  • 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.

    Evening sessions were packed with quality evangelism training taught by a diverse group of instructors ranging from one CCN Bible study student, Campus Leaders from different campuses, and local pastors.

    During the day participants were then provided the opportunity to put into practice all they had learned in the classroom by engaging students at several college campuses.

    Here are some of the highlights from this year's Campus Mission Tour:

    CCN's annual Campus Mission Tour began promptly at 6:00 PM at Second Baptist Church in Pottstown PA. The reception area where participants checked in for CMT contained literature and information regarding the upcoming week's events.

    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!

    CCN would like to thank Second Baptist Church in Pottstown for graciously allowing us the use of their facility to host this year's CMT event. We would also like to recognize all of the guest speakers and CMT participants who generously gave of their time and of themselves to fulfilling the Great Commission. 

     

    And finally, a special thanks to our CCN partners. Because of your faithful support CCN is able to continue spreading the gospel and impacting our local college campuses for Christ's kingdom! 

     

    May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you!

  • Happy New Year

    This past year was a strange year.  We are not having issues sharing the gospel on the college campuses but if we invite people to Bible Study even if it is off the campus we are having troubles on more than one campus.  This is an odd twist on things.  Please pray for favor on all of our campuses that we can share the gospel and invite people to Bible Study.  The reason the campuses state is different on each campus but the result is the same.

    The holidays bring many events that gather people we can share the gospel with.  There are often people hanging out downtown due to the holidays.  Here is Ryan and his group that went out and shared the Biggest Question DVD.

    Our Campus Leaders are often asked to teach people how to go and share the gospel. Andre and Cliff took 6 weeks to train up a large group from a church, on how to share the gospel and defend the Christian faith. Here you can see the group just before they go out to share the gospel.

    Our Campus Leaders enjoy going to other campuses to share the gospel.  Jen went to Penn State this month and was able to handout thousands of Christmas tracts and start gospel conversations with people.


    Please continue to pray for CCN and its leaders.
