IMAGINE PROJECT - U.S.

In 2012, a small cadre of believers at historic Park Street Church in downtown Boston began using Imagine Church as the basis of a ministry to help Christians integrate their faith and their everyday life.  Two years later, after a visit by Neil Hudson to Boston where he hosted an ‘Imagine on the Road’ event, it was clear that the message of whole-life discipleship was resonating with other leaders in the area.

Thus, in 2014 the Vere Institute—named after the tiny street in London where LICC is located—was born!

In 2015, the first Imagine Learning Community was established in New England.  Pastoral and lay leaders from six churches agreed to commit to a year-long process, exploring how their churches could realize the vision.  This began a multi-year journey of sharing the vision across the U.S.

TESTIMONIALS

"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."

- Pastor, Imagine Learning Community

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

- Lay Leader, Imagine Learning Community

"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."

- Pastor, Imagine Learning Community

"It has caused me to think differently about how we communicate our role in God's mission to people who come through our doors, believers as well as non-­believers."

- Pastor, Imagine on the Road

"I haven't found anything that more effectively communicates what it means to follow Jesus on a day-to-day basis in every aspect of your life."

- Pastor, Imagine Learning Community

"It's about being a whole life disciple, in the workplace, in your neighborhood, at home, wherever you happen to be."

- Lay Leader, Imagine Learning Community

"It exceeded my expectations. I was hoping it would be practical, but I walked away more encouraged than I thought I would be by the ministry philosophy and practices that I could begin to instill immediately."
