Welcome to INCH.org!

Greetings and Blessings to you from Michigan’s Information Network for Christian Homes! We are so excited that you found us, and we hope you stop to look around and make yourself at home. INCH exists to come alongside families who want to see Christ glorified from one generation to the next. It is our sincere prayer that God will use every aspect of our ministry, including this website, for that purpose! We long to see Jesus Christ exalted as one generation proclaims His great mercies to the next. INCH believes that homeschooling is uniquely suited to this purpose, and we pray that the Lord would find us faithful in that task.

Our Vision

For the state of Michigan to be a place where Christian families have freedom to pass on their faith in Jesus Christ through Biblically-centered, parent-directed, home-based, privately-funded, life-long home discipleship.

Our Core Values

  1. Faith – Passing on the Christian Faith (teaching, modeling, and living Biblical Truth)
  2. Family – Protecting the Family (encouraging Biblical models for family discipleship, generational vision, child training, the marriage covenant, family-integrated worship, gender roles, etc.)
  3. Freedom – Preserving our Freedom (engaging with legislators, elected officials, other government agencies and political leaders.)
  4. Unity – Promoting Christian Unity (uniting Christian home educators, home education leaders, support groups and other homeschool ministries across Michigan– through cooperation, collaboration, and communication)

Our Mission

To provide information, instruction, and inspiration for Michigan’s home educators.

Our Method

To become a hub in Michigan that the Lord Jesus can use to strengthen and empower the Christian home discipleship movement, through:

  • Conferences – Establishing Christ-centered events to educate, encourage, exhort, and equip Michigan’s home educating families.
  • Communication – Casting vision and sharing home discipleship ideas, information, opportunities, & resources from a Biblical worldview.
  • Connecting – Creating a state-wide community of Christian homeschooling families, networked and unified for encouragement, support, and mutual benefit.
  • Cultivating Leadership – Assisting local Christian support groups and home discipleship ministries, equipping leaders, and building a strong leadership network throughout the state.
  • Providing a consistent voice in the Capitol – Engaging legislators and monitoring public policy, ensuring our continued freedom to home educate in Michigan thru our partnership with Citizens for Traditional Values.
