Giving the World a "New" Approach to Life!

Training Centers

The Institute in Basic Life Principles (IBLP) owns several facilities that have been used for conferences, programs, events. The common goal is to strengthen individuals and families through sound Biblical teaching and character development opportunities and to demonstrate Christ’s love through serving.

Programs include:

  • Journey to the Heart—an event where young people can take time to grow in their relationship with God and learn how to love Him with all of their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
  • Air Land Emergency Resource Team (ALERT)—an intensive 3-phase Christian discipleship and career training program that equips young men with skills to aid in disaster relief and serve people in need.
  • Home Discipleship Network—Christ-centered discipleship resources centered around the Commands of Christ that helps support parents in raising their children to love the Lord Jesus Christ.

Most programs are conducted at the Big Sandy, TX campus.
