Jacob Reynolds has served as principal of the Irish Bible Institute (IBI) since it was established in 2000.
He graduated (Bachelor of Biblical Studies) at Peace River Bible Institute, Alberta, Canada and received a Masters of Divinity in Education and Biblical Studies at Providence Seminary in Winnipeg. He then had 8 years experience in pastoral ministry in Dublin before heading up the Irish Bible Institute.
At IBI Jacob teaches in the areas of Leadership, Church and Ministry. Last year he commenced a PhD at Trinity College Dublin, where he will examine the process of leadership training within the context of IBI. The aim is to isolate the factors, which influence the training of individuals to be effective at bringing transformation in their own lives and in the lives of those they serve and to evaluate to what extent the programmes delivered at IBI help or hinder that process.
