Chairman of Board of Presbyters- District Elder Willie Shy
Grace be unto you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! I am so very grateful and honored to serve as your Chairman of The International Board Presbyters. As Chairman of the IBOP, I too would like to keep you Informed, Inspired, Involved with complete Solidarity. I add the word solidarity to the motto because we should be a band of brothers speaking the same things. Apostle Paul spoke to the Corinthian Church in 1st Corinthians 1:10, “Now I beseech you, Brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” The IBOP is a wonderful and strong Brotherhood. I need your prayers that the Lord will give me the wisdom and the strength to take this great body of men to the next level in Christ and that we may bless this great organization!
The International Board of Presbyters (IBOP) was organized in 1974 and is the largest ecclesiastical body of the Church of our Lord Jesus Christ (COOLJC). The purpose of this organization is to facilitate the work of the total ministry of the parent body through the concerted efforts and cooperation of it’s membership. This shall be accomplished through meetings, classes, seminars and publications.
With the implementation of the P.R.O.P.H.E.T. (Presbyters Receiving Ongoing Help and Ecclesiastical Training) initiative, our goal is to keep presbyters INFORMED, INSPIRED, and INVOLVED.
