What We Do & How We Got Here
When our founder Dr. J. Lee 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 Co-Director. In 2018 the Daltons moved back to 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.
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 leadership training tool to help the local church fulfill this call from the Lord.
