Connectional Ministries

Connectional Ministries

All Christians are called to minister. Ministry is what we do - both individually and as an organized church. The Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church works to create possibilities and hope for those who have neither. We offer this service in the name of Christ, for the transformation of the world.

Five Practices

The five practices of fruitful congregations and faithful living include Radical Hospitality, Passionate Worship, Intentional Faith Development, Risk-Taking Mission and Service, and Extravagant Generosity.
