The activities in this “20 Day Challenge” will help you live out the Great Commission Jesus gave us in Matthew 28:18-20. Over the span of one month, engage with five specific challenges per week.
Avoid trying to do it alone. Depending on your context, each day’s challenge presents an opportunity to lock arms with a teammate or co-worker and to trust God together. Encourage one another as you step out in faith each day.
Watch God work in your life and the lives of those around you as you take the challenge this month!
