Jinger was raised at the Institute for Basic Life Principles along with her 18 siblings (IBLP). As per Duggar News, it is a nondenominational Christian group that is said to have cult-like beliefs.
The IBLP was established in 1961 by disgraced preacher Bill Gothard who upholds severe modesty restrictions and ultra-conservative ideals.
