Appalachian Connection

Equipping the Called for Effective Christian Service

in the 21st Century

The Appalachian District School of Ministry (AD-SOM) is a ministry of the Appalachian District Council of the Assemblies of God. AD-SOM is recognized by the General Council of the Assemblies of God (with headquarters in Springfield, Missouri) as a District School of Ministry affiliated with the Association of Assemblies of God District Schools of Ministry.

The school's primary purpose is to prepare persons for practical ministry. The study program utilizes the ministry training courses required for ministerial credentials in the Assemblies of God, although completion of the courses does not guarantee ministerial recognition.

Students include both persons pursuing credentials and laypersons desiring to know more about the Bible, theology, and practical ministry. Instructors include ordained ministers, pastors, district officials and college professors.

Courses are taught on a Friday evening and Saturday morning during eight months of the year at First Assembly of God in Princeton, West Virginia. Sessions normally take place the second or third weekend of the months March-June and August-November. Click here to see upcoming courses and dates. Discounted rates for students are available at an area motel.
