In many countries the gospel is not heard because there is no one to preach. In other countries there are preachers who are in need of assistance in order for their ministries to reach their own people. IBOM helps these national pastors to establish local churches and provides assistance and ongoing training, attempting to bring their churches to an indigenous position as soon as possible. IBOM also helps to meet their needs through church school ministries and Bible college training.
IBOM has started or strengthened over 232 churches since February 1996. IBOM is commissioned by Northwest Bible Baptist Church in Elgin, Illinois, where Dr. Keith Gomez is the pastor.
