What People Are Saying

  • In the midst of an ever-changing culture, we must constantly wrestle with how we equip people to live out and communicate the never-changing gospel. IMPACT is an opportunity to connect with other leaders, learn from practitioners, and leave with a plan to mobilize your church to action.

    Jay Hardwick
    Jay Hardwick Lead Pastor - North Rock Hill Church, Rock Hill SC
  • Few people can question the massive cultural changes shaping the landscape of North American in our day. Impact 2016 presents the church with an opportunity to consider how to engage this new world with robust theology wedded with savvy missiology as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission in our day.

    Matt Rogers
    Matt Rogers Pastor, The Church at Cherrydale, Greenville
  • For far too long the Church has incubated itself from the surrounding culture. It's time that we all strategize and determine the best way to actually engage the culture so that we can see the kingdom of God advance within it. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn how to do this with many other leaders in our state at Impact 2016.

    Brandon Bowers
    Brandon Bowers Lead Pastor, Awaken Church Charleston
  • In our efforts to be faithful to the great commission, we must have a well-founded understanding of the culture and context to which we are ministering. Impact 2016 seeks to help enable pastors, leaders, and churches to engage their ever-changing communities with the hope of the never-changing gospel.

    David Sons
    David Sons Next Generation Pastor - Lake Murray Baptist Church, Lake Murray, SC
  • Culture is not the enemy, it is a Kingdom. The Enemy is a tyrannical kleptomaniac who has stolen our culture and made it a slum.  IMPACT 2016 provides the tools to equip the church to redeem the culture back to God’s Kingdom.

    Charlie Swain
    Charlie Swain Pastor - Church at Cane Bay, Summerville SC
  • If you are like me, your head spins trying to keep up with the culture shifts our country and world is experiencing. Even though I attempt to stay well read on the latest issues, I am still overwhelmed with the ultimate question, "how do I lead my church in response to these changes?" IMPACT will help answer that question, plus many more.

    Don Brock
    Don Brock Senior Pastor - Gateway Baptist Church, Irmo, SC
  • Leaders yearn for environments where they are inspired, encouraged, and challenged by other practitioners.  IMPACT will provide you with a unique opportunity to create transformative dialogue with other leaders just like you.

    Will Browning
    Will Browning Lead Pastor - Journey Church, Charleston SC
  • Impact inspires, challenges, and encourages leaders to boldly and creatively live the Great Commission. I hate time wasters, I love Impact.
