LIBRARY & COMPUTER FACILITIES
The UBI library provides students with books and online resources (periodicals, journal articles). It is available for on and off-campus students.
UBI also has computer and printing facilities for online research and typing papers.
The UBI community meets twice a week for corporate worship. Our worship services are multi-lingual, with English and isiZulu translation of preaching and music. We welcome lecturers as well as off-campus visitors to encourage us through sermons. We have academic chapels each term in which students can ask questions about controversial topics. Select chapel messages can be found on our podcast.
KHUTHAZANANI GROUPS & MENTORING
At UBI your spiritual formation is important to us. On-campus students will be connected with a small group of students and staff members in a Khuthazanani (encouragement) group. These groups meet bi-weekly for prayer and fellowship.
Each student is also paired with a staff mentor. Mentors meet bi-weekly and offer a chance for students to develop a relationship with a staff member for personal growth and encouragement.
SISEBENZA KANYEKANYE - STUDENT WIVES MINISTRY
UBI has a special ministry to the wives of students (either on-campus or at home), praying for and encouraging these future pastor’s wives. Student wives are paired with staff members as prayer partners. SKK hosts meetings for wives and couples who live locally during the year. During graduation week, wives are invited to campus for a week of spiritual encouragement, community support from other wives, and to celebrate the completion of their husband’s studies.
The UBI choir performs in chapel and at UBI functions, as well as at area churches and open air events. Students can select the choir as an elective fieldwork subject for credit.
