Sign Petition to Preserve Our Freedom in...

Petition to Preserve Our Freedom in America

Support Academic Freedom

[Taken from]

Across America, the freedom of scientists, teachers, and students to question Darwin is coming under increasing attack by self-appointed defenders of the theory of evolution who are waging a malicious campaign to demonize and blacklist anyone who disagrees with them.

You can help by signing the Academic Freedom Petition and stand up for free speech and free scientific inquiry.

"We, the undersigned American citizens, urge the adoption of policies by our nation's academic institutions to ensure teacher and student academic freedom to discuss the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian evolution. Teachers should be protected from being fired, harassed, intimidated, or discriminated against for objectively presenting the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian theory. Students should be protected from being harassed, intimidated, or discriminated against for expressing their views about the scientific strengths and weaknesses of Darwinian theory in an appropriate manner."

If you agree with this statement please fill in the information on the website of the link below and join other Americans in supporting academic freedom. Petitions will be delivered to appropriate state and federal education officials and departments.
Please copy and paste this in an email and pass it on!

Praying for the Persecuted Church/CCN Saturday is coming...

Recap: Our CCN Group Trip to The Voice of the Martyrs Conference
This past Saturday, we shared a humbling and sobering group trip The Voice of the Martyrs (VOM) conference. VOM is a ministry that provides aid to persecuted Christians around the world. There are many countries where Christians must worship in secret because of the intense physical persecution that takes place from both the citizens and the government. Learn more about VOM and the persecuted church.
CCN has helped promote the VOM mission on our college campuses throughout the United States. Learn more here. It has been a pleasure to join with a ministry that helps Christians around the world to fulfill the Great Commission (Mark 16:15) even in the face of harsh punishment. We learned so much from these bold and faithful brothers and sisters...
In America, we have the right to both religion and speech. Therefore, we are able to boldly share our faith without the fear of punishment from the government. This makes our call to witness proactively that much more important. "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required" (Luke 2:48).
We can simply go up to a complete stranger, hand that person a gospel tract and share the gospel with him/her. We can also grab a crate, stand on it, and preach the gospel on the sidewalk to pedestrians... and this will be our first amendment right to do so! So, why wait to share the gospel with the perishing when others do not have the same freedoms that we have?
At the conference, we worshipped together. Not once did I fear the police coming to arrest and beat us. Yet, in many countries, our brethren face police brutality and loose everything for simply worshipping the Lord Jesus Christ.

Throughout the world right now, our brethren are facing persecution from the government and from others who live among them. They must meet in secret and baptize in secret, because they are "persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed" (2 Cor. 4:9). What do they ask from us? To pray for them. What does Jesus ask of us as well? "Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).

We were so privileged to meet brethren from other countries, who experienced the pain of persecution. It was a blessing to hear their stories, to encourage them, and fellowship. Now we must take up our own cross where we are and make sure that we preach the gospel to all those in our sphere of influence, especially in the light of the freedom that we have in America.

One of the most humbling truths that we learned at the conference was that many of our persecuted brothers and sisters forgive and pray for those who persecuted them. It made us all reflect on the condition of our heart.
The last speaker challenged us with a message called "Normal Christianity". He shared that the persecuted brethren look like those in the Bible and are actual normal Christians. We ought to not settle for a lukewarm, comfortable life where we just share the gospel at our own convenience. According to the Bible, that is not a normal Christian life.
The speaker shared that many look at the persecuted brethren as "super Christians". He said that they are not. They are simply obedient. Then, he posed this question: "Since when does obedience make you special?"
We ought to all be obedient to Christ's command to live a life that makes sense in the light of eternity. Therefore, obey Christ and proactively fulfill the commission: "Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" Mark 16:15.
After the conference, we put our faith into action and preached the gospel at a local movie theater that was packed! Many were very receptive and gathered around to hear the gospel. With our amazing freedom in America, we ought to take every advantage to share the gospel with others!
We also were able to see Fireproof, an amazing tear-jerking and biblical movie with a clear gospel presentation. We highly recommend that you see this movie! You will not be disappointed.

