The administration and faculty strongly believe in the contribution and vital role of chapel and its ministry of encouragement, worship, and community development. RIBC provides chapel services for students each morning, Monday through Friday, during the training. Chapel services feature music and messages by faculty members and other Christian leaders as well as student-led chapels. Prayer needs, announcements, and items of general interest are also shared during this community time.
The RIBC family is blessed by the ministry of anointed men and women of God from around the world. All members of the faculty are committed to the spiritual formation of students and are available for pastoral care and guidance. The community life is designed to foster a vibrant spirituality and the development of Christian character and gifts.
Church Life And Practical Ministry
One of the great features of your training experience is becoming part of the life and family of Ruah Revival Church. If you are from outside Chennai you will be making Ruah Revival Church as your home church during your training. If you already have a home church in Chennai would love you to remain actively involved there, although there will be some times throughout the training period when we will need you at Ruah Church for College related activities. A key aspect of your training is your involvement in practical ministry, where you get to put your learning into practice, developing leadership experience a track-record of fruitfulness and a legacy of changed lives. You will be involved practically in various ministry teams during the week and in Sunday services.
Freedom and Youth Camps
Students participate in Freedom & Youth Camps held throughout the year in different parts of India, as part of their course. These events have a national and international impact and students will experience the life-changing privilege of being involved in them.
