    A strange little holiday is coming up, and if you haven’t celebrated it before, should you and how would you?

    World Challenge’s partners are working with Nicaraguan coffee farms to bring them hope for a new future as well as a new church.

    God promised that, where two or three are gathered together in his name, his Spirit would be with us. We would love to gather together with you.

    From World Challenge’s very beginning, many of you saw us as a part of your church community. You partnered with us through giving and following the sermons, but we wanted to reach out to you in a more personal way. That’s how our Constituent Care department was created.
