Impact 2017: Camp Meeting Re-imagined will kick off next month. Impact, the name for this redesigned style of camp meeting, will include three regional meetings this year—one in the southern and northern regions of Virginia as well as a Hispanic meeting. “We are taking the re-imagined camp meeting experience to where our members are by having meetings in different areas of our conference,” says Rick Jordan, vice president for pastoral ministries. “Impact is meant to be a time of fellowship and profound inspiration, training and outreach.”
One general Impact for all constituents to come together will be held every five years, with regional meetings being held in each area of the conference within that five-year period. Regional meetings will be planned and supported by office staff, local pastors and members, who will also choose the event’s theme and length of time. Impact 2018 will be a general meeting for all Potomac members and is scheduled for June 19-23, 2018.
