From the Director’s Desk
I am happy to greet you in the precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. By His grace I got the opportunity to serve MIIS as its Academic Director to plan and organize different activities that would promote theological education and indigenous research for independent Church Pastors, College Students and Research Scholars, with the help from our eternal God and support from the esteemed Board of Trustees. MIIS is revived and is fulfilling its commitment. Please pray for us.
