Happening Ecumenical and I.M.P.A.C.T. are two powerful Christian renewal experiences, sponsored by The Happening Ecumenical, Inc. They are high school and college-age weekends held in Kansas City, USA, Northeast Kansas and SW Missouri area. (In 2004, Happening was offering its |weekend #120, and IMPACT, its #15 )
The aim of Happening Ecumenical is to provide a weekend in which the focus of talks and discussions are on and about the person and teachings of Jesus Christ. The "Happening" gives those who attend the desire to understand and serve within the church community.
What's more, it provides a means to continue the Christian formation which begins with the "Happening" experience. During the weekend, candidates participate in small discussion groups and worship services, singing, viewing films, playing games and sharing their understanding of "what it means to be a Christian" with other youth.
