Conference Overview

More Than a Conference

Challenge is a national gathering for students entering 7th grade through completion of 12th grade. It has proven to be a catalytic environment challenging students to live on mission with Jesus every day, everywhere and with everyone.

From start to finish, Challenge is about the glory of God in the face of Christ (2 Cor. 4:6). He’s the One we want students remembering and talking about when they go home.
We believe spiritual growth takes place best in the context of relationships. Therefore, we create intentional opportunities to strengthen the connections between students and leaders.
We work hard to create an intentionally integrated environment that bleeds the central message throughout each of the diverse components of Challenge in order to create a stronger learning environment.
We long to see a posture of “sentness” that moves students out toward others both locally and globally as disciples who make disciples. While at Challenge, we seek to join God in what He’s doing in the city by strengthening local partnerships that will last long after we’ve gone.
Transformation is a supernatural, God-dependent process. Therefore, prayer is not simply a tactic, it is our transformational strategy. When we pray we know God moves.
