NOTE** The below update is only concerning our summer experiences. Impact 360 Fellows and Masters are currently scheduled to begin at their assigned date in fall 2020.
Propel and Immersion 2020 Update May, 15th, 2020
Parents and Students,
Over the past several months, our team at Impact 360 Institute has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as guidelines and restrictions put forth by the CDC and state and local authorities to understand how it could affect our summer experiences in 2020. Our team has worked diligently to consider scenarios that would help us achieve our mission of cultivating leaders who follow Jesus while keeping our staff, students, and families safe. We have spent substantial time discussing and considering any option that would allow us to hold Propel and Immersion in person on our campus this summer.
After seeking wisdom and spending much time in prayer, and in light of the recent executive order from our Governor prohibiting overnight summer camps at this time, we have reluctantly made the very difficult decision to cancel our summer experiences for the summer of 2020. We are sad and disappointed but know that this is the wisest way forward for the safety of our students, staff, and families.
We have sent more detailed information with further instructions for the families involved.
We will miss you so much this summer! Please know that we are praying for your family during these unprecedented times, and we will continue to be an ally for you in your son or daughter’s faith journey for years to come. If there is anything that we can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask!
Grace and Peace,
The Impact 360 Institute Summer Team

These are indeed challenging and unpredictable days.
Our leadership has been and continues to process information from county, state, and federal officials.We are prayerfully making decisions we believe are best for the health of our students and staff and especially those who are most vulnerable in our communities.
This is why we decided to make the tough decision to launch a fully virtual Impact 360 Fellows experience for the remainder of the semester. Our students were sent home on 3/15/2020 and will continue learning, being discipled, and engaging in our community virtually for the remainder of their Fellows experience. Together, our team is fully committed to making this a great experience.
At this time, we are still planning on hosting Impact 360 Propel and Immersion this summer. We will follow county, state, and national guidelines to make a final decision at a later date. We will send direct communication to all families involved in our summer programming as more information becomes available, and as a clearer timeline in available to us as a nation.
Please pray for our team and students as we seek to cultivate the next generation of leaders who follow Jesus.
Jesus reminds us in the Gospel of Luke, “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.
This is still true today. May we always be reminded that the kingdom of God is in our midst, no matter if we are physically or virtually together.
