The International Society of Deliverance Ministers (ISDM) was established in 2003 as an outgrowth of the Apostolic Roundtable of Deliverance Ministers (ARDM), founded in 2000.
ARDM was originally convened, under the leadership of C. Peter Wagner, with the view of helping recognized deliverance ministers connect with each other, build personal relationships, learn from and encourage one another.
ISDM has been under the leadership and direction of Bill Sudduth founder of Righteous Acts Ministries, Inc. (RAM) , since 2010.
Bill’s vision for ISDM was to recognize and network deliverance ministers nationally and internationally. He also wanted to restore a level of credibility to the ministry of deliverance by providing continuing education and peer level accountability for deliverance ministers. His goal being to see the ministry of deliverance and inner healing back in mainstream Christianity where it belongs.
Bill and his wife Sylvie have ministered deliverance and inner healing on a daily basis and to thousands of people in both individual and group settings.
Despite Bill's passing in November of 2020, ISDM remains active and dedicated to carry on with his and C. Peter Wagner’s legacy, providing resources to deliverance ministers or everyone interested in deliverance.
