Welcome to the Impact 2018 New Growth webpage where you will find all the current information about this event that takes place on April 27-28. Thank you to our host church, Sardis Fellowship, for stepping up to be our hosts this year. We look forward to seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends over this two day event.
With our focus on Church Planting, we've dubbed this year as New Growth. At Impact 2017, our churches approved a new vision for our Fellowship to "innovatively develop relationships and resources that propel every Fellowship Pacific church to be accountable to their gospel mandate." From that we set a number of goals, one of which is to plant 30 additional congregations over the next five years. Come to Impact to hear more about how your church can help drive this mission as we partner together to see a God-honouring impact across our region.

Fellowship Sunday - "Time to Grow" from the Book of Acts
When & Where: Sunday, April 29, 2018 at Fellowship Churches around our region (or a date of your choosing).
What: introduced several years ago and continued at the request of our churches, Fellowship Sunday is a time for your church to learn more about the greater family that we are all a part of. It also gives your pastor a break from preparing a sermon after attending Impact 2018. We will provide you with a 20 minute video message from our Regional Director, David Horita as well as a series of short (3-5 minute) video briefs from our churches as they invite you to partner with them on mission. Click on the button below to view and download these videos from our website.
Finally, you will receive a supply of the Impact 2018 Yearbook, a colourful booklet of stories from around our region.
You won't want to miss this year's BIG event at Impact 2018!. Thank you to Baptist Housing for partnering with us to bring you this fun-filled evening. This is not your typical dressy sit-down banquet. But it's also not a ho-down. So think somewhere in between, casual, but chic. Details as follows:
- Date & Time: Friday, April 27th, 5:30 pm
- Location - Fantasy Farms, 9423 Gibson Rd, Chilliwack
- Indoor venue in converted barn
- The best Barbeque in the Fraser Valley (so we've been told) - come and enjoy the feast!
