Know. Be. Live.

Impact 360 Gap Year is a nine-month, Christian worldview and leadership experience located in Pine Mountain, Georgia for students 18 - 20 years of age. Our mission is to equip young adults to become Christ-centered servant leaders.

Impact 360 Gap Year is an adventurous first year of college where students intentionally grow their relationships with God and others, own their personal faith and beliefs and discern God’s call in their lives. Students continue their college experience with a strong understanding of why they believe what they believe, who God has called them to be and how to live what they learn.

Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom as students live in intentional community, gain college credits, and participate in multiple service projects, including a month-long international trip.

Gap Year Highlights

College Credit (18 hours)

Impact 360 Gap Year partners with accredited Union University (Jackson, Tennessee) to offer 18 hours of transferable college credit to each student that attends.

I can't think of anything better between high school and the college years than to set aside time to discover God, explore the world and fine-tune your vision for the rest of your life. That's what Impact 360 is all about, combining great teaching with practical experience preparing your role in God's amazing story

I'm excited about the future. You meet with these young folks and their love for the Lord and their desire to learn. The things that are going on here at Impact 360 will have a major effect on their life...and I'm thankful to be a part of it.

It is no longer someone else's job to worry about the next generation and what kind of leaders they will be. It is our responsibility as Christian leaders to work to produce young people who are grounded in Truth and who are willing to influence the world by living Christ-focused lives. Impact 360 offers a program designed to meet this challenge, and believe me, the next generation of leaders will be better because of it

The fact is higher education is a terrific asset, but only if students know how to own their own education and not just merely jump through the hoops laid out for them. The fact is higher education can strengthen a student’s understanding of the world and even their faith, but only if students are clear about what is true about the world and how they can know it.
