Core Pillars

Directing what we focus on

We cannot remain focused on what matters most without clear direction in this busy and conflicting world. These five Core Pillars complement each other in giving us direction on how to reach and refine our world.

wImagine Faith

We love, because He loves us

est. 2008
At our core is wImagine Faith. wImagine Faith drives us to live with love through all that we do. This love comes in the form of both truth and grace. That as we pursue a greater God, we also must not forget to reach people with love and grace through all that we do.

Love is always the answer. Here’s what we focus on.

Behind the Scenes

wImagine’s Core Beliefs aligns with all the Churches we partner with and they include:

  • God created & rules the universe as the Father, Son (ie. Jesus), & Holy Spirit.
  • People were made in the spiritual image of God, but hurt with an attitude of sin.
  • People will exist eternally with or without God. Heaven & Hell are real places.
  • Jesus is the Son of God and is co-equal with his father. He died on a cross and was brought back to life to save humans from sin. Jesus will return to reign as the King of King & Lord of Lords
  • Salvation from sin through Jesus is free, but must be accepted.
  • Baptism is a outwardly expression for the inwardly transformation which occurs when one believes in Jesus’ sacrifice
  • The Holy Spirit gives guidance and strength to each Christian upon salvation.
  • The Bible is God’s word to us.
  • Jesus Christ will come back to restore all things spoken by from the prophets
  • We are not worthy enough to judge anybody for their faults.
  • We must love/respect ourselves & each other because love defeats hate.

wImagine Family

We include, because He includes us

est. 2008
We value relationships that go deep and stay authentic. We nurture the relationships we have with our family and our friends, guiding each other through life. We especially value those with Special Needs because they matter so much to God’s plan and heart. We are designed to live life together because we are Better Together.

Michael began it all. Here’s what we focus on.

Behind the Scenes

Michael is half of wImagine’s Majority, and with my God, has created this philosophical framework which has given me focus in a blurry world, strength in a tired world, and wisdom in a confused world.

Anyone who intentionally hurts Michael and/or accidentally hurts Michael in pursuit of harming another element of wImagine, will be subject to immediate removal from my life without delay. This is in compliance with the Core Behavior: “We are love driven, not rule driven. We reject processes & opinions which defy our mission or majority”. These actions include, but are not limited to:

  • Using Michael’s weaknesses against him or to judge him, as opposed to using his strengths to create a better version of him
  • Denying Michael essential life necessities such as food, clothing, medicine/supplements, education, healthcare, etc.
  • Harming the relationship between Michael & I by denying me access to him, implying that how I ‘publicize’ the relationship is greater than what the relationship actually is, etc.
  • Any other action that has not been listed which successfully hurts Michael or our relationship.

Some organizations have strange and complex tests to prove if you truly do live with unconditional love, heck I used to lead the way in these complex tests. Ten years of wImagine revealed something to me and that all this could be simplified into one simple set of questions.

  • How do you love difficult/different people, like those with Special Needs, when they misbehave?
  • How do you perceive people when their relationships get faulty and tested?
  • Are you better than those with Special Needs, in accordance to His standards of excellence?

Loving Michael has changed me. I surrendered everything at the front door. My patience, my money, my time, my will, my emotions… everything. I surrendered it at the front door to reach the marginalized, to reach the lonely, to reach those with Special Needs, to reach those who have not heard, …to reach Michael.

wImagine Health

We care, because He cares about us

est. 2013
We live with responsibility to protect the health of ourselves, our mission, our environment, our ethics, and our finances. As we refine our imperfections, we do it not to protect who we are, but to move towards why we are. We exist to leave an Earth better than when we found it.

It’s about what’s inside, not outside. Here’s what we focus on.

Behind the Scenes

Our thoughts are the genesis to how we live and as such, wImagine is our root. wImagine is a mission that is intentionally to one step ahead of where we are today and one step closer to our Majority. This design ensures that both we and wImagine are on track to grow.

We honor ourselves enough to have enough desire to succeed. But we also respect ourselves enough to know that failure, in pursuit of wImagine’s increasing standards, is not an issue. We entrust that failure to grow us forward.

Some actions could jeopardize the mission, by taking us out via intoxication, injury, illness, addiction, or unethical outcomes. The specific actions to achieve one of these undesirable outcomes are many, but one thing is consistent — it should not happen.

We will go out of our way to ensure we don’t intentionally become a moron and make choices that lead to these. That said, we live in a fallen & broken world, and these issues will probably happen in our lives even if we do everything right. Above all else, we lift this mission towards higher standards and let it continue to mend our broken selves.

wImagine Advancement

We move, because He moves us

est. 2014
We create a love driven world by moving forward, because when we move, we move others with us. We move by advancing the depth and applying the breadth of our technical knowledge, in creating solutions which create a more love driven world.

originally est. 2008 as wImagine Academics

Let’s create a more love driven world. Here’s what we focus on.

Behind the Scenes

As lovingly copied from the Zen of Python, we adopt these principles in all that we code:

  • Beautiful is better than ugly.
  • Explicit is better than implicit.
  • Simple is better than complex, but complex is better than complicated.
  • Flat is better than nested and sparse is better than dense.
  • Readability counts.
  • Special cases aren’t special enough to break the rules, although practicality beats purity.
  • Errors should never pass silently, unless explicitly silenced.
  • In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.
  • There should be one obvious way to do something (although that way may not be obvious at first).
  • Now is better than never, although never is often better than right now.
  • If the implementation is hard to explain, it’s a bad idea. But, if it’s easy to explain, it may be a good idea.

wImagine Empowerment

We empower, because He empowers us

est. 2020
We unblock people so that they can fully follow His plan for their lives. We do that by showing honor and love to everyone, and going the extra mile for those who have been historically marginalized, filling in neglect and abandonment from systematic failures.

originally est. 2008 as wImagine Public Relations & est. 2013 as wImagine Leadership. Yeah, Public Relations was a thing. Goes to show you how broken wImagine was.

The last will be the first in His kingdom. Here’s what we focus on.
