Staff are available to helpPosted on September 20, 2010 by efenster

The Indiana Conference has a team of individuals who can provide assistance as your church strives to carry out its mission to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. 

They can help churches seeking grants, studying the demographics of their communities, identifying key areas to better focus on, and becoming more fruitful.

  Mark Gough is the Church Development Director for the Indiana Conference.  In that capacity he works closely with the Bishop, Cabinet, and other Conference Directors.  He also is responsible for supervising the Associate Directors of Church Development, as well as staffing the conference Church Development Team. 

Mark provides direct support for the United Methodist churches in the Central District, North Central District, and East District (SR 36 and south).  He also works with the recruitment and cultivation of church planters.

  Doug Anderson is the Associate Director of Church Development  who works primarily with the fifteen largest churches in the conference.  He also provides training for cluster group leaders.

  Steve Clouse is the Associate Director of Church Development  who works primarily with churches in the Northwest and West districts.  He also provides support for churches needing technical assistance in the area of worship as well as the MissionInsite demographic tool.

  Ed Fenstermacher is the Associate Director of Church Development  who works primarily with churches in the North District, Northeast District, and East District (north of SR 36).  He serves as the conference liaison for the General Church’s Strengthening the Black Church for the 21 Century national plan.  He also is responsible for maintaining the communication tools that the staff relies on to keep local churches informed.
