Who is IMPACT Atlanta for?
We are inviting young adults, ages 18-35, to join us for IMPACT Atlanta, but we’re not wanting just any one. As in Judges 7, we’re trusting God to impress a new generation of GODfollowing disciples to join us. Here’s a blog expressing in more detail who iATL is seeking, https://ignitionblog.wordpress.com/2010/05/14/impact-atlanta-aint-for-everyone/
Forming Leadership Habits & Attitudes
Dr. Tim Elmore, president of Growing Leaders, will be equipping iATL delegates with leadership habits and attitudes, sharpening their ability to make a positive impact in their church and community. Elmore trains middle school, high school and college students with the skills they need to become authentic leaders with huge potential to transform society. Since founding Growing Leaders, Elmore has spoken to more than 250,000 students, faculty and staff on hundreds of campuses across the country, including Stanford University, Duke University, Rutgers University, the University of South Carolina, the University of North Carolina, Florida State University and Baylor University. Elmore has also provided leadership training and resources nationally for the Future Farmers of America and multiple athletic programs including, the University of Texas football team, the Jacksonville State University football team and the Kansas City Royals.

IMPACT Atlanta Tip #243
Pack your own food. Although we offer an array of housing and meal packages for your convenience, you may find it more economical to prepare your own food. The housing at Georgia State University includes kitchenette amenities, making food prep simple. http://tour.circlepix.com/tour.htm?id=527388
