Youth IMPACT 2023

Teens: bring your youth group or a friend for a dynamic 20 hours at Appalachian Bible College. The weekend will be filled with group games, worshipful music, engaging skits, food and prizes, and hopefully a little sleep. But the heart of IMPACT is three focused sessions when you'll be challenged and encouraged by studies in God's Word.
