Fresh Expressions: Imagine Day
Saturday, September 30, 2023 at 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Central Standard Time

Add to my calendar

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 across the Dakotas and Minnesota. Choose the location that works best for you, and bring your team! Register today.
