What is CCN About?
“And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”” (Matthew 28:18-20)
At Christian Collegian Network(CCN), we are called as Christians to win the lost and disciple the found. Our leaders, sent by the church and called by the ministry, go onto our local college campuses and seek out Christians to disciple. Before we take a Campus leader on, We make sure they are a member of a local church and understand they are a member of the church to serve the body of Christ. When the students graduate from college they know they should, and are able to go back to their churches and serve in the body of Christ at their local church.
What We Do Each Week
Our leaders invite students- Christian and non-Christian- to weekly fellowships which include Bible Study, prayer, and training in Biblical doctrine, apologetics, and evangelism. They apply what they learn as we take Christian students out to share their faith. This is where the other aspect of CCN comes in; we actively seek to share our faith with lost people-professors and students- on and off college campuses through witnessing and Bible studies. As the believers grow, we train them on how to write a Bible Study, teach a Bible Study, lead outreaches. Our goal is to teach our Christian students what Jesus has taught us in His Word so that they will become the next generation of soul-winning Christian Leaders wherever their education takes them.
We have locations on various college campuses in the USA. CCN incorporates on-campus Bible study, praise, worship, apologetics, evangelism, and on/off-campus outreaches. CCN also provides retreats, Spring Break, and Summer Mission Trips, special events, and free Evangelism Crash Courses for churches, we ask the church to pay for travel expenses.
