Important New Announcement

ron and i-trainingDear Prayer Partners,

We have some exciting news at I-training. We have recently become incorporated as an independent, nonprofit mission organization. As you probably know, up until now, we have been missionaries with converge SW. They decided to take a new direction and no longer provide oversight for any of their missionaries. At first, we were disappointed with this, but then we discovered this with all for our great advantage.

They were able to give us an incorporation shell and guidance for incorporation. They continue to endorse our ministry and Peter Horne, a key converge SW staff member, is on our advisory board.

Now we are able to track donations as they come in and stay in closer contact with all of our supporters. We are also able to direct specific donations for particular projects and people serving with us. To make sure there is still proper accountability, we have officers and a growing board of advisors.

This does mean that the way you give donations to I-training will change (for the better!). All donations are tax deductible and we will send you a receipt.

If you’re sending a check, please make it out to I-Training and mail it to:


33302 Golden Meadow Ct.

Yucaipa, California 92399

If you want to make an online donation, there are two ways to do this:

1) Go to If you are a Chase Bank customer, log in and set up QuickPay. If you are not a Chase Bank customer, click on the blue box that says “Sign Up Now”. Then anytime you want to make a donation, go to and enter our name and this email address: and the amount you want to give. When we open the email and click on the link to accept the donation, at that point the amount is deducted from your bank account. This is a free service for both of us!

2) Or you can  make a donation using PayPal or your credit card.

If you have any financial questions, please call Jodi Sheveland at 909-797-0343.

Thank you SO much for giving to I-Training. Your support helps us train pastors and church leaders around the world. When you invest in I-Training, your donation is multiplied because we train many who in turn train many! The end result is the equipping of many, many Christians to carry out the Great Commission in some of the most strategic places on our globe.

 Mission trips

 If you have kept up with our newsletters, you know that we have been making regular missions trip. We also have several coming up. Here are the most immediate:

This month, I will be teaching a course in Autlan, Mexico and then another in Guadalajara, Mexico. These courses are part of the Mexican School of Church Leadership that we began about four years ago. Ministry partners traveling with me are Gary Sheveland, Dan Nelson, and Luis Benavides Varela.

In May, I will be traveling to Kathmandu, Nepal where I will teach for two weeks at the Himalayan Graduate School of Theology. My son, Luke, who by that time will have graduated from California Baptist University, will be traveling along as my assistant. I am very excited that he can go with me.

In August, I will be teaching courses in San Lucas and San Jose, Mexico. I will again be working with some of the men mentioned above.

In addition to the Mission trips, I continue to mentor students over the Internet, develop and distribute resources, and help a small church in Tierrasanta, California as their interim pastor.

Would you please pray for these ministries and my family? And if you can make regular or periodic donations, they are greatly needed and appreciated.

On behalf of the whole Sheveland family (Ron, Jodi, Luke and Jessica), I want to thank you for your prayers, gifts and encouragement.

Enjoy God!
