Imago Christi helps people Experience the Love of God in Rhythms of Transformation.
The Ministry of Imago Christi
• We will minister to, mentor and train Christian leaders who are in a position to train and influence others, in order to intentionally multiply leaders in spiritual formation.
• We will foster spiritual community among Christian leaders in churches, mission agencies and "Christian professions" (counselors, coaches, spiritual directors, seminary instructors, etc.), locally, regionally and internationally.
• We will coach and mentor church leaders to help the Church (in all of its manifestations) become the place of spiritual formation that ministers to people, in every phase of the Christian journey.
• We will create resources and networks to train and support Christian leaders in each of these spheres and at various levels of the development of these aspects of spiritual formation ministry.
• We will also help to foster a broad spiritual formation movement by reaching out to other spiritual formation entities and ministries, and establish collaborative relationships with these goals in mind.
Imago Christi is called to prophetically live out and invite Christian leaders into an intimate and transforming relationship of love with the Trinity so that the love of God will overflow through the Church into a world that desperately needs Him.
We endeavor to support leaders with resources, coaching, and relationships, which facilitate and encourage spiritual formation that reflects the Christ-likeness of Jesus' intimacy with the Father, whereby leaders will learn to follow Jesus specifically in the transformation of the Church, whose love for God will overflow into a world longing for intimacy with God.
As the Lord leads and guides us together in First Order Community, we envision the core community of Imago Christi functioning in its Second Order calling as "an order of spiritual formation missionaries," fostering the spiritual formation of Christian leaders, nurturing spiritual formation communities, and helping the Church embody spiritual formation ministry.
Imago Christi is a spiritual formation ministry team in the ChurchNEXT collective of Church Resource Ministries (CRM, Anaheim, CA). Imago Christi Core Members are staff members of a missions organization, who raise financial support to fund their ministry, so that we can minister freely.
The founding principles and commitments of the Imago Christi Community.
If you are interested in joining the Imago Christi Community, please make every effort to participate first in an Imago Christi Discovery event. Then you should familiarize yourself with the Foundational Documents and with our parent organization, its ethos and structures.
Please give to the CRM/Imago Christi Team Travel and Development Fund, in order to support the efforts of the Imago Christi Community in developing resources and presenting them in locations worldwide.
Individual Imago Christi Community Members are "spiritual formation missionaries," staff members of CRM, who raise financial support to fund their ministry, so that we can minister freely to global Christian leaders without charge. You can partner in the ministry of an individual Imago Christi Core on their Community Member page on this site.
