In 2004 Justin and Nicole Wallace moved to Charlotte with a dream to start a church for college students at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte called Impact. So, Justin and Nicole moved to Charlotte with a dream to start a church community for people that will shape the future. In 2006 Nathan and Emily Evans and Allen Wallace joined the team.
Why a church?
Because they believed that college students could be the church in the here and now. So often college students are told and believe that life will begin tomorrow, once they graduate. But, Justin and Nicole believed that college students could be the living, breathing church today.
Why a University campus?
Because the American University campus is the most forgotten, over-looked, ignored mission fields in the world. And the the University campus is full of men and women who will shape the future culture. They are the future teachers, doctors, politicians, social workers, nurses,
entrepreneurs, employers, husbands, wives, mothers and fathers. They are being trained to lead us into the future. If we can reach them with the Gospel then we could literally infiltrate the world with the Gospel. The University campus is the most strategic mission field in the world yet it remains un-tapped.
