More Than a Conference
Challenge is the EFCA’s biennial national gathering for students entering 7th grade through completion of 12th grade. (Exception: Students from the class of 2021 are welcome to attend Challenge 2022. See our FAQ page for more details.)
We are committed to helping you plant and water the gospel among the next generation. We want students to experience the joy of knowing Jesus and helping others do the same.
Challenge blends aspects of a conference, a mission trip and camp to create a catalytic environment that moves beyond the mountaintop moment to building missional momentum within your group.
As one youth leader explained: “The afternoon experiences help us as a group to learn together either through training, outreach or recreation. Learning side-by-side and experientially at the same time is a greenhouse atmosphere for healthy disciplemaking relationship growth.”
