Join United Methodists from across Minnesota and the Dakotas for Imagine Day with Rev. Dr. Michael Beck, a United Methodist pastor and director of re-missioning for Fresh Expressions US. Bring a team to kick off a year-long journey focused on reaching new people in new places in new ways. Over the next year, you'll receive just-in-time resources, group coaching, and tools to create a fresh expression of church in a community venue or public space in your area. The only requirement is to bring a team of at least three people from your church so you have the support you need to be successful.
You’ll leave Imagine Day with a renewed call and passion for reaching new people, a people map and some listening tools, and next steps to employ when you return home.
Imagine Day will take place at hub sites, September 30, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. CDT, across the Dakotas and Minnesota. Choose the location that works best for you, and bring your team!
