ICP partner contribution will be replaced Everything costs money. Anyone who leads a church or participates in community life, in whatever field, knows this. ICP also incurs costs; for material, productions, employees, administration, rent, and so on.

The 2021/2022 season is all about connection for ICP. We want to focus strongly on the connection we have as Christians who are committed to the mission of ICP 'To disciple the nations.' ICP-connected is a package of activities for leaders and church members, with which we consciously search for that which connects us and strengthen it by paying attention to it with each other. Starting pioneer churches benefit from the lessons learned in the older church plants. Young pastors want to learn from experienced leaders. Experienced leaders want to be inspired by young pastors.

We have developed a complete package consisting of intervision, network meetings and training. We look forward to meeting you at these meetings and activities. Together we can make a big move to reach our common
