OYC: This Baptism Won't Be Stopped!

This week, an usual set-up for a baptism at one of our OYC sites. While preparing to fill the baptism pool, the water faucet broke off at the wall, sending water spraying out all over the balcony! Some quick-witted OYC guys devised a "water slide" from a yoga mat and got the pool filled (and the water main turned off!) in time for an encouraging baptism.

OYC: When You've Been Told You're Not Ready

How do you get ready for an One Year Challenge when you have been told you're not ready to go? Watch this week's episode of The OYC Guys for some encouragement. Being told you're not ready doesn't mean "no", it means "get trained!"

OYC: Daniel's Experience

This week we celebrate the arrival of an entire family of four at one of our OYC sites! These parents of two young children were baptized in the teens and campus ministries of the Mission Point Christian Church in San Antonio, which has sent many disciples to church plantings locally and around the world. We are encouraged by their faith!

Considering the One Year Challenge? Don't worry about being a spiritual superstar or super talented in ministry. Just go!

In this week's episode of The OYC Guys, Daniel shares how God used him—and is still using him—on his OYC despite his weaknesses and struggles.

New OYC Site, and Surprise! Who's that OYC Guy?

This week, we added a new campus One Year Challenge site – Boone, North Carolina! 

Boone is a typical college town: it's top employer is Appalacian State University, and the student population exceeds the local population. The new church planting is led by Tim and Brooke Kidwell and is focussed on reaching students. Already there have been two baptisms! You can learn more about this OYC site here
