Impact Clubs Training 2019 RECAP

What an incredible week at Impact Clubs Training this year!

On Sunday, twelve teens arrived at First Baptist Church and settled in for what would be an action-packed week. We had six new team members this year and six returning summer missionaries.

Monday was a long day for everyone as we began going through a lot of new material, including an introduction to this year’s Bible lessons centered around the life of Gideon. Our team tried out teaching bible verses, games, songs and more. Kiannah and Hannah did a great job choreographing all three of our club songs this year so the team could start learning the motions!

We also started putting together Day 1 of our Hudson Taylor skit. Each day of the skit is about five minutes long and ends with a cliffhanger! This team is so creative and blew us away with the way they worked together.

Tuesday was when the week started to absolutely fly by. Each teen had a certain number of evaluations they needed to complete during the week. They would study a Bible verse, Bible lesson or the Wordless Book gospel presentation and then teach what they had studied to a staff member. Evaluations can be very intimidating, but this year every team member attacked their evaluations with energy and clarity! Everyone on the team got an evaluation knocked out by Day 2 and we’re so proud of them.

Cam and Jeb put a lot of thought into leading game practice time. Each day of ICT they had a different game set up that required lots of teamwork while incorporating elements of actual game times the ICTers will experience with kids at clubs this summer.

Wednesday came and our Impact Clubs shirts finally arrived! Due to shipping confusion we didn’t have our gold shirts or dark shirts for Days One and Two but by Wednesday we finally had our red shirts.

Fun moments from Wednesday:

We were blessed by God’s people in so many ways this week! Every day a different friend of Hope for Kids brought lunch and dinner for our whole team and our whole kitchen was stocked with food donations for breakfasts and snacks. God provided for us in so many ways!

Pastor Matt taught Regroup devotions every night. We are so thankful for his wisdom and example!

Thursday came and we couldn’t believe we were already nearing the end of the week. More fun game time:

We made so much progress on our skit! We can’t wait to share this with all the kids we will meet this summer.

We had Hope for Kids board member Raquel come out to lead one of our classes. Such a blessing!

Friday was a great day as everyone finished out their evaluations, put on a practice Impact Club incorporating everything they learned this week and graduated from camp. We are so incredibly proud of them. New team members caught on to all the new material so quickly and returning team members tackled this year with more excellence and energy than ever before.

God is going to use these teens in amazing ways this summer, and we are so proud of every one of them. We’ll be heading to this year’s first week of clubs in just a couple days—stay tuned for lots of pictures and updates from Impact Clubs 2019!
