I would have never even considered studying the Bible for myself apart from how God used Travis and Impact to challenge my walk with God while I was attending UMKC. The seeds that were planted by Impact and Travis’s personal mentorship were ground breaking, and the call to ministry was, for the first time, clear to me.
Through Impact, God has established me in His grace (Now active in 7 ministries across the states; Inner City sports clubs, 2 church plants, Kid ministry within the local church, Pastoral training and discipleship of younger men, a ministry in writing, and a ministry in teaching the Bible). God has enabled me to take part in foreign missions (5 countries spanning 6 months and potentially one more month in Southeast Asia this August). And God has given me a life saturated in Who He is and His heart for people.
Impact made an impact in my life and by extension has affected hundreds more with the glorious gospel. It planted the seed of God’s Word into my heart. It planted a fire within my bones that cannot be quelled and my life, although obscured in uncertainty, is certainly grounded in God’s grace.
After graduating from UMKC, Chad attended seminary at Maryland Bible College and Seminary. He now lives in the Kansas City area with his wife, Rae.
