Imagine all God's people seeing our family responsibilities,
work, and community involvement as ministry.

Imagine congregations that equip and empower people
for ministry-not just in the church, but in all of life.

Imagine leaders and members finding a renewed sense of joy, purpose,
and vitality as we give ourselves away for the sake of the gospel.
