The holy spirit moves through our ministry...

Ministry at Idlewild reaches inward in spiritual formation for all ages and outward in love to our community and the world. Whether on a jam-packed Sunday morning with interactive classes for children, discussion classes for youth, and a full range of classes for adults (from in-depth bible study to a stand-alone forum class) Idlewild offers a variety of ways to grow in faith. Neither afraid of intellectual questions or personal growth, we are a place to deepen your understanding and love for God. Having received such love, we are a community that responds. Whether it is installing clean water systems in Ghana, tutoring at a local elementary school, or inviting homeless and near homeless in for a weekly meal, we are a people learning to be more kind. Come join us in our journey. The ministries of Idlewild are organized by ministry units. See the organizational chart and explore the ways Idlewild is serving as the hands and feet of Christ in Memphis and the world.
