Other Equiping Ministries
ICM works together with other boards in TRAC in running retreats and conferences to meet the needs of various groups.
The TRAC Sunday School Teachers’ Conference 2015 was birthed out of the formation retreat with the Sunday School Superintendents in 2014, upon realizing the need to equip the teachers and children ministry volunteers and leaders. In partnership with DUMC and SSMC, the first Sunday School Teachers Conference was organized in 2015. Almost 300 participants nationwide from both TRAC and churches of other denominations attended this conference. This was followed by Formation Retreat for Sunday School Superintendents 2016 and TRAC Children Ministry Conference 2017 in collaboration with DUMC and SSMC, where the plenary session was facilitated by Dr Bill Wilson.
Where Dreams Meet Visions
This initiative was in partnership with the Board of Laity and was birth as a response to the fruit of the conversations with Young Adults in the conference. This retreat in 2015 brought together 30 young adults with ten ‘seasoned saints’ for a time of listening, learning and growing as a community of faith.
Courage and Calling in Vocation Retreat
ICM initiated a new retreat called Courage and Calling in Vocation to help marketplace leaders both young and old to take a weekend away to pause and review their work life and vocational journey in the presence of God. Themes like ‘The Call to Be Human’, ‘The Heavenly Meaning of Our Daily Work’ and ‘Discovering My Calling’ are part of the design of the weekend.
Selah & Shalom
This retreat for TRAC worship coordinators was organized in partnership with the Board of Worship & Music. Besides offering a place to rest, reflect and be refreshed, this retreat aimed to build a community among leaders in worship ministry by sharing and discerning God’s leading in building up the worship life of their churches.
Finding Purpose Together
This is a formation retreat for Administrative and Support Staff of TRAC local churches. This interactive and reflective retreat was designed for development and training of support staff. It was also a time to celebrate and affirm the roles of this team who support the ministry of the church behind the scenes.
