Who We Are


Cen­tral Val­ley School of Min­istry began in Fall 2005 as a local church-based min­istry train­ing school serv­ing the Cen­tral Cal­i­for­nia San Joaquin Val­ley.

CVSOM was started to meet the need for con­ve­nient, acces­si­ble, and prac­ti­cal min­istry train­ing for lead­ers serv­ing in the local church and min­is­ter­ing for Christ in the work­place. In the first fifteen years over four hun­dred have enrolled and more than two hundred and eighty have com­pleted the one-year min­istry train­ing program.


Central Valley School of Ministry exists to develop Christian leaders in biblical understanding, ministry skills and personal maturity, equipping them to fulfill God’s call to serve the local church, establish new churches, minister cross-culturally and develop workplace ministry.
