Impact 360 Institute
SEPTEMBER 18 | OCTOBER 17 | NOVEMBER 20
We exist to cultivate leaders who follow Jesus.
Preview Day is a four-hour experience to engage with staff and alumni, take part in Labs designed as a glimpse into the learning environment, share a Chick-fil-A meal, explore campus and hear the heart behind our mission.
Learn how each Impact 360 Institute experience equips you to know Jesus more deeply; continually be transformed in character; and ultimately live a life of Kingdom influence.

It’s really much simpler than I thought to be able to go out and share the gospel with people and defend my faith. I don’t have to be relying on my own strength, I have the power of Christ and he rose from the dead so obviously that’s a lot of power.
-Landry, Impact 360 Immersion 2018
It’s super important for me know why I believe what I believe because as soon as I step out of my home people are trying to discredit my beliefs because I believe in Christianity. They try to make me think it’s a fairytale and it’s not based on facts. And I don’t believe it because my parents told me to, I believe it because it is true and there is evidence to back it up my faith.
-Erin, Impact 360 Propel 2018
Impact has prepared me to build the kingdom in college. Because I know not only have a reason for what I believe but also a deeper understanding of what I believe.
-Caleb Salo, Impact 360 Fellows 2018
Pine Mountain is a quaint town and the surrounding area offers lots of great ways to be outdoors. Callaway Gardens has a lake, a butterfly house, acres of flowers, and miles of biking trails. Pine Mountain is also right next to F.D. Roosevelt State Park, where there are many hiking trails and the opportunity to explore Roosevelt's vacation cottage, the Little White House, which is now a museum. Pine Mountain is also centrally located between Columbus and LaGrange where there are a wider assortment of activities, restaurants, and shopping.
