CCN @ MSU - Why and How is it different?

What makes CHANGE Collegian Network (CCN) different from other Christian ministries at MSU?
The Lord has blessed MSU with more than one on-campus ministry. Let the Lord lead you to which ministry you should commit to.
What makes CCN different from the other ministries?
Apologetics - n. (used with a sing. verb)
1. The branch of theology that is concerned with defending or proving the truth of Christian doctrines. 2. Formal argumentation in defense of something, such as a position or system.
CCN focuses heavily on rooting and grounding Christians in their faith, strengthening their Christian theology (study of God), and preparing them to"be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" (1 Peter 3:15) through the use of apologetics.
In CCN meetings, we not only learn about our own faith, but we also learn about other faiths: how they are similar and how they differ. We learn how to share our faith with others intelligently and compassionately. Whether we are refuting evolution or relativism, the goal is always to bring others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ through the preaching of His gospel (Mark 16:15).
Then, we all go out as a group and we put what we learn into action!

Along with Bible study and apologetics, we also enjoy group worship, prayer, special events, on and off campus fellowship.
Come out and join us as we endeavor to fulfill Mark 16:15 on campus!
Main Meetings (Worship/Word/Apologetics): Tuesdays 2:30pm – 4:30pm
Prayer and Devotional Bible Studies: Thursdays 9:30am – 11:15am
Location: SC 415 (Student Center)

See you at the family gathering!

7 Reasons to Join CCN...

Why should you join CCN @ MSU?
Here are 7 of the many reasons you should join CHANGE Collegian Network at Montclair State University in SC 415 on Tuesdays @ 2:30PM - 4:30PM for our main meetings [worship, Bible study, apologetics, or evangelistic outreaches] and Thursdays @ 9:30AM - 11:15AM for our prayer and devotional Bible studies!

Strengthen or Develop a Close Relationship with Jesus Christ
Our weekly meetings will not only include awesome worship and group prayer, but we will be digging into the Word of God, teaching the glorious depth of the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith. Whether you are a Christian who regularly performs exegetical studies of the Word of God, a new believer, or a seeker, you will enjoy diving into foundational theology with us!
Cultivate Your Faith Among Other Believers Who Will Challenge You to Grow Closer to Christ
Iron sharpens iron! As family in the faith, we encourage others to diligently seek the Lord, constantly renewing our minds in Christ. On a campus that is filled with temptation, our
relationship with one another is more than just acquaintances. We are here to encourage one another while it is still today, and be conformed to the image of Christ while esteeming our brethren higher than ourselves!
Learn How to Lovingly and Effectively Share Your Faith with Everyone from Atheists to Individuals of Other Religious Backgrounds
Want to share the gospel with others but don't know what to say? Is your faith wavering because of strange philosophies taught in class that is contrary to your faith? Our fellowships include apologetics. What is that? Apologetics - n. (used with a sing. verb) The branch of theology that is concerned with defending or proving the truth of Christian doctrines.
Put What You Learn into Immediate Practice with the Help of the Team
We don't only teach how to share your faith, we also go out and share our faith on campus together. Get "hands-on" training in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ with people of various beliefs and worldviews in a group setting. We are here to walk alongside you! So, if you are looking for a challenge to grow, this is the place!

Become Part of a Team and Help Bring AMAZING Life-Changing Events to the Campus
Our goal is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone on campus. One of the ways are sharing the good news is through creative mediums and special guest speaker events. Come join our team and help plan these eternally beneficial campus events, including a Christian rap concert in the Quad, a special speaker advocating for persecuted Christians around the world, and our educational First Amendment Rights event! We are looking for Christians who are willing to contribute to the phenomenal CHANGE that is about to occur on the MSU campus through Christ!
Become Part of a Family and Take Part in Eternally Beneficial Off-Campus Events
Once a month, campuses with CCN fellowships get together to experience "CCN Saturday", a day separated to the Lord for fasting, praying, worship, Word, one to one evangelism and open-air preaching in New York City and other cities in New Jersey. Come and labor alongside other Christians, who have a heart to serve the Lord! We also have other off-campus activities, such as conferences on issues concerning the faith.
Bring Your Creative Ideas to the Table and Help the Campus Learn about Christ
As a CCN member, your ideas for bringing the gospel to the campus can help build and drive the team. Every member is important and needed to fulfill Christ's prayer for laborers. What a fulfilling role it is to help drive the ministry forward as we are led of the Lord to bring this eternal message of hope to the students of MSU! CCN members are an intricate part of an amazing vision and its fulfillment! Be the answer to Christ's prayer for laborers!

Be part of something greater than ourselves! Be part of what CHRIST is doing on campus!
