IBCM Conferences

The International Brethren Conferences on Mission (IBCM) bring together every four years the national leaders of local churches connected with the Brethren movement across the world for spiritual reflection, fellowship and, we pray, renewed experience of the Lord. The overall goal is the mutual encouragement of leaders in the movement in the different countries. The specific objectives of the conferences are:


  • To seek the presence and direction of the Lord together
  • To enable leaders from across the world to discover and encourage one another
  • To strengthen networking and fellowship
  • To raise awareness of the spiritual challenges of current trends and cultural developments
  • To share practical experience, ideas and methods
  • To encourage younger leaders
  • To encourage the development of regional conferences with similar objectives
Those active in the Brethren movement in its various branches throughout the world are welcome at the conferences.
