Outreach FAQ

How many days is Challenge providing outreach opportunities?
Challenge is providing outreach opportunities for four afternoons: Tuesday – Friday, July 14-17.
What types of outreach opportunities are offered?

We offer service and prayer opportunities throughout Kansas City. 

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.

Could my group choose to do outreach each afternoon of the conference?

Groups are limited to two 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. 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 fill out this form (coming soon!). We can make adjustments through June 6, 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, Challenge and our outreach partners will provide all needed equipment. Instructions regarding how to dress for service projects will be sent in late June 2020 to those who have registered for service.

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 outreach, your group will go to the dining hall to pack a sack lunch then bring it to the outreach launch area to eat.

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.

If I have a question regarding ministry, who should I contact?

Please email challengeministry@gmail.com if you have questions.
