What Church Leaders are Saying​

“In an era where people are struggling with discipleship, diving into the words of Jesus is one of the best things you can do. I love how Red Letter Challenge makes it easy to get an entire church diving deeper into the teachings of Christ.”

Carey Nieuwhof

Founding Pastor of Connexus Church, Author and Speaker

“Leading churches are using campaigns to increase engagement in their community. Red Letter Challenge is not only a plug and play campaign to help your church gain a better insight into the teaching of Jesus but it will also help your church grow because of deeper engagement!”
