#Imagine is a nationwide dream, and we bring young people together from everywhere! We unleash their energy, connect them with each other and we show them that they are not alone. We show them that there is hope and freedom in Christ. They aren’t prisoners of the past but pioneers of the future….
There is nothing like the #Imagine Movement in South Africa and the big highlight of the year: the #Imagine Experience. This weekend camp with thousands of teenagers in three different venues across South Africa is truly an unique concept. Our aim is to positively influence teenagers and youth leaders to be agents of change in our South African communities, while they are having a LOT of fun!
#Imagine started in 2014 and was attended by 6200 young people. The second #imagine was held during April 2015 and attended by more than 8000.Testimonies of life-change poured in and the date for #Imagine 2016 was set immediately. The Experience will take place 1 -3 April 2016. The 2016 #Imagine Experiences will be hosted in Gauteng, Western Cape and Eastern Cape. Three events will take place simultaneously sharing the same program and content. #Imagine engages teenagers and youth leaders with a dynamic program that consists of talks, worship, multi-media, spiritual encounter stations, workshops, group discussions, counselling, fellowship and crazy fun activities. They learn, laugh and experience Christianity in an exciting way!
The Experiences will be connected to each other via social media and live web-streaming. These festivals will also serve as a catalyst for community involvement initiatives sustained by local organisations and churches. Registration for the 2016 #Imagine festivals will open middle January 2016 via itickets.
Dream – Believe – Do
More than just an event
#Imagine is a movement: expanding on the positive results of the 2015 experiences #Imagine Namibia 2105 was held during August and testimonies of an impact on Namibia’s youth are awesome. A #Imagine Ignite 2016 leadership conference has also been held with great success.
A cd with the worship songs sung at ##Imagine can be ordered at www.biblemedia.co.za or purchased at nearest cum books. A dvd with #Imagine resources and sections of the talks and highlights from the Experiences has also been released, with a Bible-study guide to assist churches when they use this resource in their youth ministries. Copies can be ordered at firstname.lastname@example.org
#Imagine Kidz has just been added to the #Imagine movement to impact children in Grades 4-6 with holiday programmes during October 2016. Unique content, resources and training will be provided. Three community outreaches have also been planned for 2016. These events will provide opportunities for the teenagers to apply the tools they received at #imagine experiences in the real world.
To find out more about the numerous opportunities and to partner with the #Imagine Movement, particularly also through sponsorships, please visit the website: www.imaginemovement.co.za. One of the #Imagine 2016 goals is to be able to give children from all communities an opportunity to be able to attend one of the Experiences, and to also be able to provide the financial assistance that would enable this. Sponsorships and partnerships toward this end are welcomed!
Save the date: 1-3 April 2016.
