Graduation Speech – Pastor Dennis Galuna

Our long awaited desire to become a Bible school graduate has finally come true. In our case 4 years of hard work and perseverance has finally came to an end. We have been longing for this honorable day, “Our Graduation Day” that before this curriculum was introduced to our church, we were contented serving, not knowing we were not fully equipped to preach.

Today, The IBI for me has become one of the greatest achievement and experienced, in  my several years as a pastor, ever since I started in the ministry all I had was a willing heart, a Bible, and a few extra biblical books and that was it, It just boils down to God working in the hearts of the listeners but sad to say it was all skin deep preaching.

With the IBI, the surveys of the Old and New Testament books has truly enhance my knowledge, which I have even learned to apply them Sunday after Sunday, the hard materials included in our study became a commentary during my personal studies, and one can only declare “To God Be All Glory”.

In the other side of the coin, there were times when I had difficulties answering some of the questioners but this never became a hindrance to quit, it even became a challenge to persevere, this reminds me of what the Apostle Paul said to the Corinthian church which he says… Therefore, my dear brother, stand firm, let nothing move you, always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

This is the beauty of the IBI, and today we are all here gathered in one purpose, to accept the rewards of our years of study and labor. I pray to God that we will cherish this day for the rest of our lives. Thank you and God bless to all of you.
