FACEBOOK POST: HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO PLANT A CHURCH WITH SMALL GROUPS ALL OVER THE WORLD???  I MEAN, THINK ABOUT IT… SMALL GROUPS LOCALLY IN COMMUNITY AND SERVING THEIR COMMUNITIES.  IT ACTUALLY REMINDS ME OF WHAT MY FRIENDS JUSTIN KLATT AND JANAE KLATT ARE DOING! ***THE WEEK CORONA VIRUS STARTED SHUTTING DOWN CHURCH MEETINGS

MY KIDS AND I LOVED IMAGINE FROM DAY ONE.  WE WERE THERE IN THE BEGINNING WHILE PASTORS JUSTIN AND JANAE WERE STILL MAKING PLANS, AND THEN WE BECAME PART OF THE STUDIO TEAM.  AFTER I GOT MARRIED WE UNEXPECTEDLY HAD TO MOVE OUT OF STATE WITH NO WARNING.  I LOVED THAT WHEN EVERY SINGLE PART OF MY LIFE HAD TURNED UPSIDE DOWN, I COULD FIND STABILITY AND COMFORT IN TAKING MY PASTORS AND MY CHURCH FAMILY WITH ME.  IT IS AMAZING TO BE ABLE TO FIND COMMUNITY WHEREVER I AM.

JENNIFER M. - VICTORVILLE CA

COMMUNITY BUILDER DIRECTOR, IMAGINE CHURCH GLOBAL

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE MORE CHURCHES DO WHAT IMAGINE IS DOING WITH ENGAGING PEOPLE IN COMMUNITY, BUT UNFORTUNATELY, MOST CHURCHES SEEM TO BE STILL GOING WITH THE TRADITIONAL APPROACH OF LIVE-STREAMING.

BRANDON G. - MICHIGAN

ONLINE CAMPUS PASTOR

BECAUSE WE ARE A BAND, WE HAVE FRIENDS ALL OVER AMERICA, BUT FOR 4 YEARS OF TOURING WE HAVE NOT HAD ANY KIND OF CLOSE CHURCH COMMUNITY UNTIL NOW (IMAGINE CHURCH).  NOW WE GO TO CHURCH WITH THE SAME PEOPLE AND SAME CHURCH NO MATTER WHAT CITY OF STATE WE ARE IN.  THIS IS AWESOME!

I LOVE YOUR VISION AND AM INSPIRED BY THE WAY YOU GUYS ARE DOING CHURCH.  IT IS LIKE THE CHURCHES IN ACTS, BUT WITH TECHNOLOGY. AND THINGS LIKE THE CORONA VIRUS OR OTHER THINGS THAT COULD HAPPEN IN THE WORLD WILL NOT EFFECT HOW YOUR CHURCH PEOPLE MEET AND FIND COMMUNITY WITH EACH OTHER.

FACEBOOK POST: CORONAVIRUS THREATENING SUNDAY MORNING CHURCH SERVICE?  CLOSING CHURCH DOORS? PSH…AIN’T NO THING.  IT’S CHURCH AS USUAL FOR IMAGINE CHURCH.  IT DOESN’T EVEN HAVE DOORS TO CLOSE, BECAUSE THEY ARE AN ONLINE CHURCH!  THEIR AIM IS TO OFFER FELLOWSHIP, DISCIPLESHIP AND COMMUNITY TO PEOPLE WHO WORK ON WEEKENDS, WHO LIVE THAT RV LIFE, WHO TOUR, WHO HAVE HEALTH RESTRICTIONS, WHO HAVE SOCIAL ANXIETY AND ANY OTHER CONTEXT YOU CAN THINK OF THAT PREVENTS ANYONE FROM ATTENDING A CHURCH WITH FOUR WALLS.  PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THE RECORDED INTERACTIVE SERVICE TOGETHER, PAUSING IT TO DISCUSS BUILT IN DISCUSSION QUESTIONS DURING COMMUNITY TIME, PARTAKING OF COMMUNION AND CARRYING ONE ANOTHER’S BURDENS BY PRAYING FOR ONE ANOTHER… TUNING IN FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD!  BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF TIME GOD SET UP PASTORS JANAE AND JUSTIN KLATT FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS!

I LOVE IMAGINE CHURCH.  NOT ONLY DOES IT REINFORCE THE TRUTH, THAT ‘THE CHURCH IS THE PEOPLE, NOT A PLACE’, BUT THEY HAVE HARNESSED TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD THE COMMUNITY OF FAITH THAT GOES BEYOND THE BOUNDS OF GEOGRAPHY AND TIME ZONES.

WHAT A GREAT CONCEPT FOR CHURCH!  I LOVE THE COMMUNITY IDEA.  IN FACT, NOW, AFTER HEARING ALL ABOUT IMAGINE AND CHECKING OUT ONE OF YOUR SERVICES, I GET A CLEARER IDEA FOR RIPPLES CHURCH (HER NEW CHURCH PLANT). WHAT A VISION YOU HAVE, MAY IT BE GREATLY BLESSED.

PASTOR MARYLOU A. - LAS VEGAS, NV

LEAD PASTOR, RIPPLES CHURCH

PASTOR JANAE IS WHAT FIRST DREW ME TO IMAGINE.  I LOVE TO HEAR HER SPEAK AND COULD LISTEN TO HER ALL DAY.  I WAS PART OF THE IMAGINE STUDIO TEAM IN PHOENIX, BUT HAD A SUDDEN MOVE TO FLORIDA. AT FIRST I FELT LIKE I WANTED TO FIND A TYPICAL CHURCH IN FLORIDA, BUT I DECIDED TO JOIN THE IMAGINE MONDAY NIGHT VIRTUAL COMMUNITY UNTIL I FOUND A CHURCH. THEN THE UNEXPECTED HAPPENED… I STARTED BUILDING COMMUNITY WITH THE PEOPLE IN THE MONDAY NIGHT COMMUNITY. WE TALK, WE LAUGH AND WE PRAY.  I WAS NOT EXPECTING TO ENJOY THIS TYPE OF CHURCH AS MUCH AS I DO.  I LOVE THAT ONE OF MY VERY BEST FRIENDS FROM TUSCAN AZ HAD JOINED MY CHURCH COMMUNITY AND I GET TO GO TO CHURCH WITH HER EVERY WEEK FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY.
