Christian Challenge

I am serving as a Collegiate/University Missionary within an organization called Christian Challenge at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS). The journey to this day began back in February 2013 when God first put ministry on my heart. While in college, I found myself in a place where Christ had a position of minor priority in my life. Little did I know, that an invitation to an on-campus ministry would be the course God would use to pull me to Him and challenge me to ask myself, “what does a life fully surrendered to Christ actually look like?” I eventually asked myself that very question and my heart was changed that day by the overwhelming grace of God. God began an amazing work in me at that point, and so began a journey that I hope will reach far beyond my own relationship with Christ and into the lives of others who find themselves on similar paths. The truth and love of God that was shown to me through this ministry is the reason I know Christ as my savior today. My hope is to evoke in other students the same desire to spread the Gospel message on our campus and to reach others who do not have a relationship with Christ.
