The purpose of this organization shall be to provide fellowship and unite the efforts of the ministerial community in the church of Jesus Christ on matters affecting our society. Therefore, we are a purposed-driven organization. We have four obectives:
(1) Share our Christ
(2) Serve the Clergy
(3) Strengthen the Churches
(4) Support the Community
Our vision is to build a local and regional network of likeminded ministers to empower our communities and to exalt our Christ by taking full advantage of technology and forming partnerships with the community at large.
The mission of the IMA is to unite and equip our ministers to serve effectively and efficiently in ministry in their local church and in the community at large.
We are organized to reach first and foremost the African-American clergy. Secondly, we reach out and network with other individuals, organizations and groups that share our values and interests. We call this the Jerusalem’s principle (Acts 1:8). We concentrate our energy and efforts not to be exclusive but to be effective.
