On Wednesday, November 4, Point University held the Impact Day with partner, The Chattahoochee Valley Fuller Center. One day each semester, Point gives students, faculty and staff the opportunity to serve the Greater Valley area. Over 400 students, faculty and staff served at 25 different homes. Volunteers from other local businesses, including Batson and Cook also participated in the bi-annual volunteer event.

Volunteers painted houses, repaired porches, and cleaned up yards along 1st Avenue for homeowners.

“Point students are determined to make an impact on the world in which we live,” said Wye Huxford, vice president of spiritual formation and dean of the chapel.

“That impact often gets reflected back into their own lives and the old saying about getting more out of ministry than you give rings true in the lives of many students.”

Impact Day has been a Point University program since the spring of 2008. Over that period of time, thousands of hours of volunteer service – from picking up litter to tutoring students, from working on houses to fixing up playgrounds. The mission of Point University is “to educate students for Christ-centered service and leadership throughout the world” and the university believes that idea is demonstrated no better than in the willingness of our students to serve the community in which they live.
