The Indiana Conference Mission and Justice Ministries would like to partner with our Local Churches in identifying their mission field and/or provide support and resources to enhance existing ministries by offering this exciting event! Local Churches are encouraged to send representatives to learn, connect and be inspired on how to be more missional through educational workshops led by seasoned facilitators with many years of experience on their topics, exhibitor displays of established ministries, and a myriad of opportunities for networking and connecting.
