Upward Challenge - Border Breaker - 2018

2018 07 borderbreaker 1200x800

Upward Challenge is a week-long event that focuses on

  • introducing participants to the person of the Holy Spirit,
  • encourages them to seek a deeper walk with Jesus Christ, and
  • nurtures a growing relationship with God the Father.

This camp is called "Border Breaker...not ashamed to spread the Gospel"

Do people really need to hear about Jesus? Border Breaker explores how the Holy Spirit can guide us to the right people, at the right time, with the right words. 

Border Breaker explores how the Holy Spirit can guide us to the right people, at the right time, with the right words. Discover how we can...

  • Join in with the work God is doing by listening to people and to the Holy Spirit.
  • Break through the fear barrier about evangelism.
  • Reach across social and spiritual borders for the sake of the Gospel.

Jesus was a man on a mission - God's search-and-rescue mission. He's commissioned us to continue the search, letting no barrier or border block other people from receiving his offer of life. It's time to get equipped.

Please put this on your calendars and invite your friends.

What does the week look like

During the week, you will participate in interactive teaching sessions, small group discussions, personal solo times, one-on-one prayer ministry, powerful times of worship, group games, a challenging field trip, and times of wonderful fellowship and service.

None. Yes, that's right, we don't require you to pay a dime to be part of this amazing event!

Instead, we invite you to make a donation towards costs as we take up an offering at the event (eg: about $150 would cover it, but the exact amount is up to you. Go pray about it!).

After expenses, whatever is in excess will be used to thank the leadership volunteers and lay a financial foundation for future Upward Challenge events.
