IMPACT Fall Retreat
An incredible weekend unfolded for BVU’s Campus Ministry IMPACT on September 12-14.  Forty- five students, ranging from first year to fourth year students, along with BVU Chaplain Ken Meissner, and AmeriCorp Vista, Jessica Henrich, traveled to Hidden Acres near Dayton, IA for IMPACT’s annual fall retreat.   BVU Alum, Pastor Russ Weller, shared three messages; “What is My Purpose?”  “God is Not Dead” and “Urgency.”  The weekend was filled with praise and worship plus time for prayer, meeting new people, singing and laughter, and celebrating communion together. Students enjoyed great food, trail-riding with the camp’s horses, indoor pool, black-light dodgeball, the GIANT 3-person Swing, canoeing, paddleboats, Gaga-ball, campfire and smores!  IMPACT’s annual fall retreat is free to students and is a great opportunity to de-stress.  For more information on IMPACT and BVU Spiritual Life, click on http://www.bvu.edu/bv/spiritual-life/impact.dot
