Event Type: 



MIBF is a family of spiritual formation, authentic relationships, mutuality and legacy led by Bishop Kenneth C Ulmer. We are a spiritual family of priority, unconditional love and acceptance; which fosters a place of safety and support. We believe in organic discipleship through teaching, spirit-led activity and doing life together. We are a supportive, confidential, and grace-centered environment that provides a place for sharing and accountability. We believe in a circle of leadership. We are stewards of wisdom, revelation and anointing that has come before us, and we have the responsibility to pass it down to the next generation, so that the chain is unbroken.
