Young Adults (IPC Pathways)

Immanuel seeks to help adults travel a path of spiritual growth, deepening their relationship with God and equipping the to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

Welcome to IPC Pathways

A program to help young people imagine their future atImmanuel Presbyterian Church, McLean, VA.

IPC Pathways is for young people who have a connection to Immanuel, whether or not they are members. It is designed to access an under-utilized asset: the wisdom and experience of Immanuelites of all ages..

Imagining Your Future

“Imagining Your Future” is a program being tested at Immanuel Presbyterian Church that supports teams exploring life’s important questions together. There are three members of each team: a high school or college student, a young adult and an older adult. Each team commits to regular meetings to discuss thought-provoking books, articles, videos and exercises described in “modules.”

Check out this 5 minute video testimonial from Immanuelites who are on guide teams.
