Impact Church is a big presence in Scottsdale, with an enormous heart for impacting culture. For many of us, the church serves as a second home and a community that delivers us into living a life market by vision and faith. What began as a bible study for the Arizona Cardinals was opened to the public and quickly grew to become one of the fastest growing churches in the nation. From weekly worship to mission work, Impact is known for diversity, authenticity, and throwing a huge God-sized party each weekend! I’m thrilled to partner with my Impact family for May’s Homes for Good initiative.
As with many churches, Impact has tons of areas to get involved and even more arenas for community outreach. When deciding where I could help affect change with May’s fundraising, I was particularly drawn to Impact Culture teen ministries and Summer Camp 2018. The Impact Culture team is passionate, relatable and relational, striving daily to help teens find their purpose in life and to follow the calling to love God and love others.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have heard first-hand from pastor Justin Hamilton about the impact these Summer Camps have on the attendees. For these 7th to 12th grade students, at a pivotal time in their development, camp is an opportunity to learn, connect and grow.
For many students, these camps can be life-changing but not everyone has the ability to fund their trip. That’s where Homes for Good hopes to help, specifically.
Through open houses and my daily real estate activities I hope to not only be able to sponsor some of the students, but also spread the word about the good work Impact Church is doing in our community. With Austin Bates and V.I.P. Mortgage matching all donations as my title sponsor, that means more opportunity to help make a significant impact.
I’m excited to continue to partner with organizations doing so much good and affecting change in our community.
I am often asked how people can get involved and really there are so many ways. You can absolutely donate through my recently launched website, but you can also nominate a local organization. However, perhaps the most impactful way you can help is to share. Share these stories, talk to people, tell them how they can get involved and help me affect real and lasting change.
