Thank you for your prayers for the board meeting! It was a very meaningful few days as we worked through some important matters from/for IBC’s past, present, and future. I am extremely grateful for a wise and faith-filled board. And I am grateful for the prayer support of God’s people.

Did you know we have a new video on our volunteer work teams? It explains the importance of work teams for IBC and how the volunteers are themselves blessed.

Florida Trip

As I write this I am in Orlando, Florida with six other IBC staff for the annual conference of the Association for Biblical Higher Education ( This relationship with our accrediting association has provided so many benefits over the years, and we are privileged to be in partnership with the 154 schools in the association. In addition to some important meetings and training, I am moderating four discussion-based workshops on matters of diversity, multi-ethnicity, and social justice (read the overview here: ABHE Workshops 2022 Overview). Please pray for these workshops, my leadership in facilitating the discussions, and the participation of two of our Native staff: Coreen Esplin and Joshua Ortiz.

Thanks for your partnership with the Indian Bible College on behalf of the Lord’s work in Native America,

Dr. Jason Koppen
Acting Academic Dean
