In April 2017, we will travel to Kijabe, Kenya to continue a training program with thirty-one pastors and church leaders. The week-long training event consists of fourteen sessions in specific areas of Christian theology, pastoral ministry, and biblical leadership. These classes have been designed to meet the specific needs of church leaders in Kenya.
As we enter the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we give praise and thanks to our heavenly Father for His steadfast love and care for us and those we serve. You have been generous in the past. Thank you! We again ask you to consider a year-end gift to support all that God is accomplishing through IBL.
After more than twenty-five years of using essentially the same logo—a globe and cross resting on an open Bible—this year we have made a major revision which better communicates the purpose of our ministry.
The internet is a powerful tool with almost limitless potential. One of the major ways that it’s affected everyday life is through online shopping. Now, people can order books, movies and so much more from the comfort of their own homes.
As we enter the final months of celebrating our twenty-fifth year of ministry, and my first year of leading IBL as President, the words of Paul to the Corinthians are rich with application. First, they are a clear reminder and admonition that all our efforts be built upon the solid foundation of Christ as He is revealed in scripture.
Twenty-five years... WOW! It doesn’t seem possible. During this first quarter century the Lord has taken us through a whirlwind of blessed opportunities to build in the lives of ministry leaders all around the world. It is fitting at this juncture for me to consider how my remaining time in IBL can best be invested.
