Ephesians 4:12 – “to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.”

Last Friday I drove my wife to church where the Cebu Provincial Ministerial Gathering met. Living Word hosted the event. Over 600 pastors and church workers from different Christian churches attended. I.B.I. had set-up a booth so other churches could learn more about I.B.I. My wife had told me that they had quite a number of inquiries, mostly regarding getting a charter.

While waiting for my wife, I happen to chance upon an old friend. He was now a full-time worker in a church in Lapu-Lapu. We were in the same bible study group during my younger years as a Christian. Like old friends, we had reminisced on the past, asking about friends and how they are today. I can’t recall how the conversation actually went but we ended up talking about I.B.I. He had inquired in the booth and had looked forward to enrolling. But due to limited time constrains didn’t have time to inquire more about I.B.I.

I.B.I. has a new website (www.ibi.ph). I.B.I.’s website provides information on courses, seminars, national and international charters, and course schedules. I.B.I. also has an active Twitter and Facebook account which you can link to from the website. Through this you can be informed of upcoming schedules or be notified of new articles and posts. It also allows I.B.I. to reach out to churches and individuals who are in-need of a Bible based education beyond its current reach.

Most pastors and full time workers are often pushed into ministry with very little or no bible based Christian education. Church members and workers are often hesitant to enroll in a bible school due to the lack of time and a disagreeing stand on certain Bible points. And churches can’t start their own bible education program for various reasons like the lack of a structured curriculum, backing from a credible institution, and a lack of a proper enrollment system.

I.B.I. becomes a solution by providing a very strong foundation of not only equipping but teaching students on how to equip themselves. Aside from being concise and well structured, I.B.I.’s curriculum is unique, wherein it allows a church (who has a charter) to instil its stance on certain grey areas of most Christian doctrines upon its students. This greatly benefits the church by helping it reinforce and make a united and definite stand on certain biblical beliefs.

I.B.I.’s curriculum was developed by renowned Bible scholars who were part of the teaching faculty of distinguished Bible schools and seminaries from Europe and the United States.
