Jason and Stacie Shepherd are the Lead Pastors at Illuminate Church in Inglewood, CA. They love God & love people. After moving to Inglewood in 2016, they felt that God had called them to launch a life-giving church that would have a lasting impact in their community. Inglewood is a thriving city within Los Angeles County that draws people from all over the world. With its changing demographics, growing economy, and massive appeal Jason and Stacie felt that Inglewood needed a church that appealed to the culture of today. It is their goal to see people Grow in a faith community, find God through His Word, and discover their Purpose through serving.
WE CREATE OPPORTUNITY.
Light unlocks vision helping us to see what we could not before. Our example of light is Jesus Christ. We create a welcoming space for the presence of God to unlock vision and affirm purpose. Our everyday routines and interactions are opportunities for the power of God to transform lives.
WE INFLUENCE OUR SURROUNDINGS
We are called to make a difference wherever we are. In Matthew 5:13, Jesus tell his disciples that it is this “salt” that distingushes them within their community. As we begin to display these characteristics and invite God into our daily decision-making processes, we grow in our ability to affect real and lasting change.
WE BUILD EACH OTHER AS WE BUILD COMMUNITY.
We are a church that shares generously in our gifts, talents, and resources in helping others reach their desired goals. Illuminate Church is not only committed to serving community from areas of strength, we are also dedicated to growing in areas of unearthed potential.
WE ARE MANY MEMBERS OF ONE BODY.
Instructed by 1 Corinthians 12, We value the many ways God chooses to work through people. We are created in the image of God, each person with a unique stamp. Illuminate Church actively encourages discovery and supports the cultivation of your God-given gifts. We welcome the diversity of talent inherent in the body of believers as we unite in purpose to make disciples of all nations as commanded in Matthew 28:19.
We lead with respect as we become kingdom-minded. Our culture code requires us to treat all people with dignity whether they believe what we believe or not. “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.”
Romans 12:10 NIV
Our community is where we build trust, establish lasting relationships, model consistency, celebrate wins, mourn in loss, practice restoration and love unconditionally.
“Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.” Proverbs 11:14 NIV
Faith is the fuel that propels us to new levels. We operate knowing that placing our confidence in an invisible God produces tangible results. We do not face battles in our own strength as it leaves us depleted. Rather we face life’s challenges knowing the Almighty God brings us through with renewed strength.
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1 NIV
