  • Fruitful Month of Ministry

    July was another fruitful month for CCN in fulfilling the biblical mandate to preach the gospel to every creature.  The Lord has been gracious to us in providing many opportunities for the advancement of His kingdom!

    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!

  • 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.
