Through the Pursuit of His Glory
Always be prepared to give a defense to everyone who asks
you to give the reason for the hope that is in you. – 1 Peter 3:15
The Millennial and Gen Z generations are the first generations to be raised in a completely post-modern, post-Christian America. This had led to generations whose biblical literacy is at an all-time low, and who value feelings, relativism, pluralism and tolerance over sound Biblical instruction and values.
Therefore, now more than ever, young adults must be intentional to root and ground themselves in their faith. This is why we began IMPACT.
IMPACT is an opportunity to invest yourself in a community of disciples who pursue Jesus and His glory. As this happens, you discover God in greater ways than you’ve ever known, being transformed into His likeness, and thus discovering your identity in Him and gaining clarity on why you were created: to know Him and to make Him known. As your own life is transformed, you will become the vessel God uses to transform other lives as well – now impacting the world as one equipped and prepared. Thus setting the stage for God to move and bring revival to our broken and depraved world.
It is within this context of pursuing the Lord in community, that you receive instruction in the Word, theology, and apologetics to ground you in your faith. You also will have the opportunity to serve in the local church, our community, and in Guatemala.
Primary Components of IMPACT
