Impact is a place where the hungry are fed and the naked are clothed. Our distribution center at Impact serves as a place where thousands of people can come and receive food and clothes. David, who takes care of everything there, is a man who seeks to live out what Jesus said in Matthew 25, and push me to be the same way.
Impact is a place where the homeless can feel at home. Everyday of the week, Impact's kitchen is open and many of our homeless, or outdoorsmen, as we call them, come and fed. Along with food, they have the opportunity to shower and wash clothes. They can also receive their mail at the church, and can get help in finding a job and a way off of the streets.
Impact is a place where people of all races and languages come to worship. Any given Sunday you can people from all walks of life at Impact. From doctors and lawyers to abused and neglected children, all come to worship the same God, and to share a meal together afterwards.
Impact is a place where the unloved are loved. Whether it be a neglected child from a horrible situation, or a wheelchair bound elderly individual stuck in a nursing home, both are cared for and loved at Impact. Many of our ministers go to assisted living and nursing homes every week, to seek out the forgotten children of God in these places. Just as we as a youth team, seek to love our kids and help them grow as people, and equip them to love others as Jesus loved them.
Impact is a place that I have been called. I've been called to work with the youth, specifically the high school, and to show them more about the reality and way of Christ. Honestly, no matter how many cool trips, lessons, and small groups I do they probably will not grow and learn from what I do, nearly as much as I will grow and learn from being in their presence. “ -from http://followinghiscalltohouston.blogspot.com/
