Theology must be put to practice in the church. For this reason, IRBS stresses internship with local churches to provide guided growth and experience in pastoral duties.

IRBS has adopted a structured internship program. This will provide detailed guidance to student interns and the elders who oversee their internships.

1. Leading Worship

2. Preaching

3. Teaching

4. Administration

5. Visitation

6. Counseling

7. Evangelism
