Welcome to Institute of Bible Teaching

Institute of Bible Teaching (IBT) is an interdenominational college offering men and women practical training in understanding and teaching the Bible through interactive classroom based courses.

From inception, the Institute of Bible Teaching (IBT) has aspired to bring wholesome bible teaching to the whole nation of Zimbabwe. The Institute has been able to give an in-depth study of the bible and tools to apply to contemporary realities. The core course is practical and focused on the skills and knowledge needed to be an effective Bible teacher. The subjects include a Bible Overview, general Bible handling skills (exegesis, hermeneutics and homiletics, Handling OT and NT literature, Systematic Theology, Engaging with God’s World, Christian Leadership and weekly Preaching Workshop.

The program has been able to impact many and add value training to more men and women, setting their hearts on fire and blessing the local church with good bible teachers who love their Lord. This has been demonstrated by the faithful teaching of the word in churches where trained students fellowship. Some have gone a step further to plant churches in an attempt to bless the nation with sound bible teaching and living out the call to be salt and light. 

More so some trained students have made the decision to take their theological training further as evidenced by their enrolment for degree theological programs at the Zimbabwe Theological College of Zimbabwe and beyond.
