Current cooperative efforts between IIIM and other organizations
The mission of IIIM can best be accomplished by building partnerships with many Christian ministries. We currently have significant ties to the churches, denominations, agencies, missionaries, seminaries, Bible schools and other groups listed below. This list is not exhaustive. Relations are listed in alphabetical order.
Anglican Mission in America
AMiA is a conservative, Bible-believing branch of the Anglican Church under the authority of the Anglican Church of Rwanda. IIIM produced two courses, The Theology of the Word and The Theology of Sacraments, for the Anglican Mission in America’s Anglican Studies Program. These courses are used to train U.S. clergy, and are distributed in various parts of Africa to help train church leaders in the Anglican church of that continent.
Arab World Evangelical Ministers Association
IIIM has direct distribution with AWEMA ministers abroad, and through AWEMA international conferences. AWEMA is the broadest cooperative movement of evangelicals in the Arab world.

Chinese House Churches and House Seminaries
Many house (underground) churches and seminaries in the People's Republic of China use IIIM materials to help train their church leadership. House churches in China have grown from small meetings to study centers to seminaries, yet remain without enough qualified teachers at their main seminaries and without a full formal curriculum for their satellite seminary sites. IIIM materials help solve both needs. One such house church/denomination uses IIIM materials at its main seminary and at three satellite sites in mainland China. It is connected with several denominations that account for 929 churches and more the 55,000 members.
