The first group of Impacters, Christmas 2007
Through a crazy series of God-ordained events, a core team of five students and recent college grads was formed. Under the oversight of Kumar and John Mark, Impact Ministries was born in the fall of 2007.
In 2009, as God led 4 of the original 5 to new season of life, Travis Hamm became the sole Campus Missionary. Since then Impact has taken various formats as we have sought to effectively make disciples on the campus of UMKC. We have seen students come to know Jesus, be called into full time ministry, get married and start raising a family, be active members of local churches, and disciple others. We have at times had a presence on the neighboring Rockhurst University, though UMKC remains our primary focus.
