MICHN (formerly 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. MiCHN believes that homeschooling is uniquely suited to this purpose, and we pray that the Lord would find us faithful in that task.

We Provide:

  • Conferences – We host over 2,000 attendees in Lansing annually on the third weekend of May at our two day INCH Conference- the Inspirational Networking Conference for Homeschoolers.

We also offer smaller “INCH on the Road” conferences around the state throughout the year.
  • Communication – We are connected to over 5,000 homeschooling families throughout the state, whom we regularly touch through email and social media, casting vision and sharing home education and discipleship ideas, information, opportunities, & resources from a Biblical worldview.
