YOUNG ADULTS

OUR HEART

We are a community of young adults who are passionate about life in Jesus. Building relationships, growing deeper in our faith, and having a good time is what we are about!


Our heart and vision is threefold: Gather, Serve, & Celebrate. These three things are part of our DNA and they happen through authentic community and dialog, consistent rhythms of service, and having fun with one another. We believe that when all these things happen true community is built and God's Kingdom glorified.

PLUG IN (COMMUNITY)

Both of our groups carry the vision of Illuminate with people that are in a similar stage of life you are. For eight weeks every semester (fall & spring) each group will GATHER (small groups), SERVE (service projects), & CELEBRATE (family dinners). 


ILLUMINATE COLLEGE AGE (18-21):

will begin in the fall


ILLUMINATE YOUNG ADULTS (22-30)

will begin in the fall

PLUG IN (INTENTIONALLY)

We believe there are times Jesus calls us to create space for Him to speak. These times are sacred, beautiful, unique, and intentional. They are also times for both groups, college & young adults to come together. Each semester we will have three of these sacred moments together as a whole group:

  • CELEBRATION PARTY

    Let's start with a bang! This is a time to party, to eat, to play, and to simply enjoy life because Jesus loves when his children have fun. We'll have free BBQ, games, prize drawings, campfires, s'mores, and amazing people to hang out with.

  • JOINED GATHERING

    The gathering is a sacred and holy time for both college-age and young adults to come together. In our busy lives taking times to slow down and hear from God are can be rare. This is a time to creatively explore our faith through interactions, reflection, silence, prayer, and community. 

  • CONTINUOUS SERVICE PROJECT

    In the past as Illuminate we've done one service project a semester. However, we believe that ministry happens best within the context of consistent relationships!


    We are excited to partner with Mission South Side this semester. We are looking for LOVING MENTORS to eat, play, and do some small group questions with youth from 6th -12th grade. 7 session, 14 hrs of your entire semester. That's it!
