The Impact Movement Vision The Impact Movement envisions each community of African descent fulfilling its destiny as a reflection of the redemptive power of Jesus Christ. Like in the Joseph story, we believe that the slavery, oppression and obstacles we have faced as a people, was meant for evil, but God is using it for the good, for the saving of many lives.
How did it start? Impact began as a conference in 1991 to challenge African American college students to get involved in missions. In the late ‘90s we began to develop campuses ministries. Since 2004, we are a distinct non-profit organization of Campus Crusade for Christ working in close partnership.
What is Impact now? The Impact Movement now has a focus on reaching college students of African descent and develop them as leaders to reach their communities and the world for Christ. Impact has a presence on over 100 campuses and chapters on about 50 campuses throughout the United States. In addition to campus chapters we also use music to reach people with the Gospel.
Impact Music Music is a powerful force that leads people to God or away from Him. We see that our culture today is dominated by the influence of music, social media, and video content.
Impact Music uses the power of the creative arts to point people to Christ
Impact Music Based in Westfield, Indiana, at the HQ, of Keynote- the creative arts ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ, the 1st Impact Music Summer Mission took place in 2005. Since then, Impact Music has formed bands each summer to grow spiritually and reach people with the Gospel. Thousands have been reached and have come to Christ as a result.
