ICM students and graduates often send us thank you letters, comments, and testmonies reflecting upon their ICM College experiences. Now, with our new Testimonials page, we are able to share those words of appreciation with you.
If you are enrolled in an ICM degree program, an ICM graduate student, or someone who has attended an ICM event like our community blitz courses, then please share with others your comments on your experience with the International College of Ministry.

Dr Ray, thank you so much for following the leadership of the Lord to do the classes on Messages from God. As I listened to the class the second time it spoke to me all over again. As you said certain people would never understand or approve of you doing such a class. I thought, God speaks to each of us about certain things. He gives each of us a vision that He may never give to anyone else. I was encouraged by the messages.
It gave me the confirmation to keep on with the classes until I have done what I know the Lord told me to do.
During the class someone commented on my statement when I said " My flesh is afraid". It could have been your wife. I didn't hear it until I listened to the class the second time. They made a simple comment, you can trust Him, Renay. It dropped in my Spirit.That is what you are doing with these messages from God. You are dropping promises, hope, and faith for others to grab hold of and to keep on going, keep on fighting, and to never give up.
Amen and praise God !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I know you are busy but just a quick testimony concerning the class School of Prophets Lesson 2. This morning I took the course and at the end you prayed and gave a word of prophecy, after that you said we should start by asking God for little things like finding our keys or something. Well I have heard you say that before but today I prayed that prayer and asked God to show me where my voice recorder was. I have been looking for it for a few weeks now. To make a long story short, I looked again in some of the same places and started to look in a purse and behind that purse was hanging another purse so I looked in it and there was the voice recorder, I thank you for your teaching.
I just wanted to convey my gratitude, thankfulness and what a blessing you have been to me and my daughter Melisa at the Estepona (Malaga) Church Event in Spain. It was an honor to have you with us and has been an answer to one of my prayers from 5 years ago. Praise the Lord! for He is always faithful and Good.
Your impartation, teachings, testimonies and stories soaking of prayers alongside with your Gifts of Prophecy and passion have been such a blessing, confirmation and great encouragement to me personally. ´My zeal and passion for the Lord has been re-ignited again. I will be connecting to your website and facebook for more blessings. Praise the Lord!
We thank you Father, for our families, friends,brothers and sisters in Christ and for all the blessings, both big and small, that you pour out on us each day. We know, Lord, that this life is not all there is; that the best is yet to come if we live for you. So, help us each day to live our lives in ways that honor and please you. And we'll not forget to give you all the praise and glory.
In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
In His Service.

Blessings to you!
You are so right! The more we know the more faith we have. I have been Christian for 20+ years. I have known of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ but until I took the Essential Christian Doctrines class I didn't realize the depths of all that transpired from start to finish. I am in awe of His finished work. I am in awe of His love for us. While we were still sinners, while we were still "afar off", He had a plan to bring us home to Daddy. (Thank YOU Father!)
Thank You, Dr. Self, for your dedication to the Word and for your hard work and words of encouragement. May He continue to bless you with wisdom and revelation in Jesus Mighty Name! May the LORD continue bless and Keep you. May the LORD continue to smile upon you and be gracious to you. May the LORD continue to show you His favor and give you, His son, His peace.
Through Christ Jesus, I excelled in all of my classes. I remember I felt I would not do well academically. Also, I felt as if I didn't know enough, but I realized, if I applied myself, the Holy Spirit would do the rest. So I leaned on the Holy Spirit and HE did it. So if you feel you are too old, I was mid 40, that’s no excuse. If you feel you don't know enough or you’re not smart enough, that's no excuse either, because if you apply yourself it won’t be you, but the Holy Spirit. I have been elevated from GLORY TO GLORY, higher heights and deeper depths in God. I operate now in the Apostolic and Prophetic. Now there is a boldness in me. I thank God for this college and the opportunity to become equipped. I thank God for Dr. Ray Self who gave me this opportunity to be educated in seminary school.
