Raising church leaders ⛪️
During the IBC report at churches council on Saturday Davy Ellison, our training director, reminded churches of their responsibility to raise godly pastors / leaders for the future.
The path to being a pastor isn’t a short one, but the college is delighted to help be a part of that process by offering theological training that is academically rigorous and vocationally focused 📖
