Equipping and encouraging every member of our church family in the life-long process of following Jesus is a primary value at IPC. Each week we offer a wide variety of Bible studies, education classes, discipleship courses and adult fellowship groups designed to meet the needs of each stage of the journey. Not only will you find excellent teachers, but also warm and welcoming communities striving together towards maturity in Christ. Whether you are taking your first steps into the Christian life or are a long-time pilgrim, you will find a place to connect.
Ask A Christian
Next workshop date: TBD
While many of us know and are excited about our mission to make disciples who make disciples, the actual practice of discipleship may not come naturally or easily. It takes intentionality and learning alongside others — and our Discipleship Training workshops are here to help. Workshops are open to anyone interested in growing as a disciple and being trained to disciple others. Components include biblical teaching, equipping and practice with simple discipling tools, sharing stories of life on God’s mission, group discussion, and mutual encouragement and prayer.
Discipleship Training workshops are usually held the second Tuesday of each month. For more information, contact Gabe Fung.

[Classes available upon request]
How comfortable are you about talking about God with people in your world? Is it even possible? It is. We will learn, not only how to converse about God, but also how to listen and to pose good questions. This class will help you respond thoughtfully to major intellectual objections to Christianity.
Each two-hour session covers reading topics, study, discussion and practice in conversation.
To sign up, contact Don Barkley.
Ask a Christian
Long-time journalist Hugh Hewitt asks veteran parachurch apologist and missionary Don Barkley about the fundamentals of the faith. Here are some questions and topics that will be covered:
- Who is Jesus? And how do we know he is Jesus?
- The resurrection: What if Jesus didn’t rise from the dead? But what if he did?
- The Bible: Is it different than other sacred books?
- The message of Christianity: Good news or good advice?
- Do all roads lead to heaven? Are the religions all that different?
- What does the so-called Christian life look like? Why do so many Christians fall into "major scandal"?
