Such a bittersweet moment as this iMPACT year comes to a close. So many memories were created this year and experiences for which I’m so grateful!

Another winter extreme was added to list, where we fought our way to the top and got 2nd in Broomball! Mafia Madness returned as well, dressing up as mobsters and tackling the scavenger hunts! We then finished off this year with the Impys and said goodbye to our seniors.

Not only was there a goodbye to our seniors, but in the beginning of this year we had to say goodbye to Josh Peterson as the youth pastor as he takes over the senior pastor position in the church.

With the beginning of the year in a sort of rocky position, our iMPACT students were able to hear from multiple of our youth leaders as well as some of our peers included. The search for our new youth pastor had ended when we found Steve!! A warm (but mostly cold) welcome to Chicago in early January!

Steve has been so awesome in already making such an impact at iMPACT! His messages have been fruitful in so many ways and it was a great way to start off the 2015 year. I’m looking forward to seeing just what Steve has for us this next school year.
