Prerecorded Virtual IBS Courses

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

Each week you have certain assignments you must complete  (e.g., reading, watch lectures, assignments) but there are no scheduled class sessions.  You work when you want.  

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