We believe that getting outside your comfort zone to build new relationships can be so good for individuals and congregations alike. The Indiana-Kentucky Conference UCC (IKC UCC) maintains a long-standing partnership with the Evangelical Church of Westphalia (EKvW) that provides a foundation for meaningful cultural exchange.
The IKC-EKvW Partnership Working Group has several goals:
- Recruit adult and youth participants for the Young Ambassadors program
- Coordinate hosting throughout the Indiana-Kentucky conference area for visiting Young Ambassadors
- Provide hospitality for German guests, including pastors, lay persons, and church staff, visiting the region for conferences, sabbaticals, etc.
- Support participants from IKC UCC in the annual UCC Forum in Westphalia
We meet monthly by conference call and in-person 3-4 times per year either at the conference office or in homes around the Indianapolis area.

In the fall of 2018, we are thrilled to be hosting the first-ever multigenerational exchange reunion in Germany. If you or your congregation have participated in the Young Ambassadors program and want to learn more about the reunion, please contact John Krueger.
