In March Christian Collegian Network (CCN) kicked off its annual Spring Break Official Campus Mission Tour (CMT) in Pottstown, PA!
Led by Campus Leader Andre Goff the CCN Official Campus Mission Tour was a huge success. Promoted as “a highly strategic mission trip designed to bring Christians and Christian college students to various campuses” those who participated in this year’s CMT were able to reach many students through the use of Biblical evangelism.
Throughout this week-long event CCN leaders provided training to Christian laborers on how to share the gospel and reach the unsaved for Christ.
Evening sessions were packed with quality evangelism training taught by a diverse group of instructors ranging from one CCN Bible study student, Campus Leaders from different campuses, and local pastors.
During the day participants were then provided the opportunity to put into practice all they had learned in the classroom by engaging students at several college campuses.
Here are some of the highlights from this year’s Campus Mission Tour:
DAY 1 CCN’s annual Campus Mission Tour began promptly at 6:00 PM at Second Baptist Church in Pottstown PA. The reception area where participants checked in for CMT contained literature and information regarding the upcoming week’s events.
Montgomery County Community College (MC3) Campus Leader Cliff Fulwood kicks things off with the Evangelism Crash Course which equips students with a brief overview of how to witness to others.
Campus Leader Gene Henderson from the University of Pittsburgh campus in Pittsburgh, PA taught on 2 Timothy 4:5 where he exhorted students to “do the work of an evangelist”.
Pastor Charles Cedeno (far right) taught on “The Heart of an Evangelist”.
Garrett Hardy from CCN’s Montgomery County Community College (MC3) Bible Study kicked off the evening’s teaching with a lesson on “The Bible”. MC3 Campus Leaders Andre Goff and Cliff Fullwood along with CCN congratulate Garrett on a job well done!
Pastor Andrew Rappaport from Striving for Eternity Ministries taught on “Bible Reliability”.
DAY 4 – Temple University
DAY 5 – MCCC Bluebell, PA Here’s what one CMT participant had to say about their experience thus far: “…CMT has been off the chain! MCCC in Bluebell had the nicest and most receptive students of any campus we’ve been to. Truly blessed day. Sooooo many seeds planted and watered.”
CCN President Jenifer Pepling engaging in friendly discussions with students using the popular “I.Q. test”.
DAY 6 – Penn State, Berks Campus “Evangelism at Penn State U was off the charts!”
At Penn State CMT participants handed out tracts and had many one-on-one conversations with students. They also publicly read from the Scriptures on campus. CCN was especially excited about Brittany, a CMT participant, for her first time witnessing! Way to go Brittany!

Day 6 – Final day of CMT
This last day of CMT ended with an eye-opening experience for many who attended the week-long outreach. CMT participants witnessed in the town of Kensington which is located in North Philly.
It has been reported that here was the worst Opioid issue in the country. Used syringes could be found scattered everywhere on the ground. Thankfully many residents were able to hear the gospel that day. Most of them took gospel tracts from CMT laborers while one woman literally threw out her drugs upon hearing the gospel from Campus Leader Cliff Fulwood! Praise God!
CCN would like to thank Second Baptist Church in Pottstown for graciously allowing us the use of their facility to host this year’s CMT event. We would also like to recognize all of the guest speakers and CMT participants who generously gave of their time and of themselves to fulfilling the Great Commission. And finally, a special thanks to our CCN partners. Because of your faithful support CCN is able to continue spreading the gospel and impacting our local college campuses for Christ’s kingdom! May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! – Christian Collegian Network
