached Peoples Course
Pathway to God's Glory is a free course that is designed for individual, classroom, and small group study on how to develop a biblical world view. Highly recommended.

Funding the Family Business
This is a large book is for people in Christian ministry who raise their own support, written by Myles Wilson, who has lived from a personal support base for over 30 years. The teaching deals with the heart (biblical principles of giving and receiving), the head (how and why people give) and the hands (practical ideas).  Highly recommended.

Discover what God is doing around the world, learn how to use your skills and passions to glorify God - no matter your location or vocation.
