Fusion Impact

Fusion Impact is a summer missions training and sending program created for high school students. It functions like a mini version of the Fusion Program. The core objective is to provide first steps for students toward a lifetime of making disciples for God’s glory.

Fusion Impact seeks to transform high school students into young leaders by providing the opportunity to go and make disciples among unreached people groups. Students will be sent to work among such unreached peoples either internationally or in Kansas City, Missouri.

Fusion Impact students will be called to embrace their identity as ambassadors of Christ’s eternal Kingdom- not only for a summer, but for the rest of their lives!

Principles


Excellence

The Fusion Leadership team is aware of the great responsibility that comes with the training and sending young adults. In response, they are dedicated to excellence as they seek to mobilize high school students for a lifetime of faithfulness.

Life-on-Life Discipleship

Life-on-life discipleship within Fusion Impact serves to propel high school students forward in learning what it means to follow Jesus for the rest of their lives.

Fusion Impact students will be placed on a gender specific team called a cohort. Cohorts will be comprised of two or three high school students and an advocate who will lead the cohort. It is within this cohort structure that life-on-life discipleship will take place. These teams will participate in the Ready Week training together, take the Gospel to unreached people groups together, and debrief together at the end of the program.

Fusion Impact advocates will be chosen with great care as they will be trusted to lead the cohorts practically as well as spiritually. Fusion Impact advocates will disciple with diligence and lead their cohorts into the field with competence. Life-on-life discipleship looks like an advocate saying to his or her team, “Come with me as I follow Jesus!”

Adequate Training

Fusion Impact will be sending high school students to places that have great need for the Gospel. However, Fusion Impact will not be sending students to the kinds of hard places that the Fusion program targets. The main reason for this is that adequate training for such locations cannot be acquired during the week-long preparation of Training Week.

However, Fusion Impact students will receive the base-level training and preparation that is required for international travel. Cohorts will be equipped and sent as competent, dependable coworkers for our missionaries on the field.

Core Missionary Task

Fusion Impact seeks to send cohorts into the field for a short period of time (approximately 30 days). Nonetheless, Fusion Impact cohorts can make a genuine contribution to the long-term missionary efforts ongoing among an unreached people group. Fusion Impact students will come alongside long-term workers to partner with them in the core missionary task: entry, evangelism, discipleship, church formation, leadership development, and exit.

How much does it cost?


Cost of Participation in Fusion Impact amounts to $1,775 plus travel expenses. The full cost will be due June 7, 2021. (Two weeks before Training Week).

The Fusion Leadership team highly encourages students to begin the process of raising support as soon as possible by means of fundraisers, church sponsorship, etc.
