This year's theme: Teach Me To Walk In Truth 

Psalm 86:11- Teach me your way, O Lord, that I may walk in your truth

Teaching our children at home can be confusing, challenging, and complex in today's world.   But there are clear Truths we want them to learn... So come, walk with other Michigan homeschool families.  Find Strength, Encouragment, Connections, and Resources in community. 

At INCH you'll be inspired, informed, and instructed regarding all things homeschooling... plus discipleship, parenting, marriage, and more! 

INCH 2023 will be Michigan's 40TH ANNUAL statewide homeschool conference-- the

Inspirational Networking Conference for Homeschoolers, by MiCHN.

INCH is one of longest-running, most vibrant homeschool conventions in the nation– bringing together authentic speakers with change-your-life vision-casting messages, and exhibitors with passion and knowledge to equip you with tons of ideas, strategies, and resources.

You are not alone.... Our wonderful Exhibitors will provide you with resources and ideas to help you in your homeschool journey.  Our amazing Speakers will encourage you and give you practical ideas to continue walking this journey with your children.

We have a KID'S PROGRAM this year!

Our Children's Programming (https://www.thegiantcow.com/lansing-mi-michn-2023) this year includes a "Giant Cow" Program for ages 4-12 and a "Giant Calf" Program for ages 0-3. Read all about it and purchase tickets for your children  HERE ! :)


For our Teens, we are very excited about our Teen Leadership Corps (TLC) program for ages 13 and up to be lead by Unbound this year. Our vision is to train the next generation to be servant-leaders. We'll do this through instructional sessions, interactive projects, and practical hands-on experiences. Teens volunteer during the conference, providing lots of TLC (tender loving care) for our attendees, actually making INCH happen. Teens enrolled in the TLC receive a T-shirt, lunches and snacks, and must be available to learn and serve for the whole two and a half days... Thursday, Friday, & Saturday morning. Join our Teen Leadership Corp (TLC) HERE!
