For the past seven years Impact University has offered a servant leadership group called the “Black School” providing the oldest group of students the opportunity to serve other students and staff during the week of camp. The goals of the week are, 1) to challenge students to be servant leaders when they return home, 2) to help students to grow in their relationship with God and 3) to return to Impact as staff in following years.
This year’s camp gives one example of success through the life of one of the former Black School students. David Livingston, son of Ken and Jolene Livingston, First Grace Baptist Church, Sheffield, returned to serve at Impact as an Assistant Team Leader. In his normal weekly activities David also leads the Salt Company at South West Community College in Creston.
David was not the only example of emerging leaders of the Black School as several other past graduates also returned this year to serve as family leaders. God has used Black School to train students to serve and has also raised the bar for all the students at Impact as well.
- Pray that God will continue to use Impact to change the lives of junior and senior high students, so they can impact others.
- Pray that students will take up God’s calling on their life and step forward to learn and grow in their faith and to serve at Impact and in their community.
