Challenge provides groups the opportunity to build their own unique experience. Groups can choose from several options how they want to spend their afternoons.

Afternoon Options

Groups can sign up for opportunities to minister through service and prayer in the afternoons. Prayer outreach is intercessory and evangelism based outreach utilizing prayer stations and prayer walking. Training is provided. Service projects mobilize groups to serve with their hands, muscles, and servant hearts. Projects include restoring parks and playgrounds, working with homeless shelters, partnering with other city organizations, and coming alongside of local churches as an extension into their communities. Pre-registration is required.

Take learning to a new level with a variety of labs that provide students with practical skills for the other 51 weeks of the year.

During scheduled rec times (afternoon and evenings), we offer open play in a variety of games. Students are welcome to come and go as they please.

In the afternoon on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, we host organized tournaments. Sign-up for daily tournaments will happen each day when students arrive at the recreation area. (Some of these games will also be available during evening open play.) In past years, we have offered tournaments in volleyball, ultimate frisbee, soccer, kickball, basketball, Mario Smash Brothers, and Mario Kart.

Stay tuned for Challenge 2022 recreation options!

God is boldly moving throughout the whole earth to bring people of every tribe, language and nation to Himself (Revelation 7:9). Apex Experience is a 60-minute, hands-on experience that will engage students with what God is doing around the world.

At Challenge 2022, this experience will focus on Japan and will be available Monday through Thursday.

Pre-registration is required. Details how to register will be shared Winter 2021/2022.

Feel free to take an afternoon to pull your group away for some intentional time together by enjoying area attractions. Go to www.visitKC.com for more visitors’ info.

Prayer moves

Prayer Moves is an optional, organized prayer and worship time before each evening Gathering. Students will seek the face of God alongside hundreds of other students.
