At IBI, you will be taught by teachers passionate about God’s Word in classes where the Scriptures are central.

“Scripture tells us to be “transformed by the renewing of our minds”, it is amazing to spend time really digging deeper in the Word, and letting what we discover clear our misconceptions, affirm the truths we hold and teach us to know the difference. Studying Biblical Interpretation with Craig Blomberg (Distinguished Professor of the New Testament at Denver Seminary) has awakened in me a strong desire to engage, in some measure, in teaching the Word, and a hunger to see others excited about its treasures. ”

Norah Lynch, Christian bookshop worker

“The education I have received so far has given me a clearer understanding of who God is as the Bible depicts. I have learned so much about God’s heart, love and grace during my studies and because of it I am a richer person.”

Andrew Feeney, worship leader

“The courses on offer will deepen and extend your understanding of God’s Word, Christian Doctrine, Church History, as well as many applied fields like Leadership, Evangelistic Strategies, and Church Ministries to all age-groups. We need to offer the Lord our very best in his service, and that means becoming equipped through exactly the kind of educational opportunity IBI offers.”
