Hello friends of IBC!

I hope that the first month of 2021 has been a time of encouragement and growth for you, just as it has been for us here at the Indian Bible College and in the Koppen home.

The Indian Bible College Spring semester is in full-swing, and we are praising the Lord for a COVID-free campus so far.  We praise the Lord 20 on-campus students and another 18 part-time students, most of whom are attending our Tuesday night Basic Theology class online.
We’ve enjoyed a lot of snow this month, which is much needed as Arizona is in the midst of a drought.  And we are FINALLY just about done with the renovations to the Learning Resource Center portion of our new Student Center building; we dedicated this newly developed space to the Lord just last week.  Here’s a link to the February 2021 Collage — pictures of both of these “happenings.”
New this semester is the opportunity for YOU to attend chapel virtually on Tuesday mornings!  Tuesday chapels usually have guest speakers, but we will also have some student testimonies throughout the semester.  Here are the details.
My family is hitting the road February 12th for the first “presidential tour” in over 18 months.  We plan to travel over 6,100 miles in just three weeks!   Please pray for our travels; we anticipate that winter weather and COVID-19 limitations will create some challenges for this trip.  Pray also for our interview with the Commission on Accreditation on February 17th in Orlando–we hope to be awarded Initial Accreditation as a result of this meeting!

Thank you for your prayers and support for IBC’s ministry.  IBC is a very special and unique ministry; we often say that “no one does what we do, the way we do it, for whom we do it.” And your partnership makes that possible!
