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.
