Transitioning from Glory to Glory. That sums up the amazing move of the Holy Spirit in the JSD projects throughout the nations.
As everyone experienced many changes during the Covid-19 season of destruction, we pressed into the Holy Spirit for change that would not only bring life, but that it would be fully evident to His Word, “life more abundantly”. Jesus said in John 10:10, The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
Directors Pastor Hector and Pastora Elvira have just held the first graduation for JSD – International Bible Institute (IBI). with twenty-five (25) students graduating remotely from the nation of Colombia! JSD – IBI was started so that we could continue the JSD Vision and Great Commission regardless of student location, sickness or government restrictions.
The vision of IBI is that of JSD Ministry; to train and equip laborers for leadership, that they grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ and Kingdom principles, and that through the teaching of the Word of God, students are pointed towards their purpose to know who they are and what they are called to do for the Lord Jesus Christ. The mission of IBI is making it possible for anyone, no matter where they live, to be a student and become a graduate of JSD Leadership Training Bible School.
Currently all lessons beyond Level 1 are in the process of being translated into Spanish. Once the lessons have been translated, IBI will continue to offer students the option to earn certificates upon completion of each level, or for those that feel they have a ministry calling can complete the entire Bible School curriculum, earning a diploma. There will also be specialty courses for more specific training in your ministry field.
