College Ministry

Christian Challenge

Christian Challenge is a college ministry for students at Chico State and Butte College that wants to help people connect with an authentic group of friends, explore what it means to take the next step in their relationship with Jesus, and together find practical ways to change our world. Challenge hopes to create an environment where students feels welcome to make new friends and explore spiritual things. They do this through worship and teaching, small group Bible studies, fun events, one-on-one discipleship, community service projects, retreats, conferences, and mission trips. Their mission statement is “To Love God, love people and to develop multiplying disciples to reach the nations.”
