i.d. Des Moines Chapter
If I preach the gospel, this gives me no ground for boasting, for necessity has been laid upon me. Woe to me if I do not preach the Gospel.
~1 Corinthians 9:16~
What is i.d.?
i.d. exists to form young adults into intentional disciples of Jesus Christ. In response to the call for a "New Evangelization," we are seeking to establish communities of missionary disciples and to provide opportunities for young adults (approximately ages 18-39) to encounter Jesus Christ, hear His call, and follow Him.
What do we do?
Our aim for growth in intentional community kicks off at our monthly Disciples' Nights. Join us on the first Thursday of each month for dinner, fellowship, and a speaker live-streamed from i.d. National!
*Due to COVID-19 and recent mandates from Governor Reynolds and Bishop Joensen, our monthly meetings will be entirely live-streamed through January.

Up, In, and Out - Discipleship Communities
Growth in discipleship is most effective and life-giving in the context of community living. id's particular style of community life includes weekly or bi-weekly meetings that rotate between "up, in, and out" nights. These nights focus on growing “up” towards the Father (think adoration or Bible study), “in” towards each other as a discipleship community, or “out” to the world as missionaries (attending a Disciples’ Night, volunteering, going to parish events, etc).
Social distancing and safety is crucial, and can complicate these events. We have found it to be an opportunity for creativity in service and fellowship.
