CONNECT 2017 recap

On February 23, 2017, Indiana Bible College hosted 158 high school juniors and seniors. The guests were welcomed by the student body for three days of events. Thursday afternoon was the beginning of a great weekend. Students from all over the country came expecting great things to happen.

IBC CONNECT is designed for potential students to experience first-hand what it is like to attend IBC.

Each CONNECT student is assigned an IBC img_5208student; everyone attends classes, chapel, choir, and lunch together. After check-in on Thursday, IBC students, CONNECT students and staff were all a part of the CONNECT SOCIAL. From pizza to archery tag, everyone had a fun time.

A specific class schedule is designed for CONNECT weekend. Students have the option to choose course offerings that highlight each minor offered at Indiana
Bible College. Chapel typically happens on Tuesday/Thursday at IBC; however, during
CONNECT we had a Friday chapel where Bro. Mooney challenged students, “Can we do it again?” One of the most life-changing events for both IBC and CONNECT students is the Friday night Worship Studies Concert. IBC Singers, IBC Chorale, Unidos, and IBC Praise were among those who ministered to the CONNECT students at the concert. Many IBC students who recall being a part of previous CONNECT events were among those singing and playing on the platform this year. As the concert progressed, the Spirit of God fell and filled the entire room.

Lift up holy hands.Kaitlyn Doublin, a CONNECT student from North Carolina, said, “Being able to have a real IBC experience was exactly what I needed from God. From meeting new people, feeling enriched in ministry driven courses, and having God move over my heart during chapel and the concert, it was worth the trip.”

IBC CONNECT was a powerful experience for all of those involved. In one weekend CONNECT students experienced all three aspects of the Bible school experience: academic, spiritual and social life. We are excited to see applications come in from all around the country to become part of the IBC family. It is never too early to make plans to CONNECT attend next year, February 22-24, 2018.
