2017 IMAGINE LEARNING COMMUNITY OVERVIEW
Imagine Learning Communities (ILCs) are comprised of both pastoral and lay leaders from a variety of churches in a region who want to grow in their ability to equip their congregations for fruitful whole-life discipleship. It is designed to be a conversation about how church leaders can come together to help their congregations be equipped for mission wherever they are in their daily lives.
