Easter Break

Easter Break

After an incredible week of classroom learning with John Kilner the students were able to leave campus for the weekend to enjoy their last break of the year. Many students had the opportunity to go home to be with their families and were able to enjoy Easter in their home churches. Not only did this break allow us to observe the death and resurrection of Christ, the basis of our faith, but it also symbolized …

Helping students navigate vocation

Helping students navigate vocation

One of the most valuable aspects of Impact 360 Institute’s Gap Year is in helping our students wrestle with vocation. “Vocation” doesn’t just mean a paid job that one does. Rather, it is a biblical concept that conveys a deep understanding of service to both God and neighbor. A vocation is a station of service where someone can effectively live out the great commandment (love of God) and the second that is like it (love …

A Truly Good Story:

A Truly Good Story:

Henry David Thoreau wrote, “A truly good book teaches me better than to read it. I must soon lay it down, and commence living on its hint. What I began by reading, I must finish by acting.”

That is an awesome reminder that we all have the opportunity and responsibility to take these next several weeks at Gap Year and continue to soak up as much as we can before “acting out” all that we have learned …

Where two or three gather.

I have the privilege of teaching third grade boys’ Sunday school. It is more often than not the highlight of my week. I love the ridiculousness of a little boy. I love silly jokes and stories about getting to the 11th level of Super Mario Brothers and how “one time, my little brother swallowed a Quarter…”
And I love to hear the heart of an 8-year old when he prays.
I love to share the gospel with kids who …

Monday on a Thursday?

Monday on a Thursday?

A lot of people are probably confused today. They keep hearing that it’s “Monday Thursday,” and are thinking they’ve missed a universal memo about changing the days of the week! Well, rest easy, friends. There’s no such thing as Monday Thursday.

It’s Maundy… Thursday. Still confused?

Maundy Thursday is a special day for us to remember, reflect and be reminded of a very important time in history – and perhaps the most important lesson we could ever …

Christianity and Culture

How does or should the church interact with culture? During this past week, our class had the privilege of hosting John Stonestreet to discuss this topic. John Stonestreet is a clearly gifted communicator. One of the things I most enjoyed about him this past week was how interactive and engaging he was. He allowed for questions and active involvement in class, but he also stayed on topic. Yet in staying focused, he was able to …

What does grace mean to you?

What does grace mean to you?

What does “grace” mean to you? For a lot of us, grace is what we call the prayer before meals. Our mothers or fathers would ask, “Who wants to say grace?” as we gathered around the dinner table, and we’d pray or sing “God is great; God is good; Let us thank Him for our food.”

Still others associate grace with the dictionary definition, “a simple elegance or refinement of movement,” so, when we see a …

A life unlike any other.

A life unlike any other.

The Masters is taking place this weekend about 3.5 hours East of Pine Mountain. You don’t have to be a fan of golf to know that this tournament is a pretty big deal. Not only is The Masters one of the four major championships in professional golf, it is widely known as one of the greatest sporting events in the world.

Why is that? Is it the location? Augusta, Georgia is nice, but it hardly ranks …
