Are you ready for ?

Join us at Shorter University for IMPACT, a summer camp that offers strategic teaching, worship, and recreation that fosters life-changing conversations, long-term relationships, and deeper intimacy with Christ among students and leaders.

What is IMPACT?

IMPACT is different, because it is designed as a catalyst for life-changing conversations. As students worship, discuss, play, and eat with their small group, trained leaders are intentionally engaging them with spiritual conversations to promote deeper intimacy with Christ.

Ask anyone who has attended IMPACT -- there is no better place to see students grow in their walk with Jesus!

Stephen Dervan


Stephen Dervan

Originally from Albany, Georgia, Stephen grew up in a broken home where church attendance wasn’t a priority. He came to faith in Christ as a teenager and felt a call to the ministry soon thereafter. He married his high school sweetheart, Rebecca, and God has blessed them with five children, Cade, Cole, Casen, Carrington, and Caylor.

He has been in full-time ministry for over two decades, serving churches in Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida. Passionate about teaching God’s Word in a way that connects people to Christ, he believes that the local church is God’s "Plan A" to reach the World. He is passionate about sharing his faith, making world disciples, and equipping others to do the same. Stephen holds a Master of Divinity from Liberty University Baptist Theological Seminary and is the lead pastor of Oak Hill Church in Williamson, Georgia.

“One week at IMPACT helps commission student disciples, in a context that puts us in a position to disciple other students, who will then disciple more students.”
