Because Jesus did not die toguilt trip.We are all figuring life out together.
True North is one out of wImagine’s two Core Partners. Based in South Jersey, their greatest strength is how they are brutally honest with themselves about how they are not perfect people, in pursuit, of a perfect God. They’re also the only Church (that I’m aware of) in the state who broadcasts to prisons and/or hosts Special Needs Sunday programming for teens.
LCBC is based in central Pennsylvania. Their greatest strength is how they’re incredibly welcoming, communicating using terms that would not intimidate non-Christians and not being afraid to talk about marginalized topics such as mental health.
Cornerstone is based in Silicon Valley in California. Their greatest strength is that while they’re quiet about their generosity, they give incredible amounts every year. They go book-by-book, not cherry-picking verses, extracting every nerdy spiritual gem from it.
Liquid is based on Northern & Central NJ (because Central Jersey does exist). Their greatest strength is how they aren’t scared for pushing the envelope in making Church more fun and accessible, especially reaching out to those with Special Needs.
Epic is based in Philadelphia, having a difficult path to physical growth due to city density. Yet in spite of those limitations, they’ve been growing because their diversity led to stronger preaching, more opportunities to serve, and non-intimidating communication.
Because Jesus did not die toabandon.Every life is able to change the world.
Larc School is one out of wImagine’s two Core Partners. Based in South Jersey, they are a Special Needs school who lives with complete conviction in doing the right thing. Their greatest strength is how they have a family like atmosphere where everybody knows everyone, working together in pursuit of creating a more inclusive world.
