Jesus said in Matthew 25, "I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."
We seek to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, welcome the lonely, clothe the unclothed, care for the sick and visit the prisoners. Jesus' number one priority was others, and it is also our priority.
The heart and passion of ImagineNations Church is to see non-Christians all over the world become totally committed followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Our first priority is to see Jesus' last command, "to make disciples of all nations", fulfilled.
Through the generous missions giving of our church we support a variety of missions projects locally and around the world.
Since 2010, we have coordinated the Red Frogs program in Darwin on campus at Charles Darwin University and been Red Frog team members for 'Schoolies Week' in Australia and Indonesia.
SCHOOL SCRIPTURE & CHAPLAINCY
We currently volunteer and teach religious education and pastoral care at Nakara Primary School and two Christian High Schools. Nicole Davis is also the chaplain at Mararra Christian School one day a week. We aim to continue our work in the schools and increase the amount of schools we work in.
In Term 1 of 2017 we launched Mainly Music. It is a music and rhythm based program for little one up to five years old, and is held at Palmerston Christian School.
If you have children at home with you on a Wednesday, we'd love to have you at our Mainly Music playgroup. This is a fun and engaging music based playgroup followed by morning tea and free play with toys. The venue is fully contained, air conditioned and there is a baby change facilities available to cater for kids from 0 - 5 years.
The playgroup is $5 per family, and is held at Palmerston Christian School every Wednesday during school term from 9am - 10:30am. If you'd like further information, contact us or you can also join our Mainly Music Facebook group for updates, photos and more.
ALOR RADIO STATION
Our heart is to spread the gospel and the Good News about Jesus to Everyone Everywhere. Through our partners in Indonesia we have the opportunity to broadcast the message of hope to a whole island.
Alor island is just north of Timor and we are helping to construct a radio station that will reach all 200,000 people of the island with community education, health programs and the gospel message.
Cataract blindness affects around 18 million people worldwide and around 90% of those people are in poor countries. This disability forces people deeper and deeper into poverty.
This can all change with a simple 12 minute operation.
We are working with Christian Blind Mission to provide cataract surgeries for men, women and children in Indonesia.
DESTINY RESCUE HOMES
Across the world there are an estimated 27 million slaves. Many of them are young girls forced or tricked into sexual slavery in South East Asia.
In partnership with Destiny Rescue we have established Ken Brown Rescue Home and the Lorna Hunt Rescue Home in Thailand and Laos respectively where girls who have been rescued are rehabilitated and given a chance to start anew.
We are in the process of establishing our third home, the Noel Messer Memorial Rescue Home, in Laos in 2017.
CAMBODIA - WELLS
Water is such a vital part of life and often in poorer countries access to good, clean water is difficult for many people. This causes issues of health, education, safety and reinforces poverty in many areas.
We are helping to bring change to communities by constructing wells in villages that do not have access to clean water. These wells bring transformation to communities and open the door for our partners to plant churches as well.
D.R. CONGO - HOSPITAL
In the Democratic Republic of Congo good health care is extremely hard to find. And when people do find this health care they are often unable to afford the fees to pay for the care they so desperately need.
Over the past several years we have been helping to build the capacity of a hospital in Bukavu, South Kivu. We have completed construction of a maternity ward, purchased an ultrasound and X-Ray machine and helped with training staff to provide quality medical care to the people of Bukavu.
We will continue to help provide support to this hospital so that it can make a lasting change in this community.
BURUNDI - WIDOW'S HOMES
Widows in Burundi are outcasts in society. Once they lost their husband the lose all status and are left to totally fend for themselves often caring for many children who are orphans as well.
We are helping the widows of Burundi to see that someone cares for them and helping to give them a hand up by providing them with a home. These homes bring much needed protection for these women and allow them to begin life again.
INDONESIA - PROVISION INTERNATIONAL
Working with John and Made Stevens on the Island of Bali, we have partnered together since 2012 to help build a ministry training centre, provide computers for English classes and construct water tanks.
BINH DAO VILLAGE - VIETNAM
Poverty is something that deeply affects people in ways that are much more than just material possessions. In Vietnam more than 13 million people are living in poverty and many of them have no hope of changing their circumstances.
We have the opportunity to help to lift a whole community out of poverty. Binh Dao village in the Quang Nam province has a population of 8,079 people where the average income is $940AUD/yr.
Our team works with the community leaders to help them identify the key areas of need which will bring a lasting change to their community. Then we help supply them with the means to make that change in areas such as water projects, health programs, skills training, health and safety training and much more.
Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 “Go into all the world and make disciples…” We believe the best way to do this is to empower local, indigenous church planters to work in their own nations to spread the gospel and establish churches. We currently work in 7 nations supporting church planters with the goal of collectively planting at least one church every day.
We work in partnership with dMaker Indonesia to support church planters to work across the 15,000 islands of Indonesia. One of our church planters works specifically in the prison system in Denpasar to help minister to the prisoners there.
We are working with the underground church in China to help plant churches in the cities and in rural areas of the most populated nation on earth.
NORTH EAST INDIA
Through our support we have a network of house churches throughout North East India in states such as Assam, Manipur and Megalaya. It is multiplying rapidly and planting hundreds and hundreds of churches and baptising thousands of people each year.
We are supplying motorcycles to church planters in Sierra Leone that allow them to plant at least 10 churches. These motorcycles help the church planters to reach a greater area and also allow the to be self supporting in the work that they do.
