One of the pillars for CCN is Bible Study. We evangelize on the campus and invite students to Bible studies. We teach on the following subjects: evangelism, apologetics, theology, character building, ministry training. You can see more about our pillars by going here.
Here is a picture of Campus Leader Jake in Minnesota preaching the gospel.
Jake met up with Tom Hacker in Rochester MN. Jake had the following to say about their outreach:
“ We handed out about 200 tracts, open air preached, and had some great one to one witnessing. Elizabeth (pictured) saw us walking by with the cross and shouted out "I love that...it is so true.” We stopped and talked with her for about 20 minutes. She turned out to be Roman Catholic and didn't understand why Jesus died on the cross, but knew that it was important. After taking her through the good test, she said that she was afraid of going to hell. I explained to her that it was good to fear God and that it is the beginning of wisdom. I then shared the good news with her. She was very grateful and took a DVD.”
“We preached for about 2 hours near the Mayo clinic. It was very busy with hundreds of people passing by on the street. I was amazed by how many people stopped and thanked us. This is very unusual, but awesome!
Not everyone was pleased with us though. We had one strange heckler who called himself "The Woodsman.” He claimed to be a Christian, but couldn't tolerate the Word of God. Then there was Eva. She screamed every cuss word in the book at Tom as she passed by with her stroller and 2 small children. After we finished preaching, we came across this angry woman half a block away. Tom offered her a tract, but she just yelled at him again. I then asked her why she was so angry. It turns out that she was offended by Tom's shirt that reads "Abortion is Murder.” She told me that she aborted her baby because she had been raped. She admitted that it was murder and that murder is wrong. She kept going back and forth saying that it was wrong, and then justifying it on account of the rape. It was a very heartbreaking conversation, but she did soften up to me and I prayed with her and left her with a Bible.
CCN Bible Studies at Pitt and SRU finished up for the semester. We had a great semester of learning. Thank you for supporting our outreaches and teachings.
The summer time brings many different kinds of outreaches. One of my favorite outreaches is our booths as community days. We have about 7 booths planned for the summer and fall months. I am very excited about them. The booth currently looks like this when it is set up.
We are able to witness to many people in our local communities in a friendly manor.
I have been going to the local abortion clinics a few days during the week. It is great to go during the week since there are no deathscorts during that time. This allows the interactions between me and the ladies going into the clinic to be more natural and less stressful. Please pray for all the people that go down there to beg for babies lives and give the gospel.
Ryan our CCN Campus Leader in Ohio lead a team at Ohio Fire. Here is a picture of the team that he lead.
I was also granted the opportunity to serve as a team leader for Ohio Fire. This is a conference run by Striving for Eternity. I was blessed to help people grow in their own witnessing ministry.
Leah and I were blessed to be able to witness to 2 JW's. I was worried about being in a longer conversation while I was the team lead so I handed over the conversation to Chris and then he handed over the conversation to Andrew. They stayed around for about 2.5 hours to hear the gospel. Please pray for ED on the left and Eric on the right. Eric was worried about loosing salvation and I was happy to give him the true gospel and explain several passages to him. He left knowing he had to go look up several passages again. During the time I talked to him his eyes seemed to be opening. They left with homework.
I was asked to get up on the box as an example of how to open air.
Several people got up on the box for the first time at this event. The one gentleman that joined our group later even though he was not a part of my group said that if Jen can get up and do it then I can. He did a wonderful job.
Leah has tons of Scripture memorized and people would stop for a few seconds to listen to her recite Scripture. It was very inspiring for all of us to see just how much she memorized.
Here you can see Amynah our CCNY Campus Leader finishing out the night with the gospel while others in our group witnessed to those passing by. Amynah helped people come out of their comfort zone at the outreach as well.
We were able to buy tracts for the campus leaders and for Repent and Witness. We bought Bibles for the Campus Leaders to bring for the students to use during fellowship. We received a large donation that allowed us to purchase these. Thank you.
Thank you for making CCN Ministry possible.
