WHEATON, Ill. (BP) – Georgia Baptist college students learned servant leadership skills during sessions of a recent conference near Chicago, then put their new skills to work throughout the community during the day. The conference, called Impact Zone, was sponsored by the North American Mission Board and held on the campus of Wheaton College May 22-29.
In coordination with NAMB’s WorldChangers program, Impact Zone participants spent their daylight hours refurbishing substandard housing in communities near Wheaton and in Hammond, Indiana. As participants replaced roofs, painted, re-decked porches and replaced worn out gutters and downspouts, they also took the opportunity to share Christ with residents and neighbors.
Two Impact Zone events are already being planned for next year. Information will be available at www.studentz.com/impact.
