To join the Impact Team, we do have a few requirements:
The AZ impact Team is a youth-based group, open to Christian teenagers in grades 8 through 12. We do allow some 7th graders, if they have impeccable recommendations. Also, if you have been part of our group prior to your 12th grade year, we allow you to join for a Super-Senior year. We have room for singers, musicians, and audio/video techs. If you have a special talent, interests, hobbies, and want to glorify God with it, we want to know about it!
The Impact Team is going to look a bit different than it has in years past, as the pandemic has made us reevaluate how we do and what our ministry looks like. With that, this year will be a bit different, and may change as the year goes on. But, our mission remains the same:
Again, this looks different than in years past, and may be flexible during the year! We will work hard to get weekend schedules out as soon as possible for each Impact Team Weekend!
When our time begins on a Friday, we will meet Friday at 7:00PM (September and October for sure.) These weekends include extra time for connecting with each other, as well as more intensive practice time. Friday nights we stay at the host church, which involves sleeping on the floor. Many teens bring air mattresses to make this more comfortable. If we stay a Saturday night, night, teens might be housed with local church members and are encouraged to connect with these families while in their homes. For now, this likely won’t happen this year. Meals and snacks are provided by Impact Team and the local church. We do our best to accommodate dietary needs, but also rely on the teens to monitor their respective allergies and sensitivities.
When our time begins on a Saturday, we begin Saturday at Noon. These weekends have abbreviated game/fun time and "refresher" practice time. Saturday night, teens may stay at eh church with the Team, or may be housed with local church members and are encouraged to connect with these families while in their homes. Meals and snacks are provided by Impact Team or the local church. We do our best to accommodate dietary needs, but also rely on the teens to monitor their respective allergies and sensitivities.
Not every weekend will include a Sunday morning this year, but when we do include Sundays, we will attend Sunday School with the local youth group, then take part of the morning worship service. Following the service, we pack and load up, then eat lunch provided by the local church. After cleanup- we may travel to a second church and take part of an evening worship service. Following the service, we pack and load up, then eat dinner provided by the local church. After dinner and cleanup is completed, teens are dismissed for the weekend. This is generally around 7:30PM, but may vary from one weekend to the next.
We look forward to hearing from you, and are praying for you as you consider applying to be part of the AZ Impact Team. Contact Eddie with any questions! Contact
