Our Ministries

Bible Quizzing

Bible Quizzing is a fun, intense and exciting tool for young people to memorize and be discipled while providing competition at a local, regional, and national level.

Camp Machasay

Camp Machasay is a ministry of Youth Challenge. We strive to use this God given camp as a tool to fulfill our mission of “Building the Truth of God’s Word into the lives of America’s Youth”.

Jamaica Ministry

Youth Challenge facilitates Bible quizzing in the public schools in and around Montego Bay. We do this by bringing groups of students and adults from the United States to help train table officials and coaches, disciple quizzers, and facilitate their national tournament. Learn more about these trips here!

Outdoor Adventures

With the explosion of the digital world young people are no longer spending time in creation or with "what has been made." So God's attributes that should be "clearly seen" are quickly being dimmed.

Prison Ministries

In the Sterling Correctional Facility in Sterling, CO, we are fortunate to be able to do ministry. Dean Patterson is a chaplain in the prison there doing several men’s studies a week.
