Hello!! My name’s Felicia and I am from Newburyport, Massachusetts where I typically stay with my lovely grandparents. I was caught in a whirlwind of worldly things when I came into my first year at Imagine. With God, I fought through problems with self-worth, renewing my habits and way of life, and even addiction. My internship involves Worship and Youth! Being involved in these departments I get to learn more about the heart of worship and how to correctly lead a congregation into that experience. I also have the pleasure of receiving vocal/music lessons! In terms of youth, it’s a whole new experience for me! I’ll be leading worship, but also helping create games and services and brainstorming new ideas for the group! Imagine has been a huge growing and learning experience in these last 2 years.
Hello!! My name is Isaac Marks. I am from South Burlington, Vermont. I am 18 years old, and I am a second year. I originally heard about this program at the NNED youth convention. While growing up I never really went to church, or at least consistently anyway. Because of that I never made a solid connection with God, but because of imagine I have been given me the opportunity and environment to build on my relationship with God. Imagine has given me opportunity to have hands on ministry in the areas that I feel called in, in my case that is mainly talking and communicating with people, and outreach to the local community
Hi, my name is Faith! I grew up in North Berwick, Maine. I was raised by a wonderful Christian family . I love coffee, dogs, and simple evenings hanging out with friends and family. I was in college from the ages 18-20, and I just knew deep in my soul that this was not my endgame, that God had something more for me. I started attending Connect Community Church during a really rough time in my life, and that's when I felt God call me to join Imagine Internship Program. So I joined, not knowing what it would entail at all, and over the several months of being here, I have experienced so much growth in my walk with Jesus, and in my heart for this church! I'm so thankful for everything I've experienced here already and can't wait for what's to come. Greetings is my area of focus, so you'll probably see me at the front doors every Sunday service!
Hello!! My name is Deborah, but I go by the nickname Debs or Deb. I'm from Lebanon NH, but have always consider Portsmouth to be my home! I'm the youngest out of 5, two of my other siblings went through the discipleship school years prior, so I've been surround by ministry my entire life. Which lead me to want to come here. I love having deep Jesus talks or just really getting to know you, going on adventures, finding a new aesthetic coffee shops and taking photos. My internship is being the social media content creator! So I get to take the photos, edit them, plan posts, update websites and help my best friend/fellow intern Olivia film announcements & short sermons! On a Sunday you'll probably see a camera in my hand!
Hi, my name is Jesse. I am from Ashland, Maine. My dad is a pastor in the Augusta Maine area. I grew up in the church but never had a personal relationship with God until I was 17. My senior year I was going to join the marines but I always knew God was calling me to full time ministry. My mom signed me up for an experience weekend at imagine and here we are now. My internship is in the youth group and worship. I put together sermons, help with the games, and schedule out the nights we have youth and I play bass and guitar on the worship team
Whats up guys! My name’s Liv and I’m from Winslow Maine. I am obsessed with sweatpants, coffee, disney movies and basketball. I enjoy going for walks and beach drives with my friends while having deep Jesus talks. This is my second year as a member of Imagine, my senior year of highschool I knew that God was calling me to dig deeper in my faith and that is what brought me to Imagine! Since I started my journey here at Imagine I have experienced so much growth and have learned so many life lessons with some amazing people by my side. This year my focus’s are Young Adults and Women's ministry, I am also the spokesperson for any informational videos we post on social media, and you will most likely see me doing announcements on sundays!
