IBL, The Institute of Biblical Leadership began over 35 years ago. Focusing on a leader’s motivation, character, call, roles, and relationships, we help God’s leaders develop consistency in spiritual disciplines and ministry practices, and to experience Spirit-led transformation and God-glorifying ministry. Because leaders who honor God don’t just come out of nowhere, we come alongside God’s leaders to help them take the next steps to be the leader God intends them to be. We do this through four ministries: Coaching, Consulting, Counseling, and Training. We are burdened to make a difference in the lives of God’s leaders both here in the U.S. and around the world. We do this all for no-fee to the churches or individual leader. We are a faith-based ministry who serves under the authority of the local church.
