Impact Missions began as a “brand” for us back in 1995
when the Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) held its first Impact Virginia! mission camp. These camps grew in their success, popularity, and meaningfulness and continue today as one of our hands-on opportunities for students and their leaders. In 2021 the Mission Development Team of the BGAV (which operates the Impact! Mission Camps) chose to capitalize on the reputation of those camps and brand all its hands-on missions and ministries under the name Impact Missions. Each of the programs and ministries has had its own success in so many ways and we knew that all of them had such a deep and meaningful impact across the globe that the term just made sense.
Our roots are firmly within the BGAV which remains as our governing body and “home” for all that we accomplish. Being a part of the BGAV is not just important to us – it is who we are. And yet, we are more, just as the BGAV is more than its name might suggest. Read more about the BGAV here.
Our history is rich in so many ways and we are excited to chart a future that multiplies that wealth into ways yet to be imagined.
