What is IMPACT? The IMPACT Summer Missions Program of Aisquith Presbyterian Church exists for the glory of God as his people are Sent, Serve, and Seek.
As God calls members of His Church here at Aisquith to be a part of an IMPACT Team, so He prepares, and He sends in conjunction with the Session and congregation. We are sent as just one tangible application of the Great Commission given to us by our Lord Jesus – “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
The IMPACT team is sent with the specific purpose of serving – serving Christ, his missionaries, and those in spiritual (and physical) need in the community to which we are sent. We serve Christ preeminently in all that we do – interaction with locals, visitation, work projects, worship and devotional times. We serve the missionaries which we support financially by adding hands and feet to their labors within the community to which we are sent. Additionally, we serve those in need within that particular community as we seek to meet their real and felt needs.
As a team member is sent and serves, so we pray, that if it would be the will of our Heavenly Father, team members would seek his will for their lives – perhaps sensing the calling of God to continue in ministry with a particular people or community to serve themselves as a missionary.
