The Board is pleased to announce that Steven Singleton has been appointed as the new Principal of IBI.  Steven will succeed Jacob Reynolds who has led IBI over the last 21 years.  Steven will assume the role of Principal from 1 April 2018.

Tipperary, for 12 years prior to becoming IBI’s MA Programme Director in 2003 and has been IBI’s Director of Learning since 2015.  As Director of Learning, Steven successfully led the IBI team through the process of academic validation with York St. John University.  Steven is fully committed to IBI’s mission of serving the Irish Church through excellence in biblical education and leadership development.

Jacob says, “I am very pleased that the Board have appointed Steven to succeed me as Principal.  I have worked with Steven for over 15 years and believe he has the right skills and attitudes to effectively serve God and the Church in this role at this time.”

The Board and staff of IBI will be praying for every success for Steven as he takes on the responsibilities of his new role and leads IBI into the next phase of its development.
