                    Vision Twenty13-18: Destiny iChurch

                    We are connected with Christians worldwide through the Destiny iChurch…

                                                          • Destiny iChurch is a future expansion of our ministry. It will be more than another Internet resource center where people watch services and download content.
                                                          • Destiny iChurch will create real time interaction between main campus members and iChurch members worldwide: with live video chatting stations throughout our facilities, and multiple flat screens hanging in the sanctuary where iChurch members from all over the world will attend real time services…
                                                          • We will create a system of ministry specifically designed for people who are not physically able to attend a church.
                                                          • We will offer various levels of partnership with iChurch members: some will also be members of home churches, and others will not.
                                                          • We will minister to hundreds and thousands of families and individuals in all fifty states, and eventually tens of thousands from around the world.

                      So Shall It Be…

                                                              1. Our statement of intent (a one and five year vision for our church family) is the result of searching for God’s will, writing a plan, and committing to do it.
                                                              2. Our vision will start to become a reality this year, until it reaches complete fruition over the next 5 years.
                                                              3. Slowly, steadily, and surely everything will happen just as it is presented this day, January 6 2013!
