Dr. Mike Johnston began Promise Ministries in 1981 in an effort to offer top quality, affordable, distance education to born-again, Bible believing, Christ-honoring prisoners all across America. To date, over 30,000 have taken advantage of the vast opportunities offered through our intense, doctrinally sound distance Bible and Ministry training center. Prisoners and non-prisoners are both cordially invited to begin their Bible study and ministry preparation by mailing in an application to enroll. You can find an application by clicking here.

OLD SCOFIELD THEOLOGY MAJOR: (2 Years)
We believe the Old Scofield is the finest study Bible on the planet.

You will dig through Scripture from 5 disciplines in 4 separate modules that will include: Scofield Studies, Biographical Studies, Biblical Studies, Theme Studies, and Theological Studies.
