Our logo is based on this ceramic tile from the Armenian Quarter of Jerusalem. The Armenian community in Jerusalem is known for their ceramic and tile works with their unique style, well-represented by this tile.
IPMN was mandated by the 2004 General Assembly and in 2006, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) organized a trip to Israel/Palestine under the Peacemaking Program called "Steps Towards Peace." That trip is now affectionately called "the trip of 100" and it formed the foundation of our membership. This tile was gifted to a staff member who helped organize that trip.
The buildings depicted on the tile represent all three Abrahamic faiths; we have stylized it and simplified it for our logo, which was rendered by Martha Reese.
There are many Armenian producers of wonderful tiles and pottery in Jerusalem. For some examples, see these links:
