    We had a wonderful time engaging with local residents again at the Hampton Community Days outreach in Hampton Township, PA.  Here Campus Leader Gene Henderson is shown administering the IQ test to festival goers before taking them through the good person test.  The IQ Test has been proven to be a wonderful ice breaker at many of our outreach events which not only draws in curious onlookers but also paves the way for the presentation of the law and the gospel.

    Recently CCN President Jenifer Pepling met with fellow Christians in New York City to proclaim the good news through open air preaching and one on one evangelism. Please pray for those who heard the gospel in the city that never sleeps that they might find rest in Christ for their weary souls.

    Back in Pottstown, PA Campus Leader Andre Goff shown here along with one of his church's youth group members hits the street lifting high the cross of Christ!  As shoes for their feet, no doubt, "having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace" (Ephesians 6:15) they stand fast in proclaiming the truth and righteousness.
    Are you ready?
    Ready to join CCN in prayerfully supporting our largest evangelistic outreach in the next few days in one of the most populated and diverse cities in the world? 
    From August 8th - 11th CCN will be hosting its 11th Annual Repent and Witness Evangelism Camp.  Imagine going to a place where you never have to draw crowds to preach the gospel, because almost everywhere you go, there are massive crowds of people from literally all over the world to preach to.  That's CCN's Repent and Witness Evangelism Camp in New York City!
    During this time please petition the Lord on behalf of all the saints attending Repent and Witness this year as we engage in activities such as biblical evangelism training, open air preaching in the city streets and subways, along with fellowship and worship, and one on one evangelism.
    Pray also that words may be given to us in opening our mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which we are ambassadors, that we may declare it boldly, as we ought to speak (Ephesians 6:19,20).
    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

  • CCN August News: Repent & Witness 2018, Local Outreach Booths, Rep and Prep

    With August there certainly came the heat but that's not all this month brought forth. Through CCN the LORD spread the gospel like wildfire!  

    Repent & Witness

    In what has become one of CCN's largest annual outreaches in one of the most diverse cities in the U.S. hundreds have come under the sound of the Gospel call in the gritty streets and subways of New York City through faithful disciples of Christ and campus missionaries. 

    R&W Team 2018

    Doubly Blessed

    Over the years God has blessed CCN with many outreach opportunities in our local communities.  This month CCN had not one but TWO outreach booths in Pittsburgh running simultaneously - Christian Praise Fest and Richland Community Days!  Please pray to the Lord of the Harvest that as He continues to provide increasing opportunities for ministry He will also send forth laborers into His harvest (Mt. 9:38).  

    Christian Praise Fest & Richland Community Days 

    Rep & Prep

    Representing not only our Savior and Lord but the CCN ministry as well aboard college campuses takes a great deal of preparation.  Which is why at the beginning of each school year CCN participates in what is called "Rep & Prep".  Please pray for our Campus Leaders and their students whom they are discipling that they would successfully labor towards reaching their goals and objectives for the 2018-2019 school year.

    MC3 representing!

    A Special Message For Our Donors...  

    Finally, CCN would like to thank all of our donors for their continued support of this ministry. Your faithful contributions make this possible!



  • July 2014 Praise Report

    CCN was asked to train up 100 youth to go out and share the gospel.  The students were encouraged and loved the teaching.  They learned why to use the law.  The students learned what the gospel is and how to share it.  They were taught some basic apologetic.  We were so grateful to serve in this way.  Below you can see Amynah and Aishah teaching the youth.

      

    Several Campus Leaders attended Jersey Fire this year.  Two of them served as team leaders during outreach.   Nick did a wonderful job as a team leader as well as with sharing the gospel via open air.

    Amynah did a wonderful job as well.  This young man heard and understood the gospel.

    We spent 3 days in NYC for Leadership Summit.   It was hard to pick which pictures to put into the newsletter, you can see more pictures here.  During 2 of the evenings and one of the mornings we went out for outreach.  Tim Jackson got to open air for the first time using IQ tests.  Tim did a wonderful job.  Here is a picture of him.

    Ryan got to proclaim the gospel in the subway to hundreds of people.  This was the first time Ryan shared this way in a subway station

    .

     We spent a few hours at Planned Parenthood.  We shared the gospel with many young ladies and the employees.  Here is a picture of Jen sharing the gospel.  We share the gospel first since it is the gospel that has the power to save.

    We also spent 4 days in NYC for Repent and Witness.  There were too many pictures and too many stories to share them all.  Repent and Witness Missionary trip pictures can be seen here.   

    It was so hard to pick which stories and which pictures to show you all.  Jake had a lesbian cry over her sins.  We had a gentleman who we have witnessed to for years thank us for answering his questions and being so kind to him.  We were told that he would no longer heckle us because of our kindness.  We witnessed to JW's and Mormons.  Jen talked to a gentleman named Jonathan that believed a little of everything was true.  We were able to talk to many people after open air sessions.  We gave away 8+ Bibles after open airing on the subway.  We ran out of Bibles to give out!  Jen was able to give pizza to a homeless couple and then gave them the gospel.  They told her afterward that she gave them joy and considered repenting and placing their faith in Jesus.

