  • CMT was a success

    CMT was a wonderful success.  The speakers did a wonderful job; everyone was encouraged and learned so much.  We had about 25 people each night which was wonderful.  We had 8 people out witnessing the first day and about 12 people on the other days.  We had hundreds of gospel conversations.We had a student hand out tracts for the first time.  We had a student open air preach for the very first time.

    One gentleman had this to say: “The Campus Mission Tour was legit! I enjoyed being surrounded by like minded souls searching for the lost, and was encouraged to be more active in the mission field wherever that may be. I developed skills, specifically speaking with college students, and had many great conversations." -Ryan S

     A young lady decided not to go into planned parenthood.  She had her hand on the door and was walking in when I asked her if she could give me a minute of her time.  She walked over to me and I shared the gospel with her.  I gave her info about help she can get in Pittsburgh and explained why not to go I to planned parenthood.  She walked away(without going in!) she thanked me for sharing with her.

    Another gentleman said: "For me, a self described introvert,  I can tell you that CCN has helped me to become a bold witness for Christ. What I've learned in theory through the School of Biblical Evangelism or by reading some of Ray Comfort's books I've been able to apply directly through CCN's ministry.

    People were very encouraged by the CMT to Go and share the gospel.

    The highlight for me was talking to a young transvestite, Shane.  I asked her if she died today would she go to heaven or hell?  She told me that because she helped the kids in her neighborhood she would go to heaven.  She talked about how her mother had abused her but she protected her brothers and sisters and did not want to be like her mother.  I explained justice and she decided that what I was telling her was true.   She said there was no reason not to repent and trust Jesus.  She agreed with the gospel message I gave her.  She took a Bible and a book about who God is Called “The Gospel of God”.  She cried and hugged me and thanked me.  She said she would read the book over spring break.  She said this is exactly what I was looking for.  Pray for Shane.

    God was glorified and Christians were encouraged and hundreds of people heard the gospel in 1 to 1 conversations.  Thousands of people received gospel tracts.

    You can see pictures from the CMT here.

    We used several methods to start conversations at the CMT.  We used scripture signs and people walked over to talk to us.  I was so surprised with how well they worked I will be ordering some more of these signs.

    We handed out tracts and when asked about the tracts we started conversations.  We also had Open Air Campaigners with us and they painted a message on a board and preached the gospel and that allowed us to start many conversations.

    We gave out over 10,000 tracts at the St Patrick's Day parade.  Many people heard the gospel at the parade.

  • College: Welcome to Enemy Territory

    If you are at all familiar with Christian Collegian Network (CCN) and the ministry they do on college campuses across the nation, then you know that these Missionaries in America are fighting on the front lines of a spiritual war. In fact, they’ve gone past the front line and have traversed into enemy territory, usually by themselves, without any cavalry to call for backup! CCN Campus Leaders are fighting every day to reach countless people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    But who are these enemy forces that CCN battles against?

    • Satan – Every army has a general that leads the troops and “that ancient serpent” has been leading men astray since the Garden of Eden. (Genesis 3, Revelation 12:9)
    • Professors – Entrusted with the task of teaching the students, most professors merely spew anti-God rhetoric from their lecterns. “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator…” (Romans 1:25).
    • False Teachers/Preachers/Christians – There is no shortage of wolves on the college campus, seeking to distort the Word of God and deceive many. “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15).
    • Atheists/Agnostics – There are many that claim there is no God or say we can’t know if there is a God. “For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:21-22).
    • Other Religions – The sheer amount of non-Christian religious groups on each campus is astounding… and they’re all leading students away from the truth! “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me’” (John 14:6).
    • School Shooters – Gun-free zones (typical for many colleges) are nothing more than a shiny, red bullseye in the eyes of these demented individuals. “He sits in ambush in the villages; in hiding places he murders the innocent. His eyes stealthily watch for the helpless” (Psalm 10:8).

    Now that we know about the enemies, we need to ask ourselves, who are CCN Campus Leaders fighting for?

    • Jesus Christ – The General over CCN Missionaries and other born-again Christians that “fight the good fight of the faith” (1 Timothy 6:12).
    • Professors
    • False Teachers/Preachers/Christians
    • Atheists/Agnostics
    • Other Religions
    • School Shooters

    The only difference in these lists is the General. While CCN may fight a spiritual battle against these people, the Campus Leaders still love them. They love those on the college campus enough to share the truth of Jesus Christ with them, warning as many as possible about the wrath of God, which “is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men” (Romans 1:18).

    After all, the Gospel “is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). God can change the most vile and wicked of hearts into a heart filled with love and compassion for others. In Ezekiel 36:26, God says, “I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.”

    Christian Collegian Network trains their Campus Leaders on how to share the Gospel biblically and compassionately, without watering down the truth. They have learned how to defend the truth of God’s Word against any and all attacks. These faithful men and women are on college campuses every week, not just sharing the Gospel all over America, but also preparing other Christians for this war through solid Bible teaching.

    “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Go your way; behold, I am sending you out as lambs in the midst of wolves” (Luke 10:2-3).
