Unashamed Impact gives an opportunity that fosters the visions of young leaders and provides the tools they need to grow and create change in their city to their fullest potential. The goal is to gather, equip and send out. We disciple, activate and encourage our city teams through 4 dynamics: Fellowship, Making an Impact (Social Justice & Community Outreach), Being a living Example and Evangelism. We are a ministry/movement outside the four walls of the church bringing hope to those who will not step foot into a church through social media, community events and outreach. Our city chapters range from South Africa to the Dominican Republic and all across the US. Homeless outreach, orphanage visits & activities, nursing home visits, clothing drives, beach/community clean ups and Domestic Violence Awareness Brunches are just a few examples of what our young adults have organized.
Do you feel social media helps or hinders us in creating community and building relationships? We believe that Social Media has played a role in hindering the spiritual growth of the Body and has also had an effect on relationship building in general. It has become a source of addiction, especially for young teenagers. It serves as a replacement method for people who seek to exploit their personal information and feelings. The social media world can be a dangerous place for people who use it as an outlet for negativity or who are easily influenced to conform to the evil patterns of this world.
On the other hand, Unashamed Impact has a lot of social media influence. It is what we use to connect and reach out to people all across the globe in order to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Saying that you are a Christian means that you are to represent Christ in all that you do, and signing up for Unashamed Impact means that you represent the ministry in what you do, say, and post, even on your personal accounts. We’ve dedicated an entire team to just that! The Unashamed Impact Social Media Team consists of the dedicated individuals who are accepted into our internship program to participate in our missions behind the scenes, by using various social media networks and blogging tactics to spread the Good News and to inform the public of UI events and social justice efforts. UI has a lot of Social Media influence and we plan to use it all for the Glory of God. All Social Media interns are required to receive the SM and Online Safety Agreement upon signing up which includes the standards and code of conduct the interns are held accountable to follow.
