  • Campus Mission Tour 2019

    In March Christian Collegian Network (CCN) kicked off its annual Spring Break Official Campus Mission Tour (CMT) in Pottstown, PA!

    Led by Campus Leader Andre Goff the CCN Official Campus Mission Tour was a huge success. Promoted as "a highly strategic mission trip designed to bring Christians and Christian college students to various campuses" those who participated in this year's CMT were able to reach many students through the use of Biblical evangelism.  

    Throughout this week long event CCN leaders provided training to Christian laborers on how to share the gospel and reach the unsaved for Christ.

    At Penn State CMT participants handed out tracts and had many one-on-one conversations with students. They also publicly read from the Scriptures on campus. CCN was especially excited about Brittany, a CMT participant, for her first time witnessing! Way to go Brittany!

    It has been reported that here was the worst Opioid issue in the country. Used syringes could be found scattered everywhere on the ground. Thankfully many residents were able to hear the the gospel that day. Most of them took gospel tracts from CMT laborers while one woman literally threw out her drugs upon hearing the gospel from Campus Leader Cliff Fulwood! Praise God!

  • November Praise Report

    CCN exists to train up its students to go out and share the gospel.  This month one of the Pitt students shared the gospel with another Pitt student.   The new college student at Pitt joined us at Bible Study.  He was headed home for Thanksgiving later that day and could not wait to ask his Grandmother for a Bible.  Jen asked him if he wanted one and he did and so Jen gave him a Bible.  He was so excited about joining us for Bible Study that we are going to have Bible Study the week of finals.  Pray that he reads his Bible the entire way home to Philadelphia.

    Jen finished teaching through John Frames book "Apologetics to the Glory of God."  We learned all about Presuppositional Apologetics.   The students now know how to show others that Christianity true because it resembles reality.  We learned about many different ways to show that the God of the Bible and specifically Chrisitan God is the only logical God.  The students discovered that you cannot have logic or morality outside of the Christian Worldview.  It was powerful to show the students that all other world views do not have legs to stand on.

    The NYC Campuses ministered at an abortion clinic in their area.  Here is a picture of Diane pleading with those that are going inside.

     

    The MCCC Campus went out proclaiming repentance and faith in Jesus Christ in Pottstown this month as they always do.  Here is Andre preaching the good news to people waiting at the local bus stop.

    Tim at Tidewater Community College had many great conversations on his campus about the Gospel.  

     

    Some of Tim's students came out and shared the gospel several times this month.  They helped hand out Evolution vs God DVD's as well and hand out tracts on other days.  It is so exciting to see the students going out and sharing their faith.

    We  handed out tracts at the Christmas Parade in downtown Pittsburgh.  We handed out Christmas Postcards at this parade.  The Christmas postcards were very easy to handout.  We handed out the same tract last year.  People were very excited to recieve the tract.

    Each week we are able to speak to many students about the gospel on the campuses.    This month Jen had several second conversations with people.  A young man named Ben who is a Buddhist came up to talk with Jen a second time.  Jen had talked to him about a month ago and then this past week he walked right up to Jen so they could talk some more.  It was a great second conversation.  They talked about the fact that if it was natural for people to die then why was it so upsetting that they died.  Jen explained to him that we were wired to live forever and not meant to die.  We were made in God's image.  He really understood and said that resinated with him.  Pray for Ben.

     

    Bible Study is going great in Cincinnati.  We are so excited to have Ryan teaching there.  He does www.witnesstalkradio.org during his outreaches.  It is great to be able to hear many of the conversations that he has witnessing with students. 

     

    Thank you so much for your support!
