And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out!
In an age of increasing evil the ancient spiritual practice of exorcism is in demand. The Catholic Church believes there should be an exorcist in every diocese. The Church of England (Anglican) wants an exorcist in every parish. Martin Luther, the father of the Reformation, included an exorcism ritual in the service books for pastors and made exorcism a part of baptism. Justin Martyr (2nd Century apologist), Tertullian (2nd Century polemicist) Origin (3rd century theologian), St. Cyril (4th century Bishop of Jerusalem), and other church Fathers all taught that exorcism was a normal part of church life.
Unfortunately, not a single Protestant denomination has a seminary that teaches exorcism. Those who feel called by God to cast out evil spirits have had nowhere to turn for comprehensive instruction – until now! Rev. Bob Larson, the world’s foremost Protestant exorcist, has a vision to restore prayers of exorcism to Christianity and has founded the International School of Exorcism (ISE)®. Rev. Larson explains, “One-third of all the chapters in the synoptic Gospels contain instances of exorcism and references to demonic possession. In our world of rampant crime, inhumanity, and child abuse, the need to boldly confront demonic forces is more critical than ever.”
ISE’s mission is to train those called to fulfill Christ’s command to heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free (Luke 4:18). The School’s curriculum is specifically designed to teach Christian leaders and laypersons the spiritual disciplines of inner healing, deliverance, and exorcism. Various levels of certification are available to those who feel called to this ministry.
Instructional studies include in-depth training in Basic Curse Breaking, the Weapons of Spiritual Warfare, Mental & Emotional Aspects of Deliverance, and Procedures and Principles of Casting out Demons. Applications for enrollment are now being received, but space is limited. For more information, please contact the Director of Admissions at:
