Our annual Spring Retreat trip to Garden City Chapel in South Carolina
This past spring was a whirlwind of ministry! Villages, Huddles, and the Gathering all happened weekly. Throw in a Spring Break trip to Mexico, Spring Retreat to Myrtle Beach, SC, Intramural teams, a Kentucky Derby party, and lots of other activities and it made for a busy 4 months!
Consistently, the most rewarding part of campus ministry is watching students grow and mature in their relationship with Christ. Students like Rachael, who believes she is being called into full time ministry after graduation. Or Erin, who works closely with an organization in Charlotte called Present Age Ministries to end sex trafficking. Or Lizzie and Lilly who brought the love of Christ in tangible and intangible ways into the Dance Department at Charlotte. Or Wendall who just graduated as an Engineer and is bringing Christ to the business world of Uptown Charlotte. Or Mary, who is giving up her first year as a teacher to go work with kids in Africa for 4 months this fall. I could go on and on and on with stories of how God is using 18-23 year olds to transform the world within which He has placed them. As a staff, it is humbling to be to be a part of their growth and transformation during their 4(ish) years of college.
This fall is the 14th year on campus for Impact Charlotte. When Justin and Nicole Wallace started this ministry in 2004 they had a dream to collide deep, intentional discipleship with radical community. 14 years later we can say that Impact is continuing that dream by being committed to being a culture of discipleship that seeks to build a church family that shares the love of Christ with everyone in our path. As the fall semester begins in a little over a month we ask that you pray that God gives us opportunities to be his hands and feet on campus!
