Aspire

In seeking to be a 2 Timothy 2:2 Church, Imago Dei Church started Aspire. Aspire is IDC’s pastoral internship program for men that desire to be pastors and church planters. During this 2-year training (click to view the Aspire overview), interns meet weekly with the Elders of IDC for a time of instruction and discussion on the Office of Pastor, the Church, Mission, and Preaching. SEBTS students can receive up to 21 hours of seminary credit in Aspire. For more info, contact Nate@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.

IDC KIDS

K5 – 5th Grades

This group seeks to partner with parents in teaching and applying the big picture of the Bible. Each week, we tell stories from the Bible and gather in small groups by age to talk about Scripture together. In this group, we continue to teach the themes of Scripture while also challenging them to see the implications of the gospel on their lives.

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.
