Impact 360 Institute was born out of the purpose of Lifeshape: To glorify God by breaking the cycle of spiritual poverty.

Our philosophy of education begins with the concept of holistic learning. Because all truth is God’s truth, we reject the idea that reality is to be carved up into the artificial categories of sacred and secular. As Christ-followers, we are called to live every aspect of our lives under God’s authority and for God’s glory. There should not be a disconnect between how we think and how we live.

Why Impact?

Impact 360 combines multiple elements found in other gap year programs; this includes worldview studies, experiential learning, international travel, and leadership training.
