How to Get Involved with IMN


As IMN looks at its priorities for this year, we know it will be a year of challenges and opportunities. There are new questions we will all need to ask and examine the possible answers. We will need new skills and new ways of looking at our world and our congregations.
The IMN Teams have started their work for the year to bring you educational opportunities, information through the newsletters, ways to connect with your colleagues, and avenues to promote effective transitions in our faith-based community.
We ask you to prayerfully consider how you might be a part of IMN’s work this year, especially by serving on one of these Teams: Annual Conference, Continuing Education, Education, Member Support and Fundraising.

Please Click on the Get involved button to tell us where you might offer your knowledge and talents…on a Team or one of the other opportunities listed.
