Prerecorded Virtual IBS Courses

Prerecorded virtual IBS courses last either 10 weeks (winter/fall) or 5 weeks (summer).

In the 10 week format, these courses require five to six hours per week.  In the 5 week format, they require ten to twelves hours.  (Intro to Mission was lauched in 2016 and can be substituted toward Church History if you joined before 2016.  You can learn more here.)

These courses are not "work at your own pace."  Although there are no scheduled class sessions, each week there are specific assignments with due dates you must complete  (e.g., reading, watch lectures, assignments).  You can do the work anytime you want during the week but you must complete the assignments for that module by a fixed date.

Five IBS courses are currently available in this format: Old Testament Survey, God/Bible/Holy Spirit, Apologetics, Church History and Intro to Mission. 

Refund policy for withdrawing from a virtual class:

  • Full refund up if withdrawing by 20% of the class meetings (two weeks for a ten-week class, one week for a five-week class) 
  • No refund if withdrawing after 20% of the class is completed (two weeks for a ten-week class, one week for a five-week class)
  • Email ibs.info@cru.org to withdraw from a class.
