GLOBAL MISSIONS

Imago Dei Church has a heart for the nations and desires to see all peoples changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. To that end, we want to raise up, assess, equip, and send international missionaries to engage unreached peoples with the Gospel.

Below is a basic outline of our sending process. For more information about the IDC Missionary Sending Process, please see here or email going@idcraleigh.com.

EQUIPPING

Aspire

Aspire is IDC’s pastoral ministry internship program for men that desire to be pastors and church planters. It is a 1-year (Jan–Dec) pastoral ministry internship with the IDC pastors. It includes 2 courses per semester, meeting on Mondays from 6-9pm. Course credit is available through SEBTS for those courses (but SEBTS credit is not required to be in the internship). Priority will be given to those who are relatively close to planting or taking pastoral roles (click to view the Aspire overview).

IDC members must submit an application to be considered for Aspire. Click here for the application. For more info, contact shane@idcraleigh.com.

Going

Imago Dei Church desires to send out faithful missionaries all over the world to live out the Great Commission and IDC’s PEACE PLAN. Going provides training and equipping for those desiring to serve (3 months or longer) in overseas missions and be sent by IDC. IDC elders ask that those who desire IDC to be their sending church go through this training within 18 months of being sent. This 1-year training (click to view the Going overview) will focus on international missions training, ministry and evangelism among internationals in RDU, and developing an IDC Advocacy team to support the missionary while they are overseas. For more info, contact Going@idcraleigh.com.

SERVING

If you are an IDC covenant member and interested in serving, we always have great need for hospitality and other volunteers.  Our hospitality team serves in the important role of welcoming first time visitors and connecting them with IDC members and growth groups, as well as other tasks.  If you would like more info about serving in these essential ways at IDC as a covenant member, please email brett@idcraleigh.com.

KIDS AND STUDENTS

For the safety of our children and volunteers, IDC Kids is currently not gathering in person. We will continue to provide online content for families to use at home. If you would like to receive this information, e-mail summer@idcraleigh.com.


What is IDC Students?
IDC Students is a ministry of Imago Dei Church which aims to encourage students to know and rejoice in the Gospel, experience biblical Community, and live compassionately on Mission.
Email Bradley Eaves (students@idcraleigh.com) for more information.

The Gathering

Middle and High School students meet every other Sunday afternoon from 3:30-4:45pm at the IDC building for the Gathering. At the Gathering, we study God’s Word and strive to know, love, and live for Christ together. The heart of this time is our student Growth Groups where students grow together and are discipled in the Gospel, Community, and Mission.

IDC College aims to equip college students for their current and future contexts to be gospel-centered in every facet of their lives, faithfully engaged in biblical community with the church, and mission-oriented as they intentionally impact the lives around them. For more information on getting involved, email college@idcraleigh.com.

Getting Involved

During COVID-19, IDC College is operating in a family group model that places students in a discipleship group consisting of no more than 8 students and a guy and girl group leader. These family groups meet on Sunday nights across the Triangle and are geared towards building community among college students from a variety of local colleges and universities, towards college-specific discipleship, and towards outreach to college-aged students.

COUNSELING

Imago Dei is committed to the shepherding care of all its members, including the provision of Christ-centered, biblical counseling when necessary. Counseling is provided by trained members of Imago Dei and is carried out under the oversight of the elders. The flow chart below describes how the counseling process is initiated and carried out. For more info, contact counseling@idcraleigh.com.

We believe counseling is a ministry of the word that falls under the authority of the elders. To ensure that the elders and growth group leaders are able to shepherd IDC members to the best of their ability, we ask that all counseling requests start with a conversation between you and your growth group leader or an elder to determine the best course of action.

If pursuing counseling is the wisest course of action for your situation, your growth group leader or an elder will refer you via email to the Director of Counseling to continue the process.

If you need to print out the paper work and fill it out by hand, please let the Director of Counseling know so arrangements to collect your forms can be made.

You will receive confirmation that your paperwork has been received within 24 hours of your submission, and your counselor will make contact to set up your first meeting within 72 hours of returning your forms.
