The others…

The others…

Have you ever heard the famous phrase: Good things come in two’s? OK, maybe it’s not a famous phrase, but it absolutely should be. “Good things come in two’s.” Think about it… Noah led the animals onto the Ark in two’s. We have two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, two arms, two hands, legs and feet.

You like Resee’s Cups? Two’s. Twinkies? Twix? I’m just sayin’.

Here’s the point: none of us could succeed on our own. We …

Creativity is a curious thing

Creativity is a curious thing

Creativity is a curious thing. There are countless definitions that try to describe what creativity is and how it can be applied, but there will never be a complete thought that fully captures its meaning in each of our lives.

Sure, it’s a combination of worldly wisdom, perspective, and accumulating existing ideas and failures from multiple disciplines, but the “creativity formula” changes every day and each of us are gifted to apply it differently. And this …

Every Thursday we attend what is referred to as “The Academy.” This is a classroom time, usually spent with Ed, which was modeled after Plato’s Academy and is meant to encourage discussion and …

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 …
