As the director of Creative Strategies and Immersion for Impact 360 Institute, one of the highlights of my year is watching our Impact 360 Gap Year students give their final end of year presentations on a topic of their choice. This is the culmination of a 9-month transformative worldview and leadership experience for about 40 students aged 18-20. Yes they receive 18+ hours of college credit, but that’s just one small aspect of the true, holistic education they are receiving during this time. They are preparing for influence!
Our culture desperately needs a new generation to engage the imagination and the arts from a distinctively biblical worldview perspective.
Here is the 10 minute video of the end of year presentation of one of our Impact 360 Gap Year students (Miriam Meeks) on the Arts, Poetry, and Worldview. At the end is an original spoken word poem entitled “Let me create…”
The college years are about preparation for the future God has for them; not just getting a degree as quickly as possible.
This was just one of the excellent presentations given by our students. You can see more of them here. Some people are pessimistic about the next generation. We’re not. At Impact 360 Institute we are excited about equipping them! By the way, there are still a few spots left for this fall’s class. The college years are about preparation for the future God has for them; not just getting a degree as quickly as possible. As one of the faculty who gets to work with and teach these students, I can assure you that attending the Impact 360 Gap Year is an opportunity not to be missed! These students will never look at the world the same way again…and that is a really good thing.
