There are three definitions to the word IMPACT: Collision, Influence, and Effect. When it comes to our relationship with Jesus, we want Jesus to IMPACT our students in every sense of the word. We want Jesus to collide with our students and share the same space as our students. We want Jesus to influence our students. As students grow closer to Jesus, He should be more and more apparent in the decisions that our students make about their lives. Finally, We want want Jesus to have a measurable effect on the lives of our students. When someone looks at your student, we want them to be able to see Jesus all over their life. That is what it means to be IMPACTED by Jesus.
It doesn't stop there though. We want our students to have an IMPACT (in every sense of the word) on their world. We want our students to share the same space as people who need Jesus. We want our students to have influence in the lives of people to point people to Jesus. We want our students to have an effect on their world that clearly points to Jesus. Jesus having an IMPACT on our students and our students IMPACTING the world for Him is what IMPACT Student Ministries is all about.
