About Camping + Outdoor

Impact 2818 is the outdoor ministry of the Indiana Conference of The United Methodist Church. A lot of people ask about the name Impact 2818; what it means and why it was chosen to represent our outdoor ministries. In short, it represents our goal and purpose. Matthew 28:18-20 is the Great Commission where as Christ followers, we are being sent into the world on Jesus’ authority to make God’s transforming love known. Our desire is to leave a legacy with each generation we get to encounter and that they would go forth impacting this world for the sake of Christ. Impact 2818: Outdoor Ministries exist as a tool and extension of every local church, providing resources, spaces, and experiences that maximize ministry efforts and goals within the local faith community for the purpose of making disciples of Christ.
