About}

Welcome to the online presence of International Bible College of New Orleans. International Bible College (IBC) is a ministry of City Church New Orleans that is committed to establishing a biblical foundation and developing Christian character in the hearts of men and women who sense the call of God on their lives.

IBC can be experienced over nine months, two year, or four year periods. To the degree that you sense the call of God on your life, IBC is here to equip you for that purpose. Our Lord has always been in the business of multiplying the little that we have to meet the needs of others. Just as it has always been, that multiplication is preceded by a faithful offering regardless of its size. Your life is a seed, what could God do with it if you sow it into what He is doing? Imagine the multiplication that would come from the little that you may have when given to the right thing. Imagine what could happen if your passions met the purpose of God for your life. The possibilities are LIMITLESS.

In 2005, Shortly after the waters of Hurricane Katrina subsided, Lead Pastors of City Church New Orleans returned to their devastated residence in New Orleans, Louisiana, to begin the rebuilding process. With a committed heart the McManus' and a ministry team of about 30 people decided to rebuild the House of God before any work would be done on their own homes. During this time, within the hallowed walls of the desolate church, the Lord spoke a word to Pastor Owen instructing him to start a full time Ministry School. In the fall of 2006 IBC was open, and today this ministry training center has multiplied exponentially, and is sending men and women around the world for life-transforming ministry.

Pastor Jonathan Sorapuru is a product of the ministry of City Church. Himself an IBC Alumni with a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Ministies, has been given oversight of the Bible College as well as the pastorate over City Church Eastlake Campus University students. He believes his call is simple, "Raise up leaders to impact this generation." He and his beautiful wife have one son, Jonathan Jr.

Atiya Warthen is an Elder at City Church and a IBC Alumni with a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Ministries. Alongside her husband, Juston Warthen she Pastor's the rapidly growing City Church Westbank. As Executive Director of IBC, Atiya is fulfilling her dream of helping to raise up young people to fulfill their God given destinies.
