ITEM is a not-for-profit organization that relies solely upon the faithful giving of our supporters for the work of the ministry in the countries of the former Soviet Bloc and worldwide, such as India, to help support our efforts to equip Christian leaders.

 

Theological education is the safest investment that you can make. It withstands Roman armies, World Wars, Communism and dictatorships, and it can be passed on from generation to generation.
