IRCA 2023 Resources

Each day of the 2023 Conference in Dubuque, Iowa, USA began with worship and ended with prayers.

The aim of the conference was to allow plenty of time for participants to get to know one another, and talk together about challenges and achievements, possibilities and plans for the future.

Our purpose is to seek insights into the way God’s people are pursuing God’s will that the creation and people flourish.

Rev Dr Mark Yackel-Juleen
