WHITTIER, CA — On Aug 5, the National School Project (NSP), a Christian Non-Profit Organization passionate about student-to-student evangelism on public school campuses, began a historic campaign to reach 1 million students with the gospel in the next 1,000 days.
During Meant for More, students will sign up to lead Meant for More Weeks at their schools in March of 2020. Students will host outreach events throughout the month and spread the message that all students on their campuses are meant for more than this world has to offer—they’re meant to know God.
“We’re so excited to already have students from 105+ different campuses signed up to lead Meant for More Weeks at their schools this year, and praying in faith to see over 150 schools in at least 8 metropolitan areas get on board by the time March 2020 rolls around,” said Mark Hopson, president of NSP. “We can’t wait to see these courageous students tell the 250,000 students at their schools that they are meant for more.”
To accomplish these goals, NSP is excited to partner with ministries like FCA, CRU, and local churches to see more students come to know the Lord. NSP has also decided for the first time ever to “package” their outreach training and materials in such a way that any student, anywhere in the USA, can learn how to lead outreach on their own and be equipped to recruit the parental, pastoral, and administrative approval they need to do outreach well.
“Of the hundreds of outreaches we’ve seen, the most powerful are the ones that have strong community support. Community support isn’t a fluffy idea that just sounds nice—it’s a real, tangible partnership that allows people to do something bigger than what any one person or one group could do on their own,” said Lisa Cohen, NSP Training Director.
