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.
