Impact Church began in 1998 when the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals drafted Andre Wadsworth. Who would have thought the NFL would have caused a church to start! Andre was the #3 overall draft pick out of Florida State (the highest draft pick ever out of FSU - don't hold that against him) and when he came to Arizona he had a desire to do more than just play football; that desire was to start a Bible study for his teammates and see them impacted for Christ. Starting with just a few families in his home - that Bible study has now become Impact Church!
Travis Hearn is the Senior Pastor of Impact with Andre serving as his Executive Pastor. Not only do the two look exactly alike – but they think a lot alike - eerie! Before Impact, Travis and his wife Natalie helped start and establish a church in Arizona that grew from 0-5000 in just 8 short years. Travis also serves as the Team Chaplain for the Phoenix Suns and for the Oakland A’s Major League Baseball Team during Spring Training.
Well there you have it! Impact Church has been exploding with growth and excitement! We’re glad you’re checking us out and we hope you consider being a part of the Impact dream!
