In January 2007, Lead Pastor Olu Brown peered through the windows of Brown Middle School Auditorium and saw the perfect beginning of his vision for a multicultural gathering of people who would be committed to sharing the love of Christ with the world. Within months, Impact launched a second worship experience. By 2008, Impact welcomed 1,000 worshipers at Impact Church each week. In December 2009, Impact constituted as a United Methodist Church.
In 2014, Impact Church renewed its vision, purchased, and redeveloped a 76,000 sf warehouse and 10 acres of land for a new multi-use worship and ministry center. Phase I opened May 2014. In 2016, Impact Church was listed as number 56 out 100 fastest growing churches in America.
