During this past school year (2016-2017) First Priority trained and equipped 90 students as Campus Missionaries. Those 90 Student Leaders shared the gospel with more than 1800 students and saw 244 of them respond to the gospel. That means that each Student Missionary that was trained shared the gospel with approximately 20 students and saw 3 of them respond to the message of Hope in Christ.
During the 2017-2018 school year, First Priority Blue Ridge expects to train and equip more than 100 students as First Priority Campus Missionaries in our area schools. This means we expect to see students sharing the gospel with more than 2000 of their peers and witnessing more than 300 respond!
The cost of training, equipping and mentoring each First Priority Campus Missionary is $20 per month (or $240 per year). In other words, $20 a month invests into the eternities of 21 students…1 Campus Missionary and the 20 students they will share the gospel with during the school year. That’s less than $0.67 a day or $0.04 per student per day!
The Race To 100 is a campaign to find individuals, businesses and churches who will adopt a Campus Missionary and sponsor them for $20 per month.
