Bachelor of Divinity, Diploma in Ministry Studies
Having felt the call of God to go to Bible college and train for ministry, I began looking at a number of Bible Colleges in England where I lived. IBC was recommended to me by father-in-law who attended the college in the 80’s. After visiting the college I was certain that IBC was where God wanted me to be.
The preparation for ministry course appealed to me more than any of the other courses I had seen at other colleges; I was particularly attracted by the practical elements of the course such as church placement. I applied to the college, was accepted and we moved from England to Northern Ireland with a great sense that we were in the will of God.
I enjoyed three years on the preparation for ministry course and graduated with a BD. I am now serving as the Pastor of the church where I did my placement (Portadown Baptist Church).
The training I received at IBC has been a great help in my pastoral ministry so far and I believe I will continue to benefit from my time at IBC for as long as the Lord sees fit to use me in His service.
