IMAGO is a theological and ministry development project created by Power to Change – Students (P2C). The mission of IMAGO is to help a generation of young people understand, live, and communicate the gospel in a biblical, embodied, and culturally relevant way by addressing the question “What does it mean to be human?” The word IMAGO is taken from the latin imago Dei which first appears in Genesis 1:26-28 when God makes humanity in his image.

As P2C celebrated 50 years of ministry in Canada, the ministry recognized that Canadian culture has changed radically in the past several decades. Today’s students are in the midst of significant cultural and worldview shifts which are accompanied by a new set of values, assumptions, and questions and are contributing a crisis of identity.

IMAGO was created to help students discover Jesus by connecting the gospel to conversations about human identity, purpose, and destiny that students are already having in light of major social issues such as gender, sexuality, race, and technological development.

WHAT's MY ROLE?

I am co-leading IMAGO over the course of the next two-years by overseeing a team of P2C staff from across Canada as we investigate the question “What does it mean to be human?” Through a process of prayer, research, and consultation I will be responsible to help lead this team write a theological framework for understanding what it means to be human from a biblical perspective. With this framework as a guide, our task will then be to develop new learning experiences for staff and students as well as creative approaches to evangelism that incorporate themes of identity into conversations about Jesus and the gospel.
