Outreach Event Ideas, Sharing Events

The Ultimate Challenge

The idea is to set up many challenges for teens to participate in (a climbing or scaling wall, dunk tank, obstacle course, radar gun baseball throw, sumo wrestling, four-way volleyball, etc.) and then have a gospel presentation geared towards teens and give them “The Ultimate Challenge.” My husband and I started this three years ago as an outreach program for the area.

The first year we had 50 teens, the second year we had 65 teens and 1 salvation, and this past year we had 70 teens and 5 salvations.
