One Year Challenge
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!"
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.
This week we welcome Budapest, Hungary as the newest One Year Challenge site! The Budapest Church of Christ is looking for brothers and sisters with spiritual ambition to impact Hungary for Christ, one person at a time. They want to restart the campus ministry and reach the over 150,000 students studying in Budapest. They also want to restart a young professionals ministry. You can learn more at the One Year Challenge website.
So far in 2017, we've received 56 registrations from disciples interested in a One Year Challenge! At the same time last year, we'd had only 39 registrations. We're on track for over 200 OYC registrations this year.
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.
This week, one of the OYC guys returns after his honeymoon, and we celebrate a baptism in Berlin. Welcome, Katarina, to the family of God! We pray for many more to come to faith in Jesus in Berlin, and all over the world.
What if I don't know German or Norwegian? Can I still do an OYC? The OYC guys talk about a frequent concern of those wanting to serve abroad—language.
