ChristCentral Training
Meet the Impacters | Pip

IMPACT is a one-year full-time training, development and service programme designed to change your life and build the church. It is a great way to receive biblical training, discover and develop your gifts, grow in character, get involved church planting and serve God in the local church. Impact students are based in a local church and spend time often focussing on a specific project such as youth evangelism, the prophetic culture or students and volunteering in the church. Impacters also receive biblical training through one of our Into the Word (LINK) training bases, which is a great chance for them to grow in the biblical knowledge, whilst getting involved practically too. They also have several mission days throughout the year, which is a great chance to get involved with church community, whether that be on the streets or in a local church plant. Our students grow dramatically in relationship with God, and are already getting stuck in to church life.

During the next few weeks we will be sharing a little bit about each of our Impact students and what areas of church they are involved in…

Meet Pip: Based at Gateway Church Leeds, and her project involves mainly student work, administration and helping at the Gateway Tots group.

Impact student: Pip

She has been really busy so far with student events as Gateway Church Leeds have been welcoming them at the start of term and organising welcome meals after both our gatherings, and student nights during the week. Pip will be continuing to organise events as the year goes on!

God called Pip by closing a lot of doors! God sent lots of words and pictures for her and through others advice and prayers. Pip felt as though she was quite reluctant when she was called, but God made it very clear to her that it was the right thing for her to do this year.

“I came to Gateway Church Leeds 3 years ago while I was in my final year at uni. I didn’t really know anything about it, or how different it was to my church background! God really used this to change my life, filling me with the Holy Spirit and growing me. Now I’m really excited to be getting involved in student work at church, and outreach through our tots group. I am passionate about seeing students and twenties grow in their faith and discover true community and relationship with God while they’re away from home.”
