OYC Guys Blooper Reel!

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
