The Isla Vista School of Discipleship (SOD) is a nine month program that parallels the UCSB quarter system. The vision of SOD is to train and equip people to fulfill the Great Commission. Our focus is to know God, to develop Christ-like character, to love His church, and to live a lifestyle of evangelism in all we do.
The IV School of Discipleship (SOD) serves as a mission base located in Isla Vista. SOD is interdenominational and affiliated with many churches throughout Santa Barbara. Housing is available in conjunction with the classroom and outreach phases of the program.
