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 and Doris Wagner with the view of helping recognized deliverance ministers connect with each other, build personal relationships, learn from and encourage one another, and create a structure for accountability.
After a number of annual meetings, it became evident that ARDM was serving a valuable purpose, but that a broader structure was needed. We live in a time when ministries relating to demonic deliverance are rapidly increasing in the USA and in other parts of the world. Because ARDM was designed to build accountability through personal relationships, the size of the group had been limited to 25, and the meetings were conducted in a roundtable format. However, each of the ARDM members were acquainted with many other deliverance ministers whom they regarded as peers, but who could not become a part of ARDM because of size limitations.
Consequently, ARDM members agreed to expand the organization from a roundtable to a professional society. The name International Society of Deliverance Ministers (ISDM) was chosen. ISDM is not limited by size, and therefore it is able to serve any number of deliverance ministers who perceive value in associating with peers for the purpose of building relationships, learning from one another and expanding mutual integrity.

Since 2010 ISDM had been under the leadership and direction of Bill Sudduth founder of Righteous Acts Ministries, Inc. (RAM) in Stephens City, VA.
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 Sudduth and his wife Sylvie had been ministering deliverance and inner healing on a daily basis and to thousands of people in both individual and group settings.
Despite his 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.
