Imagination is the capacity to visualize, to be confident in or hopeful of a reality that contradicts our experience and unshackles the limits of what is possible. This is why faith, in part, is an act of the imagination because faith requires us to envision and inhabit a world that we cannot perceive with our senses. If reason changes minds, then imagination changes hearts.


Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! (far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!) He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you. [Ephesians 3:20]

AVL City Church (formerly known as audaciChurch) started out in the heart of God to inspire His creation to discovery their Maker and all they are made for. In January 2010 God entrusted this vision to us. We wrestled with it for a whole year, exploring what the vision and mission might look like (image on right: 2012).


In the fall of 2012, in the heart of downtown Asheville, NC, with a few family and friends, a semi-believable vision, a laughable dream, no building, and zero dollars, we launched.

Even though the past and the current spiritual condition is dark, the future is bright because God has brought us here. God has brought you here! What if we leap into the future not by wishing for it but by investing in it?


The Imagine Challenge is about confronting our current imaginations, mindsets and expectations. We must believe again, press into and see God’s reality becoming ours. This journey will pave the way for greater inward revival and outward impact by spreading the Good News of the Kingdom of God worldwide. Yes, this requires vision and will require finances. This will also require us to lead the way, to go first as we expand our reach.


Imagine if what the church did, impacted the city. Imagine a city that is filled with a tangible, powerful, thick atmosphere of peace that enables people to think for themselves, dream, and celebrate life. Imagine a place where hope is real and measurable, so the prevailing attitude is that anything is possible. 


Can you imagine what it would be like to see dignitaries coming from around the world to see what God is doing here? Investing in eternity is not an obligation or an option, its the greatest opportunity on earth!

Frequently asked questions


The Imagine Challenge is about taking our church on a spiritual and practical journey. Spiritually, we want to see God’s reality become ours in everyday life. If we want the presence of God to be real in our lives we need to be intentional about our spiritual growth. Practically, we want to fund the next phase of our vision and mission. We need to raise $75,000 for outreach expansion and the future of AVL City Center, state-of-the-art event and concert venue.


The Imagine Challenge will last until end of 2019. Even though the financial portion will be done, we believe that the spiritual journey will be a catalyst for making God’s reality ours for the rest of our lives.


The financial amount is $75,000 above and beyond your regular tithes and offerings.


Outreach Expansion is our digital footprint. We live in a digital world were a person is one click away from finding Jesus and freedom. By not having an online presence, we are missing opportunities for reaching the lost. In essence we will be launching an online campus with a dedicated online pastor. This will require leadership, training and equipment. In order to establish an online presence we will be creating and maintaining weekly podcasts, live interactive streaming and using other social networks filled with inspiring messages, music and other interactions. In order to do that we will be purchasing audio, video, lights for live & studio recording gear.


AVL City Center has been in our hearts to build or remodel a state-of-the-art venue to reach influencers around the world. As a church, we go out into the world to reach the lost. As a multi-purpose venue, we will bring the world in. The auditorium will boast in a center stage with 360 degree 1,200 seating for the most personal concert or event experience. AVL City Center will include a cafe and bookstore for local art and artists to showcase their talents. Will also have multi-purpose rooms that will be available for rent as well as a recording studio, television recording studio, radio station. Will provide services such as marketing, hosting conferences, concerts and other events.


We understand that this seems so out of reach at the moment but everything is out of reach until someone or a group of people reach for it and make it reality. The Imagine Challenge is about confronting our current imaginations, mindsets and expectations. We must believe again, press into and see God’s reality becoming ours.


This is a WE moment. We hope that you as an individual or a family will prayerfully consider how God may be inviting you to join Him in the story He’s writing here in our House. You can give by clicking here.
