In March 2002, IPC as a congregation "adopted" the Shan people group of Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand. This adoption is basically a commitment by our IPC family to help spread the gospel among a people group who do not yet know Jesus Christ.
IPC has financially contributed to the creation and distribution of literature in the Shan language, supported the radio ministry reaching out to thousands who are in remote areas, supported some missionaries involved in the work with the Shan, supported the education of Shan children, and contributed towards leadership training seminars, evangelistic work and church planting amongst the Shan people.
