What ICL Students Are Saying

“This is the best class I have ever taken. I find myself now reading and studying the Bible in a new way. I have increased confidence that I can find the true, author-intended meaning of a text.”

Hermeneutics

with Dr. Abner Chou

“Nathan boiled down Church history to a level that was easily understandable by the layperson. I gained insights into the Reformed Movement that I had not been taught before, which Nathan weaved nicely together to show how the Protestant Reformation applies to the modern church today.”

The Reformation

with Dr. Nathan Busenitz

“The Institute for Church Leadership is what I, as a pastor, have been looking for to train my church!”
