Outreach Registration Instructions
We are excited to offer diverse ministry opportunities in Kansas City during Challenge. Please read the information and instructions on this page before registering for outreach.
How To Register
As churches register for Challenge on UltraCamp, they have the option of also registering for outreach.
If a church doesn’t register for outreach when they initially register for Challenge, they can fill out our registration change form.
- We can accommodate approximately 1,800 outreach participants per day; we have historically maxed out this availability.
- We expect churches to participate in outreach with a 10:1 student-to-leader ratio.
- June 6 is the deadline for outreach registration and requesting registration changes.
Choose Your Days
At Challenge, churches have the opportunity to customize four afternoons for the unique needs of their group. Due to the logistics, transportation needs, and community partnerships involved, groups are limited to two afternoons of outreach.
When submitting outreach registration, churches need to choose which day(s) they would like to do outreach. If they would like to do more than two afternoons of outreach, there will be a place to indicate interest in additional outreach opportunities should they become available.
There are also many great equipping labs and recreational options available in the afternoons. Please be prayerful, strategic, and realistic about how you customize your week.
Choose Your Ministry Opportunity
We are pleased to offer two different types of ministry. Descriptions for “Prayer” and “Service” are below. Most of our opportunities fall under the service description, but we are excited to offer an increased number of prayer opportunities in 2020.
Prayer outreach is intercessory and evangelism-based outreach. We utilize prayer stations and prayer walking.
- Prayer Stations: Prayer Stations provide opportunities for students to engage people in the community in non-threatening ways. Training will be provided.
- Prayer Walks: By partnering with local churches and ministries, groups will provide needed prayer support for spiritual breakthrough in a targeted community. Training will be provided.
These projects mobilize groups to serve with their hands, muscles, and servant hearts. Spread throughout the city, these projects serve the city, local ministries, and community. Projects could include restoring parks and playgrounds, working with homeless shelters, partnering with other city organizations, and coming alongside local churches as an extension into their communities.
Keeping Your Commitment
We work very hard to confirm ministry assignments with churches and share all the necessary information needed to give participants peace of mind and clear understanding. Please be present each afternoon you register for outreach! Not showing up or cancelling gives Challenge a bad name in the community and creates logistical chaos as we seek to make good on our commitment to partnering organizations.
Praying for You!
We are already praying for the groups that will be serving and praying and for our churches, ministries, and community partners in Kansas City. We are praying for ministry opportunities that might awaken students’ missional understanding and imagination to Christ’s specific call on their lives. Please be in prayer with us and for us. Thank you!
