It started when God gave a new assignment : Mission task to our principal Rev. Dr. Jonathan Trisna who has served as teacher in practical theology at bethel seminary. He felt God wanted him to be involved in the great commission ( Mat 28 : 19-20 ). With his younger brother David Timotius Trisna and several others, they started BSOM ( Borneo School of Mission) to disciple lost souls in Borneo (Kalimantan)..


To help people in Kalimantan become disciples of Christ


To train 30 Pastors ready to harvest and to pastor people in Kalimantan. They must have the character of the Lord Jesus Christ
