Rescuing Students from Sin and Darkness with the Light of Jesus Christ. The teenage years are a time of decisions. "What will I do with my life?” “What do I believe?” Many are even asking, “Is life even worth living?” Guided only by culture’s shifting standards, students are left to build their lives on sinking sand. Without God’s truth to guide them, students are tossed about and driven toward deadly decisions. Atheism is on the rise. Alternate lifestyles are on the rise. Addictions and suicide are skyrocketing.

In all this, millions of students have never even heard the good news of Jesus Christ, who alone can set them free. We believe no one should be left unreached during the most spiritually formative years of their life. But how will they hear?

That is why we exist. Our mission is to proclaim the gospel to the next generation...till every student has heard.

Proclaiming the Gospel to the Next Generation…till every student has heard. We are training Student Leaders to take the gospel into their public schools by personally witnessing for Christ, leading weekly Bible studies, hosting campus-wide outreaches and following up with all who respond. Students in turn are learning to build their lives on the Rock of Christ and His Word. Ultimately, we are praying God will bring a student-led, church-supported campus awakening to the love of Christ at every public school.

We are also bringing the gospel to the next generation where they are – online and on social media. Students are being bombarded with every evil influence imaginable through their phones. We believe it is vital that we shine the light of Christ in this space as well as on campus as we seek to take every thought captive and proclaim to every student the joy and peace found only in Jesus Christ.

In it all, we partner with pastors who want to see a fresh movement of dynamic youth evangelism in their church and throughout their region.

Expanding the Mission and Advancing the Gospel: In 2019, we launched our Meant for More campaign with a goal of giving 1 million students the chance to hear the gospel in 12 major cities around the nation. Today, by God’s grace we have field leaders on the ground in 12 cities partnering with churches and mobilizing students for dynamic campus outreach. We are piloting a program to mobilize and equip student leaders online. All total, we are training students in 17 states today who are bringing the gospel to their public schools. We believe this is just the beginning. We pray that the Lord will continue expanding this mission - coast to coast, border to border and beyond - till every student has heard.

The Time is Now. With all the devil’s forces out to destroy our youth, we must do all we can to save them. As the world grows darker, we want to shine the light of Christ brighter than ever. And as Christian young people face cultural pressures like never before, we are more committed than ever to strengthening a remnant of young leaders who are ready to stand for Christ no matter the cost because He is worth it.

Come, join us as together we proclaim the gospel to the next generation…till every student has heard.
