Frequently Asked Questions
Impact World, or IW, is more than an event, it’s an interdenominational movement! Most effort is spent before and after the proclamation events. There are three primary phases in the campaign:
A successful campaign is built on complete spiritual, as well as organizational preparation. Spiritual preparation involves mobilizing the city to focused prayer and calling the church to true biblical Christianity. Organizational preparation includes recruiting and training hundreds of workers.
Picture up to 100 missionaries and evangelists from around the world converging in your city, visiting schools and prisons. The evangelistic nights begin in large public venues with a powerful presentation of God’s truth and love. Hundreds stream to the front, responding to a relevant Gospel message.
Discipleship best describes this phase. Working with the local Body of Christ, each person is contacted by a counselor and invited to a small group in their neighborhood or school. Our aim is that each believer is nurtured and grounded in their faith and empowered to “live the life” in their community and the world.
