IMA Newsletter gets a re-boot!

Faithful friends of the IMA might be wondering, "What happened to The Herald newsletter?"

Rest assured friends, the IMA newsletter is not gone. 2017 was a transitional year for the IMA, moving the Home Office and streamlining some things behind the scenes. This included this new website, a new web-based member services platform, and also kicking off a revision process for The Herald.

At the 2017 National Conference held at Destiny Church in San Antonio, Texas, the National Board approved Dr. Timothy Warner to be the new Editor for the IMA newsletter. Dr. Warner has taken on this role with enthusiasm, looking to breathe his vision and passion for the IMA into this publication.

The first edition is in the mail the first week of January 2018. The newsletter will continue to be revised and updated so that it can be a valuable resource for today's ministers. This publication pre-dates the IMA itself, and it's an honor to continue using this media to equip Kingdom workers for Kingdom work!

We will continue to look for ways to remain relevant to today's ministers, including making this publication available in digital formats. Our goal is to provide the newsletter's recipients the option to receive a copy either in print or digitally. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to serve all of the members of the IMA.

Josiah Hodgett, Member Services Coordinator
