This area of ICC is varied in the way it is carried out, but the overall goal is to serve the Christian groups and churches in the Ishinomaki area. This is done in four different, key ways:

  • Networking: ICC provides opportunities for ministries to network and share updates with one another through a monthly meeting called Ishinomaki Network Meeting.
  • Spiritual refreshement: ICC provides a space in which the ministries gather and pray together, lifting each ministry up along with the city of Ishinomaki.
  • Growth: ICC meets one-on-one with leaders from the different groups periodically throughout the year to understand the various, current needs of each group. This provides ICC with concrete ways to support growth in the ministries.
  • Corporate gatherings: Yearly, ICC coordinates city-wide gatherings for the church and community. Two main events are the Ishinomaki Gospel Festival and the 3.11 memorial. ICC is also behind the Ishinomaki Operation Christmas Child initiative in the city.
