Spring 2016 Conference

Global Church for a Global World

GLOBAL-CHURCH-header-logo2-582x175

Hong Kong, April 11-14

One out of every eight people now live outside their home country. As these global citizens seek to find meaning away from home, many are coming to faith in places where the church is both multi-cultural and cross denominational. International Church pastors from around the world will be gathering in Hong Kong to declare together, it’s time, we need, “a global church for a global world”.

Come explore with us what this growing trend means for the greater body of Christ. Hear from International Church leaders their “best practices” in dealing with the unique issues that we wrestle with as global church pastors. We look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong, April 11-14, 2016.

“We had some fuel going but MICN was the spark that ignited our IC to become missional. The language, phrasing, encapsulating big ideas into capturing statements made it transferable to our IC context.”

“The only place I can meet with true peers! MICN is my home base, which is not geographic or organization, but a solid group of good friends.”

Senior Pastor / Evangelical Church of Bangkok

"In the never-ending 'parade' of ministry to the transient diaspora of international churches, how refreshing it is to find a group of like-minded practitioners who minister to that 'parade'."

"It felt like we were planting a new church each year and with such high turnover we could have easily lost focus but our friends at MICN helped us understand that the challenges of the IC are our greatest ministry oppertunities."
