Take the 12 a Year Challenge

There are a group of us praying for a movement to start in Student Ministries across the country and we believe that in order for this to happen, the Gospel has to be central in everything we do. We need to be committed to preaching the Gospel, teaching the Gospel and relying on the Gospel for the results instead of our talents and resources.

Student Ministries and Student Pastors need to be challenged, so here it goes:
What if every church in America baptized 12 students in the next 12 months?
Just one student a month?

I'll tell you what would happen...
Churches would look different. The culture would shift towards Christ and away from the world. Families would be closer. Schools would begin to change, and the list goes on.

This really isn't about numbers, it's about people. If American Churches would take this challenge and commit to becoming more intentional in making the Gospel the center of their ministries, at only 12 students per church, we as a Country would baptize more teenagers in one year than ever before.

So, if you're a Student Pastor, a Pastor, or a Lay Person with a heart for Christ, I encourage you to take the challenge and make the main thing the main thing.
