In lieu of meeting in person for our Groups, we will be shifting to a Zoom Video Conference Call for our Sunday Community Group. Zoom is totally free to you, and can be used on any computer, tablet or mobile device. Zoom Community Group will begin at 10 am EDT (with the Virtual Meeting Room opening at 9:30 am) and will include all the elements of our in-person group (except the food—sad face). Just visit to get started and join us for Zoom Church. Once you are prompted for a password, enter Illuminate (with a capitalized "I" at the front of the word).

Get setup for Zoom Conference Calling
Zoom Video Conferencing is totally free to you, and can be setup for your first call in just a few minutes. The simplest way to do this is to click the Zoom call link that has been provided above for your first call and follow the setup prompts. You can also install the app for any device and get a small tutorial by following this link:
As we continue to do our part to help slow down and prevent the further spread of COVID-19 in our city, we still want to cultivate relationships within our community. We have moved our weekly Bible Reading Groups to Zoom Conferencing.

Our Bible Reading Groups are a time to read a shared bible passage with others and have a time of discussion and prayer. These Groups meet on Zoom on Wednesdays at 9 am EST and Thursdays at 6 am & 7 pm EST.

As we have mentioned before, we understand that there is a lot going on right now, and that if you are able to join us outside of Sunday's Community Group it truly is a BONUS. We simply wanted to create additional opportunities to gather as we can these days as time and schedules allow!

All Groups can be joined via with the password of "Illuminate"

Our Story

Illuminate Indy’s story began in late 2015, when God began the process of calling and sending a group of people to the city of Indianapolis, IN to join in the kingdom work of Illuminating Christ and making His disciples. In 2016 this group began meeting weekly in their homes, and in the Spring of 2017, Illuminate Indy began holding weekly public services on non-traditional meeting times in the building of another church.

In the spring of 2019, Illuminate Indy’s leadership sensed God leading this community of faith to something different than a traditional model of church planting. So Illuminate Indy moved services to Sunday mornings in the setting of a home.

Illuminate Indy is not a place.
It’s a people.

In our experience, we have seen people grow spiritually and experience renewed hope through intentional & vibrant community. While our “traditional” service meeting times ebbed and flowed with attendance and involvement, our Community Groups have always flourished and multiplied. After much prayer and introspective thought and dialogue, we’ve chosen to follow a non-traditional church model of Networked Groups that intentionally multiplies new groups through making disciples of Jesus Christ.

Illuminate Indy is a non-traditional church model of Networked Groups.

Illuminate Indy is made up of Community Groups that meet in homes, as well as Bonus “discipleship-based” Groups that meet monthly in a variety of places.
All Groups meet collectively once a month for our BIG Gathering.
