Ideal Impact helping ministries throughout Texas to fund critical needs

Ideal Impact, Inc. ( made another step towards its goal of generating $1 billion for Christian ministry purposes: the signing of Bill Glass Champions For Life ( to an energy savings contract. Since its founding March 2009, Ideal Impact has also implemented energy savings contracts with Church at the Cross and Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, both in Grapevine.

"Energy savings is a means to an end," states Ideal Impact CEO Wes McDaniel, who estimates his company will generate nearly $1.4 million of savings during the next 15 years for these three customers. "Reducing operational costs and lowering utility expenses are often overlooked and underestimated ways to recoup budget funds and spend on more important needs."

The three-year Active Revenue Creation contract estimates Bill Glass Champions For Life administrative facility, which encompasses approximately 10,000 square feet, will save $2,265 annually through the implementation of a customized energy plan, as well as ongoing energy education training for the staff. Projected savings over a 15-year period is approximately $52,850. Most significantly, the contract required no upfront costs and is a positive cash flow project.

Bill Glass Champions for Life, founded in 1969, is a national and international ministry, with a large focus on prison ministry across the United States. Founder Bill Glass was a consensus All American football player at Baylor and played in the National Football League for the Cleveland Browns.

"Bill Glass Champions for Life appreciates the opportunity to partner with Ideal Impact in an effort to reduce energy expense for the ministry. The funds saved will be used to take the good news of Jesus Christ to 'the least of these' in prisons, juvenile facilities and schools across America and around the world," states James Subers, chief executive officer for Bill Glass' Champions for Life. "This venture is especially meaningful as Wes McDaniel and Boyne McHargue (Ideal Impact's sales director) are teammates with Champions for Life and share the gospel in the prisons during our Weekend of Champions and Day of Champions events."
