youth impact

Our Mission

Youth Impact is a discipleship ministry, dedicated to reaching kids K-12th grade in Bryan and College Station. Our Thursday after-school program is a platform for volunteers to meet kids and their families and eventually develop discipleship relationships. Our goal is to partner with parents of under-resourced youth to aid in developing their students into followers of Christ who will be the leaders of our community. Each year, we have 100-120 college-age volunteers who connect to 200-250 students weekly. We also understand that our volunteers are being shaped by the families and experiences of the ministry, therefore we take great care to supplement their efforts through bible study and training.

What to Expect

Leader Training

Effective discipleship of the students starts with effective discipleship and training of our volunteers. On Sunday nights and one retreat weekend each semester we take time to walk through scripture and various topics to best equip and support our volunteers for ministry.

After-School Program

Every Thursday we facilitate five after-school programs at various locations around town. This weekly program is the platform that allows our volunteers to meet students and present the gospel.

Work Initiative

The Work Initiative is a program in which we partner with local businesses to connect students (16yrs & up) to jobs. The students involved also participate in group discussions on important work-related topics, visit colleges/businesses, and read to younger kids; all contributing to expanding their opportunities post-high-school.

Summer Camp

Students in 4th grade and up have the chance to go to a week-long summer camp at Stoney Creek Ranch. This camp experience challenges students to get outside of their comfort zone, both physically and in their faith.
