Join us this Summer!

At Impact 360 we talk about big questions related to God, the Bible, culture, and how to live as a faithful Christian in today’s cultural context.

Propel specifically focuses on discipleship, leadership, and influence. This experience is different because it prepares each student with the tools they need to engage their community as Christ-centered leaders.

+ More - Less

Building Resilient Disciples

At Impact 360 Propel you can expect to:

  1. Discover a safe place to ask tough questions and share honest doubts.
  2. Experience real community with other truth-seekers.
  3. Gain the confidence to follow Jesus boldly in high school, college, and beyond.
  4. Be mentored in small groups by Impact 360 Fellows alumni committed to living out their faith on campus.
  5. Experience a smaller learning environment where you will get more personal interaction with faculty, staff, and other students (space is very limited).
  6. Be equipped to influence those around you for Christ.
  7. Find your unique place in the story God is writing.

Engaging Big Questions

Engaging Culture with a Biblical Worldview

A worldview is the lens that you view everything through. It’s how we make sense of reality. What is your worldview, and how do you know if it’s the true one?

Identifying False Christianity

Learn how to identify false Christianity, and how to differentiate from what is true and what is not by asking good questions. In this module we specifically dive into the topic of Progressive Christianity, what it is, and how significantly it differs from historic Christianity.

How to be a Christian in an Age of Social Media

In an age of outrage, how can we guard our hearts on social media? How can we use social media well? What are some important tools for teens to have as they engage on social.

How to Make Disciples

The great commission is for every Christ-follower to participate in. We train our students on how to make disciples, and how to create an environment of discipleship where the things of God become good and normal around them.

Christ-centered Identity

What does it actually mean to have our “identity” in Christ? Learn about this reality, and examine ways that this truth still needs to permeate other areas of your life.

Learn and Practice Spiritual Disciplines

Spiritual disciplines are not a way to make God happy with us. He already love us unconditionally. Spiritual disciplines are a way for us to connect with God. They are habits that we create to keep us remain connected.

Becoming an Influential Leader

We define leadership as influence. Everyone has some sort of influence, and therefore everyone is a leader. How do you plan to leverage your influence? In this module we unpack leadership and influence and create a plan for influence in our community. Watch the video below to hear from our Fellows on their view of leadership
