Intentional Interim Conference

May 15, 2019 - May 16, 2019
Hillsdale, MI

“The shape and requirements of transitions today: lead, follow, or get out of the way!”

Serving as an IIP today is not like it was five years ago or twenty years ago! The new contexts and post-Christendom culture demand missionary thinking and transitions in ourselves and our people that go beyond a change in pastors. Together we explore and discover the barriers and breakthroughs of God’s moving us to see Him at work anew and join Him in the process.
