In the summer of 2014, disciples from the Clemson Foothills Church dispersed throughout the world: to China, the Bahamas, India, Guatemala, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, and throughout the United States. Campus disciples used the three months off from our university course schedule to experience growth, spiritual nourishment, and learn indispensable ministry skills that we’ll bring back to strengthen the Clemson Foothills Church this year and glorify God.
As a One Year Challenge site, we’ve been blessed with several brothers and sisters who answered a Macedonian call. They give a year of their life to serve God in an especially devoted way. Others give a year to their local ministry, some go to serve the poor. Some, like those who have come to help us, go the mission field to help with a church planting or re-building.
There are multiple South African churches looking to build up their campus ministries through the One Year Challenge!

A few months back, my then 18-year-old daughter texted me. It read, “What would you think about me going sky-diving?” This took a few minutes to process. I knew what I thought: “Of course not! I don’t want you to do anything dangerous. Don’t go skydiving, drive anywhere in the car, walk across the street and definitely – never talk to boys! No, don’t go.” But thankfully, I had a little time to compose myself and I wrote back, “Go for it, hon. I’m proud of you. Skydive your heart out.”
The Providence, Rhode Island church is looking for primarily young singles and campus students to come on the One Year Challenge and help build a church in Providence. With a student population of 35,000, there is a great need for the message of Jesus.
Come and serve God in The Greater Nashville Church of Christ on the One Year Challenge! The Nashville church is looking for disciples willing to serve in their campus ministries. With 100,000 students at five different universities, there are many in need of the message you can bring.
