Welcome to Impact 360 Immersion

At Impact 360 Institute we believe in raising a generation of leaders who know Jesus deeply, choose to be transformed in their character, and live with Spirit-empowered influence.

We also believe that because all truth is God’s truth, so we reject the idea that reality is to be carved up into the artificial categories of sacred and secular. As Christ-followers we are called to live every aspect of our lives under God’s authority and for God’s glory. Classical thinkers referred to this as Coram Deo (literally “before the face of God”). How we think and how we live go together, and are all based in this reality.

Impact 360 Immersion is a 2-week transformational worldview and leadership experience for high school students where they will learn what they believe, why they believe it, and how to live it out in the real world.

Our students will learn from some of the best minds in biblical worldview and apologetics. They will also engage in powerful times of worship. This is paired with incredibly fun & engaging excursions to make memories that last a lifetime. Immersion isn’t just a summer camp, it’s a chance to dive into your faith and make it your own.

+ More - Less

Description

Immersion Class Topics

Does God Exist?

Everyone Has a Worldview
Uncover what a worldview is, why everyone has one, what yours is, and how to find out what others worldview is.

Dealing with Doubt
We all will have doubt in our faith journey at some point, and to some degree. Learn how to deal with doubt in a healthy and productive way.

Is Truth Relative?
What is truth, how do you know something is true, and does truth change over time or in certain environments?

The Origin and Reliability of the Bible
Uncover the origin of the Bible, and see if it's reliable. Explore the history of the formation of the Bible, the Canonization of the text, and hear common objections from critics and learn the good reasons to believe the Bible is true.

The Problem of Evil and Suffering
One of the most common objections to a belief in a good God is the problem of evil and suffering. Learn about this topic, and prepare to think through the big questions around it.

Who Was Jesus?
Uncover the history of Jesus, the most famous person in the history of the world. Learn about his claims, why Christians view him as God and how other worldviews view Jesus.

Thinking Christianly About Music, Film and Pop Culture
Engage in a conversation about how to approach the arts and culture. How should Christians engage?

Moral Relativism
Students will engage on the topic of morality. Is morality absolute or relative based on time, place or circumstance? Where does the idea of morality come from? What is moral living? Who sets the standard?

Defending Your Faith on Campus and in the Classroom
Learn tactics to winsomely engage in conversations around your faith, and why you believe it to be good, true, and real.

Making the Case for Life
Learn how to make the case for life. Learn about embryology, biology and ethics as you develop a clear case for life. Explore the Biblical case for life as we unpack the reality and implications of Imago Dei.

Discovering Your Identity in Christ
What does it mean to have your "identity" in Christ. This is much more than a church catchphrase, this is life-altering truth that will transform your view of the world, your mission, and yourself.

God’s Design for Sexuality in a Confused Culture
Learn about the Biblical vision for sexuality.

Engaging Culture Through Imagination & the Arts
How can Christian engage culture through creating.

Is Jesus the Only Way?
When Jesus said, "I am the Way, The Truth, The Life" what did He mean. Is he really the only way to God? Explore other views and get to the bottom of Jesus' claim.

Is Evolution True?
Unpack evolutional theories, including Darwinian evolution, Theistic Evolution and other theories. Explore the case for creation and how this case is more plausible scientifically and rationally.

Learning From Jesus How to Live Finding God’s Will
Jesus gives us a picture of how to live out God's will. This often confusing topic becomes more clear as students uncover that much of God's will for each of us is laid out clearly in scripture.

Did Jesus Rise From The Dead?
How can anyone know that Jesus rose from the dead? Examine the most common objections to the resurrection, and think critically about the case for the resurrection- the foundation of the Christian faith.
