Act. Respond. Initiate. Stand-up. Empower.

Esther 4:16

From Trayvon Martin to Stephon Clark, from inner-city schools with no heat or clean water to less than 42% graduation rate for today’s Black college students, our community has been exposed to trauma and spaces of chaos. At Impact18, we are issuing a communal call, from Esther 4:16, to Black students across the nation to A.R.I.S.E. and become stakeholders in the healing, relief, and deliverance of our community.

Dynamic Speakers

Join us for Impact18, as we take a critical look at the issues facing our community today and together search for practical, Biblically sound, and gospel-centered solutions.  Hear from some of today's leading Christians voices on these critical issues, participate in small group discussions, and engage in interactive seminars! You will also find dynamic praise and worship, guest artists, and open mic nights. All set in historic Atlanta Georgia!

Night of
Worship with
Gospel Artist
Todd Galberth




Like the early Christians, we must move into a sometime hostile world armed with the revolutionary gospel of Jesus Christ. With this powerful gospel we shall boldly challenge the status quo. -Martin Luther King, Jr.

Come consider how the "revolutionary gospel of Jesus" empowers us to "boldly challenge the status quo".  Our customized interactive seminar tracks for High School, College Students, Alumni and Pastors will engage variety of topics from growing in your personal relationship with Jesus, to engaging your campus, workplace, Church, or community from a culturally relevant and biblically sound perspective. Walk away armed with practical tools and resources to Act, Respond, Initiate, Stand Up and Empower!
