My Experience At Impact University

“Impact University helped me discover and embrace my identity in Christ. Before impact, I could barely look at people in the eye when they would speak to me, and I would stay quiet until spoken to. Impact helped form the true me. Now I love to talk to people, I can be goofy and loud. And if we engaged in an eye contest, I probably would win!”

– Zack Barnes, Associate Pastor at Impact Church International in Concord NC


“Attending Impact was a spiritually life-altering experience for me. I was equipped with the knowledge, tools, and spiritual training that have led me into the position I currently serve in as the Helps Pastor of NewCreation Church.”

– Dustin Krider, Senior Pastor of NewCreation Church
