Outreach FAQ

How many days is Challenge providing outreach opportunities?
Challenge is providing outreach opportunities for four afternoons: Tuesday – Friday, July 14-17.
Could my group choose to do outreach each afternoon of the conference?
Groups are limited to 2 afternoons of outreach. This is due in part to the availability of transportation, but we also want to encourage groups to participate in our equipping labs and recreation opportunities.
Can I choose one type of ministry one day and another type the next day?
Yes.
Am I guaranteed my requested ministry opportunity?
We will attempt to honor all requests, but can’t guarantee a specific day or site. Group size is a major factor in assignments. Write in the comment box anything we should take into consideration. Your flexibility is greatly appreciated!
When will I know our group assignment?
Our goal is to communicate ministry assignments before you arrive at Challenge. We are working to have initial communication with you by June 15, 2020.
Once registered, am I able to make changes?
After you register for ministry and you realize you need to make changes, please email challengeministry@gmail.com and we will make the necessary adjustments prior to June 1, 2020.
Can I register for ministry opportunities onsite?
Once onsite, options will be limited. There is no guarantee of openings. In order to honor our city sites, it is important to register prior to the conference according to our timeline.
Does Challenge provide all needed materials?
Yes, however, groups must bring the supplies we ask every group to bring as noted in the Leader Guide.
Does Challenge provide transportation to ministry locations?
Yes. We have contracted with a bus company that will take groups to ministry sites.
How will our group eat lunch on the day we do ministry?
On days you are assigned to ministry, your box lunches will be in the ministry launch area and your group will eat there.
Will students be safe on the streets of Kansas City?
We will not send groups into overtly dangerous communities. Generally speaking, if groups respect that they are in a city, stay in a group, and make it known they are present to serve/help they will be welcomed and supported by the people of the community.