    Here is a picture of Jake sharing the gospel with the kids from a daycare in Battery Park.  He asked the people in charge and they said yes.  He gave a wonderful gospel presentation.  The kids really listened.  

    We had several firsts at Repent and Witness as well.  Todd did his first open air proclamation of the gospel.

    Several new people joined us in NYC this year and they all loved the event.  We invited many of the people that we witnessed to join us on Sunday morning for church in Union Square.  Several people did join us for church.  Jake witnessed to one young lady that brought her brothers to church.

    We were able to open air all weekend.  We had favor with the authorities.  We praise Jesus for that.

    We handed out hundreds of gospel tracts in Battery Park.  

    Jake asked permission to share the gospel with all the kids in a day care that was walking by.  It was a beautiful moment.  He spent about 15 minutes talking about God and the gospel with them.

    We had so many great one to one witnessing encounters.  Below Andrew from Striving for Eternity talks with people that we have been witnessing to for years and one that joined us for church.

    We shared the gospel in Central Park.  We had to pick a new location in Central Park due to a group of naked women were having their bodies painted in the park.  We did not want to tempt any of the men so we moved onto another location.  

    At the new location Jen almost had her foot run over by an angry Catholic.  Andrew talked to some devote Muslims and we proclaimed the gospel open air.  Here is a picture of Andre sharing the gospel.

    We preached in the subways.  Here is Nick sharing the gospel on the NYC subways.

    We stayed out late and shared the gospel at night.  Here is a picture of Ryan sharing the Gospel.

    Thank You so much for your support.  God Bless you.

     

  • Update August 2013

    August was full of God honoring ministry.   The Leadership Summit was successful, the Campus Leaders met the new Leadership of CCN.  We talked about the Vision of CCN: to evangelize the lost and disciple the found.  We are going to train up the next generation of soul winning leaders.  Every one of the Campus Leaders was greatly encouraged by the direction.  We made changes to the way CCN will be run.  Campus Leaders now have more control over what happens on their own campuses, and they are being provided additional support for the cost of tracts and other materials they regularly need on the Campuses.

    Repent and Witness, which is 4 days and 4 nights of witnessing went great.  We handouted tracts and open air evangelize and witness 1 -2 -1.  We went to places like Union Square, Washington Square, Times Square and Central Park.  We preached in each location and we even preached on the subway system while going from 1 location to another.  Here is a picture of our Repent and Witness missionaries.

    I enjoyed sharing the gospel with large crowds in Washington Square.

    We had church outside on Sunday and we had some of out hecklers from Saturday join us for the service.  We has several people that open air preached this week as well.  We often use trivia and IQ tests to gather a crowd to share the gospel.

    We preached at the Statton Island Fairy and thousands of people get to hear the gospel.

    If you want to see more pictures go here.

    CCN had a booth at the PineRichland Community Days.  It was cool that we were able to talk to people that we had talked to the year before.  Everyone who stopped by went through the gospel and got a teddy bear, a tract and a Bible (if they wanted one).  I got a letter from the township thanking us for participating in the event.  It is a great day when you can share the gospel and get asked to come back and do it next year.

    CCN taught an Evangelism Crash Course in Philidelphia.  We meet the young lady that asked us to do it at an outreach.  She was so encouraged by our outreach that she contacted us to do a Crash Course.   The students learned so much and they went out and shared the gospel after the Crash Course.

    Here is a testimony about the Crash Course from Amynah a Campus Leader:

    "Last year, at an outreach in Philly, I handed a girl a gospel tract and proceeded to share the gospel with her, little did I know the girl was already saved. In fact, she was the leader of a youth group at her local church. A year later, the same girl went on the CCN website, which was located at the bottom of the tract I gave her and she requested to host a CCN Crash Course at her church for her youth group (which consists of mostly 13-15 year old). After five hours of evangelism training, we took the entire group out to a local area to share the gospel and it was amazing! The students instantly engaged into conversations with many different people and passed out many gospel tracts. A young boy even said he wanted to do it again next Saturday. It's amazing seeing the fruit that can come from one simple gospel tract a year later."


    The following week CCN took a team down to the Planned Parenthood.  This was the first time down there for some and the second time for others.  Some of the team had does this for years.  We ended up driving a young lady home from downtown who was having issues.  We talked to many people before they went in.  We pray that some of those people that were going into make an appointment decided not to have an abortion.

    The Fall Semester is about to begin.  Please Pray for all the Campus Leaders.

    Thank You so much for your support.  The CCN Team would not be able to do all of these things without your support.
