Illuminate the Future: New Stage Lighting

Join hands with Impact Church (one church, two locations) and the Ohio Valley Youth Network (the OVYN is the 501c3 Non-Profit that owns and runs the Sycamore Youth Center) as we embark on an inspiring journey to uplift our community's talents and spirits! We are thrilled to announce a collaborative fundraiser aimed at raising $15,500 to install new stage lighting systems at both the Impact Weirton Campus and the Impact Steubenville Campus, which is housed at the Sycamore Youth and Community Center.

About Impact Church and Ohio Valley Youth Network:
Impact Church, driven by its unwavering commitment to positive change, is teaming up with the Ohio Valley Youth Network to create transformative opportunities for the Ohio Valley. Rooted in faith, both Impact and the OVYN provide a nurturing environment for minds to grow, thrive, and encounter Jesus in meaningful and authentic ways. This joint endeavor signifies the dedication to fostering growth, creativity, and faith-based encounters in the Ohio Valley. With the Sycamore Youth and Community Center serving as our shared hub, we're ready to amplify our impact even further.

The Need for New Stage Lighting:
The heart of this mission lies in nurturing talents, inspiring leadership, and fostering authentic connections. However, the current stage lighting situation poses challenges that hinder the full realization of these goals. Most recently during the Valley’s Got Talent: Youth Edition. Outdated breakers from as far back as 1870 are in use, requiring manual intervention to turn them on and off. This not only compromises safety but also restricts the potential of our performances and events. Upgrading to modern stage lighting systems will ensure seamless, impactful experiences that leave a lasting impression on our youth and community.

A Journey to Illuminate:
You are invited to be a part of this transformative journey. Your support will directly fund the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of advanced stage lighting systems at both the Impact Weirton and Impact Steubenville Campuses. These systems will empower our youth to shine their brightest, fostering creativity, expression, and growth in an environment filled with hope. The center alone offers over 51 after-school programs, including Bible studies, youth ministries, theater, dance, boys and girls clubs, leadership initiatives, and practical life skills classes like cooking, salesmanship, and home and auto repair.

How You Can Make a Difference:
  • Donate: Your contribution, regardless of size, will have a profound impact. Your generosity will directly shape the future experiences of our youth.
  • Spread the Word: Share our fundraiser among your circles, amplifying our collective efforts and rallying support for the cause.
  • Get Involved: If you're passionate about nurturing young talents and spreading positivity, consider volunteering your time and expertise for organizing fundraising events.

The Impact of Your Support:
By joining hands, you're investing in more than just lighting systems. You're investing in a brighter, more hopeful future for the community. The Impact Church and Ohio Valley Youth Network are dedicated to creating stages where dreams come to life, potential is unleashed, and faith is strengthened.

Together, let's light up the path to greatness and provide a platform for our community.
