IBR Students is an initiative for Student and Associate members of the Institute for Biblical Research (www.ibr-bbr.org) created to connect, encourage, and equip students. Join us for a time of networking and fellowship, and hear from our guest speaker, Dr. Ben C. Blackwell, about his top 10 list of things he wishes he knew when he was a student. For more information contact students@ibr-bbr.org. RSVP requested but not required.


IBR Students hosts regular, members-only video conferences called “Forums.” Forums typically focus on a particular topic and often feature presentations from IBR Fellows. Forums provide a platform for students and Fellows to dialogue on important topics and connect in a casual and conversational atmosphere. For more information on upcoming Forums, join our members-only Facebook group or follow @IBRStudents on Twitter at twitter.com/ibrstudents.
