"We've seen more change and growth in the last year, the last six months, than we've seen in the previous three or four years."

- Imagine Learning Community Pastor

"It's a way of changing your church culture that has the potential to really revolutionize your ministry.”

- Imagine Learning Community Lay Leader

"I would encourage anyone who wants to see a change in their ministry, a change in their church, a change in their people, to be involved in something like this."

- Imagine Learning Community Pastor


An Imagine Learning Community (ILC) is comprised of pastoral and lay leaders who want to grow in their ability to equip their congregations for fruitful whole-life discipleship.

Imagine Learning Communities are designed to be a conversation about how church leaders can help their congregations be equipped for mission wherever they are.  Understanding that for 110 hours a week, the church is in its scattered form, leaders need to make the most of the limited amount of time that the church is gathered together.
