IBC college

If you are a College student who is looking for a place to plug in while attending College, then IBC is a place for you. Or if you are a college student looking to learn more about Christianity, Jesus, the Bible, etc., then we believe IBC is a place for you. We believe that through life on life relationships and discipleship, that students can build a strong, healthy, and firm foundation in Christ that impacts the rest of their life.

IBC College Exists To:

Connect College students to Jesus, but also one another. This includes weekly events for fellowship, along with opportunities for someone who is investigating Jesus to come and learn more about what it means to follow Jesus.
Equip College students in practical ways to grow in your relationship with Christ while you are in school. We want to help you better know Jesus and make Him known to others. There are weekly Covenant Groups that you can get plugged into for discipleship, fellowship, and accountability.
Mobilize College students into opportunities post-grad. We want you to flourish in your relationship with Jesus long after college, regardless of the career path you choose. We want to serve you and help you tread the sometimes murky and difficult waters of adjusting to life after college.
We spend much of our time on the campuses of East Texas Baptist University, Wiley College, along with Texas State Technical College. We want to be where the students are, so we will have weekly and monthly events to serve college students. The best way to stay updated on all of our events is to follow our social media pages. We will post frequently to inform students of the various events and Bible studies we have available throughout the Fall & Spring semesters.


Experience worship Together

Sunday Morning at 9:45 p.m. and 11:00 a.m.

The purpose of the Worship Ministry of IBC is to lead people in Spirit-filled and life-changing worship. Our goal is to lead people into the presence of God and to have them respond to God in a way that causes them to make life-changing decisions. We understand that worship should be not only a Sunday event but a transformational lifestyle. Immanuel incorporates a variety of musical styles in our weekly worship services, and we offer the same worship format in both Sunday worship services.

life groups

Sunday Mornings at 9:45 a.m.

Life Groups are a Big Deal.
Life Groups are where life happens at IBC. It's where we really get to know people and invest in one another's lives. It's where we intentionally give and receive spiritual encouragement. It's where we connect with other believers for Bible study, prayer, and friendship.  We believe that real life change occurs as we are growing in a relationship with Christ along with others! In a Life Group you will have the opportunity to experience life, love, and laughter with each other.

Covenant groups

Sunday Evenings at 6:00 p.m.

Covenant Groups are a great way for you to get more connected to men and women your age who are also navigating the college experience while seeking to know Jesus more. These co-ed groups are designed for you to grow in your understanding of God's Word, Prayer, and Community. This is a wonderful opportunity for us to live life together and grow deeper in our relationship with God. We meet in homes across Marshall in order to provide the best environment to build relationships. Come join us for food, fellowship, and fun!
