Say "Hello" to the staff of Christian Challenge Salina! We are here because we see the value and importance of investing in college students. We are dedicated to influencing their present time in college so they will then be influential in their futures - all under the banner of Christ and advancing the Gospel.
It's our mission to partner with campuses to invest in student disciple makers through small groups and one-on-one mentorship.
It is our intent that the alumni of Christian Challenge ACT:
- Adore Christ (Desire and prioritize Jesus above all else)
- Cultivate Character (Grow more like Jesus in character and lifestyle)
- Take Action (Be equipped servant leaders in their church and world)

Today, Lorie is a nurse and Terry is full-time staff with Challenge. They enjoy hiking, cycling, as well as sharing their home with anyone from grand-babies to college students!
