“Impact ME is not only changing me like the name suggests, but also the people around me.”- Cori Bridgford, Class of 2013
“The Lord has used Impact ME to set my feet on solid ground, not only missionally, but also theologically.”- Ellie Jo Wedell, Class of 2014
“Being an intern at Impact Africa was the greatest decision I've ever made. Before I came here, I was loving and serving Jesus the best I knew how, but it still felt like I was living in black and white. Now, I finally feel like I'm seeing in color. Learning how to share my faith and embracing the Great Commission has made me come alive in a way I've never felt before.”- Sarah Miller, class of 2016
