The 180 Challenge


The 180 Challenge

The 180 Challenge is the process that we challenge all students to take on as they progress through the student ministry. Each phase of the process is intended to strengthen their walk with God and increase the amount of impact they have on the mission field that God has them in. Below you can see how each of the events and trips we offer as a student ministry provide an opportunity for students to become the leaders that God intends for them to be.