We truly enjoyed the conference and learning about our family all over the world. Please pray for them as they serve the Lord in great faith and obedience.
We also pray that you will join us for our next Saturday event in the New York/New Jersey area, which is...

Come and exercise your First Amendment Rights and join CCN students for a day of prayer, worship, Word, one-to-one street evangelism and open-air preaching in Newark, NJ!
Watch a video and learn more about CCN Saturday, our monthly group street outreach in the NY/NJ area.

Date/Time: Saturday, October 11th (10AM - 5PM, including dinner fellowship)
Meeting Location: Montclair State University (Room TBA)

See you there and we look forward to fulfilling the Great Commission with you in our FREE country of America.

Prominent House Church leader Released from Prison

UPDATE: On August 29, prominent house church leader, Pastor Zhang Mingxuan, affectionately known as "Pastor Bike", his wife and a co-worker were released from Chinese custody. All three believers are in good health and spirits and praising God for their release, according to China Aid Association. The detainees also said during their confinement they had opportunities to witness to guards and even high-ranking government officials.

Pastor Bike was arrested along with his wife and co-worker on August 6, two days before the Olympic Games began in Beijing. Pastor Bike, an outspoken evangelist, has travelled, on his bike, to many places in China, handing out Christian literature and Bibles and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Voice of the Martyrs and China Aid Association launched an international petition drive advocating for Pastor Bike, his wife and co-worker to be released. To date more than 58,000 people have signed the petition. The petition has been delivered to the Chinese Ambassador, Zhou Wenzhong, in Washington D.C.

VOM praises God for their release and encourages you to continue to pray for them and other believers in China. Ask God to protect believers who constantly face harsh persecution form the government.

We're Back from Repent and Witness Evangelism Camp!

The CHANGE Collegian Network missions trip to New York City was phenomenal! The gospel was preached on the subways, Penn Station, Battery Park, Times Square, and Union Square Park. This 4-day event was packed with prayer, worship, Word, fasting, witnessing, open-air preaching, and godly fellowship. There were praise reports of people coming to repentance, marriages being strengthened, and Christians being stretched out of their comfort zone to minister to people from all different walks of life through one-to-one witnessing and open-air preaching!

"I am forever changed by this experience. I went to a boot camp last year in NYC, but this was on a different level. I have a hunger and passion for open air preaching that I never had before. I have been freshly kindled by the Spirit of God and I have a deeper burden to see God glorified through evangelism than ever before. I have never in my life experienced such deep God honoring fellowship before. I have a deep love for the Repent and Witness crew."

- Mitch S.

Many people open-air preached for the first time at camp. Check out these quick clips below taken by one of the attendees.
New Additional Video!
Check out this new video edited by our Campus Leader @ Citrus College in California.
Join RW missionaries as they share with your their first open-air preach experience and let them encourage you!

More videos to come as they become available.

"Coming to Repent and Witness evangelism camp helped rekindle the fire in me for the lost and also took me out of my comfort zone and helped me realize that I am dead to myself and alive in Christ. It was a blessing being around others who loved God passionately and reminded me that I am not alone in my walk with Christ."

- Siquina A.

An Encouraging Email from a Campus Leader!

Check out this encouraging email from our Campus Leader at Midland Lutheran College in Fremont, Nebraska!
Keep pushing that plow, saints! Don't look back!

"Wanted to give you and everyone at CCN some encouragement today. Last night, Ben, Tim and myself put those "This was your life" gospel tracts on the dorms. We did 2 whole dorms. When Ben and myself got back to our room after visiting a friend, we found all our tracts in front of the door with a note that said stop pushing religion on everyone. I have pictures to show you.

This tells me a few things, one: this campus is as bad as I felt and two: the enemy is scared. Though we are rejected, Christ gets all the glory. I praise God that He is shining His light at Midland and the spiritual darkness and [spiritual] enemies on campus are afraid. Praise God!"

-- Luke, Campus Leader
Midland Lutheran College

Please pray for our brother, Luke, as he continues to humbly evangelize his campus with his team in faith and love!
