To honor President Steve Brown and Vice President Wes Ross, and to solidify their legacy of faithfulness to the Lord and to his Word, BICS has published a book!

At the retirement celebration in their honor, we were pleased to announce the release of “Standing on the Promises: Essays in Honor of Stephen C. Brown and Wesley A. Ross.”

This 16-chapter volume features essays from friends, colleagues, mentors and students that are built upon the same theological foundation so instrumental to the success of BICS – a foundation that has, as its cornerstone, the blood-bought promises of our faithful God.

Friends, family, colleagues and students will be heartened by this tribute to two men who have sacrificed greatly for the kingdom of God. More importantly, all who read this book will be encouraged to continue standing on the promises of God.

The book is now available online in hardcover, paperback and e-book editions through, and other retailers. Check it out here!
