Impact's History

A decision on February 22, 1970 was made to begin a new church in Moon Township. West Hills Christian Church as it was first named held its first meeting on April 19, 1970 in the Moon Junior High School and fourteen people became members that day. In the next 2 years the congregation was able to hire its first full-time minister and to purchase our former Thorn Run Road property. In 1976 construction on the first building was completed. Additional space was added in 1981, 1995 and 1997.

Through the years the church grew in size and impact, offering ministries such as the Mile of Cans community food drive, an Easter event called Behold The Lamb, a Christmas drive through nativity, short term mission trips, etc. 

While searching for a new Senior Minister in 2007, the leadership determined they wanted to reach the community in a greater way. After 2 years of searching, Steve Hammer accepted the call to lead the church forward. 

In early 2010 our congregation chose a new name. Emphasizing our desire to make a positive difference in our community and world, we are now Impact Christian Church.

In late 2017, following God's leading, our congregation moved to a larger location with the purpose of continuing to be used by Him to reach our community.  We opened a community center called The Landing which is open daily to all members of the community, not just our church.  We renovated this facility to include an auditorium, meeting rooms, a café, turf field, basketball court, Foamnasium, etc.

We are excited about how God is moving us forward as we commit ourselves to Pursue God, Build Community, & Unleash Compassion.
