The Indiana State Conference (originally called the Indiana Diocese Fellowship) was organized in 2003 and made its debut on March 12, 2004 at Mount Bethel Apostolic Church in Indianapolis. Historically a part of the Tri-State Council, the PCAF churches in the state of Indiana were invited to become a part of the new ISC under the 7th Episcopal District. Sessions are held three times a year, with the summer session designated as a Holy Convocation and hosted by Bishop Gates, who is the diocesan, at Mt. Zion Apostolic Church in Indianapolis. In July 2013, the ISC held its first election of officers and also launched its first website. The ISC’s tri-annual meetings are designed to promote unity, leadership training, church growth, and fellowship.
