BooneThis 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

Wait a second, that's not Rocky! This week's OYC Guys video features a guest appearance by June, who shares how she was met by an OYCer shopping for bread.   

New content this week on the OYC blog:

  • Stop Trying to Find What God Has Hidden: Stop waiting for a sign. Shed the extra-biblical ideas that feed your “finding God’s will” obsession.

  • Great Images: Ireneus This graphic gives us a crash course on a very important Christian thinker, Irenaeus.

  • What We're Reading Today: This week's featured excerpt for disciples considering the OYC is taken from Thomas Jones and Michael Fontenot’s The Prideful Soul’s Guide To Humility.

  • Evangelizing Nones Won’t Be the Same as Evangelizing Nominals: Secular people aren’t sitting around saying, “Man, if there was just a better version of the church, I would go to it!”

  • Great Missionary Lives: Patrick He made missionary journeys all over Ireland, and it soon became known as one of Europe’s Christian centers. This, of course, was very important to fifth-century Christians, for whom Ireland was one of the “ends of the earth.”

  • Monday Music: Songs from OYC Sites around the World Every week we'll share some music from places where we have OYC sites. This week’s Monday Music is from Bolivia!
