What missions experiences will your congregation provide your youth this summer? It’s not too late to make plans for life-changing experiences for the youth in your church as registration for the 2014 Deep Impact weeks is now underway.
“Rejoice, Proclaim, Be Glad” is the theme for this year’s Deep Impact. It comes from Psalm 97:1-6 where David praises God for His righteousness and His power over all things.
The goal of Deep Impact is to instill two essential truths in students: The necessity for a deep relationship with Christ and the unmistakable impact this relationship must have upon their lives and the lives of others.
This summer, Deep Impact will be conducted at 12 different locations: nine in North Carolina and three outside of North Carolina. In addition two mini-weeks will be available at Shelby and Red Springs Mission Camps.
Each week will provide students opportunities for engaging in various ministries for that specific location, including but not limited to: construction, senior adult care, children’s ministry, servant evangelism and sports evangelism.
“One of the unique aspects of Deep Impact is that we try to put people on projects where their gifts are maximized,” said Tom Beam, mobilization consultant for student missions at N.C Baptist Men.
“Each individual is going to choose which project they would like to serve on and then at night, you get to hear those opportunities of how God is working through those ministries.”
Deep Impact weeks at the following locations are full: North Carolina Baptist Assembly at Fort Caswell, Honduras and Cuba.
The three new locations in North Carolina this year are in Pittsboro (June 16-21), Washington (June 23-28) and Wilkes County (also June 23-28). For a complete list of locations and dates, see www.baptistsonmission.org/DeepImpact.
For all North Carolina locations, excluding the mini-weeks at the mission camps, registration is $200 per person. The mini-weeks at the Shelby and Red Springs mission camps are $100 per person.
The fees for teams participating in Deep Impact experiences outside of North Carolina may also be found at www.baptistsonmission.org/DeepImpact.
