IMN exists to build relationships on the foundation of the love of Jesus, and we believe that God takes joy in cultivating that foundation in families. It is a very special experience for families to get involved in serving together, and it provides parents with a unique opportunity to instill the value of serving others in their children as they raise them up in the way of the Lord. As Psalm 127 puts it, children are like arrows in the hands of a warrior, and parents are meant to be a part of the sharpening process. IMN family trips include service activities and spiritual cultivation that are approachable for all ages, and they are specifically tailored to the giftings and needs of each family to honor the high calling God has on their lives.
