AIMLogo-Impact-color-600x267Two United Methodist Conferences recently met with the Indiana Conference Church Development team to learn how to bring IMPACT to churches in the areas they serve.  Since 2016 Indiana has been using IMPACT to help revitalize and bring hope to small-membership churches, and other Conferences are noticing. Randy Anderson, Associate Director of Church Development, stated, “Small churches make up 70% of the church nationwide. Focus tends to be given to programs for medium and large churches, and the smaller churches are either overlooked or given a watered-down version of what worked at the large churches. When other Conferences hear that Indiana has created a process which entirely focuses on the revitalization of the small church, it is something they want to use.”

Since IMPACT is contextualized for small churches, it can be used in other regions and geographical areas. As other regions experience IMPACT, we pray there will be more stories of local congregations experiencing renewed hope for the mission and their vision.

To learn more about IMPACT within our Indiana Conference, visit IMPACT or visit the Church Development booth at Annual Conference for further conversation.
