“Since graduating from IBCS in 2016, I have been involved in my church in many different ways. I also love camp ministry and am looking forward to this next summer when I will be the Assistant Director of Treasure Mountain Bible Camp in Marble, Colorado. I am able to use the tools that I learned at IBCS in almost everything I do. In fact, my personal devotions, preparing for a message or a speaking event, singing a special, organizing my time, using critical thinking, running the Junior Department at camp, and discipling those around me all require the valuable training that I received at IBCS.”
