IPM’s Annual Luncheon, Cleveland

Our Annual Luncheon is held each year in Cleveland, and provides a chance for local supporters to gather and learn more about IPM’s work. We feature a keynote speaker from one of our Regions of focus each year, and present the Richard E. Sering Award to those who foster the same dedication to promoting justice, peace, and hope around the world as Rev. Sering did for over 30 years as a friend and supporter of IPM.


Our Namaste event, held every Spring in Cleveland, is a chance for IPM family and friends to celebrate together the work of IPM and our Project Partners. There is food, music, dancing, handicrafts, a silent auction, and other activities for those of all ages.

Annual Event in St. Louis

IPM holds an annual event each year in St. Louis, Missouri, the city of our founding, in recognition of IPM’s remarkable history. We inaugurated this event in 2008 and presented the First Annual Mayer-Strege Award, named for our founders. This event has become an annual tradition, and a great way for those new to IPM to learn about our founding mission and vision.
