What is Impact?
The NCO Impact Team is a group of 40-50 High School aged teens and adult staff that travel the North-Central Ohio area and join in Worship with churches and congregations. The choir is accompanied by our worship band (or music tracks), with our goal being to "Spread the love of Christ through Worship". We meet one weekend a month: 7 months of the year. During each Impact weekend, the team spends time bonding while becoming life-long friends - we share in each other’s wins and losses and learn from/support each other. We’re joined because of the commonality of Jesus being at the center of our lives!
At each scheduled Impact weekend, we all meet at the designated church on Saturday afternoon. We catch-up, fellowship, and practice until dinner. After more fellowship, devotions, and prayer on Saturday night, we stay in host homes (provided by the church) and then all come back together on Sunday morning to worship with the congregation. We then eat lunch (provided by the church), and when finished and all packed up, we travel to the next scheduled church where we will set up, rehearse, and eat dinner – all before worshipping with another congregation that evening! Then it’s time to pack up and go home, counting down the days until next time!
To prepare for these weekends of worship time, we spend a full week of camp on the beautiful campus of Mount Vernon Nazarene University. We learn all the music, study the Bible, and play games, all while learning about gifts, our calling, and our purpose. We have a LOT of fun, sing a LOT, cry, pray, and laugh a LOT together! This team makes a huge IMPACT on the teens and their families before we even visit the first church on the schedule!

It's my family. I love worshipping with my best friends
