Mission opportunities

The Conference Board of Laity, in partnership with the Cabinet, is encouraging local churches to engage in Mission Indiana 2015: Share Your Story as missional experience to impact communities across the Hoosier state. Churches are asked to plan local mission activities during the week leading up to AC2015, Saturday May 23 through Saturday, May 30. To share the mission opportunities, churches are asked to provide information to district lay leaders and assistants for others to participate. A special showing of the statewide movement will be planned during the conference. To register your church, please visit

Indiana Confessing Movement offers $10 dinner tickets to students and ministry candidates

The Indiana Confessing Movement is concerned that the high cost of meals at Annual Conference makes it difficult for students and ministry candidates to participate. For this reason, they are using donations to make tickets available to their dinner for $10 (instead of $28.50) for seminary students and ministry candidates. To get a discounted ticket, email Karen Ottjes at instead of ordering your ticket though the normal conference registration process. This year's speaker is Walter Fenton. You can learn more about the event here.
