Here at Champion, we believe the best classroom is hands-on experience. We offer a wide variety of ministries in which the students can be involved in. We believe here at Gospel Light and Champion Christian College that there is nothing more important than our Savior’s words in Matthew 28. We try to provide many tools and outlets here to help the student further the Gospel.
Below is a list of the many ministries offered at Champion:
Compassion for Children (C4C)
Here in the city of Hot Springs there are over 35,000 people. An estimated 25% of these people live in poverty. Our Compassion for Children ministry reaches specifically into the homes of these impoverished people. The unique mission of our Compassion for Children is to spread the Gospel Message into homes by providing a transportation service and activities for underprivileged youth of Hot Springs. Many of our students find this as a very rewarding ministry and have seen God change the hearts and lives of the people that He has let them be a part.
Gospel Light and Champion have the privilege to go into ten different nursing homes and minister to the elderly. This is a ministry that is always in need of more workers. It gives the student opportunities to sing, play an instrument, preach, and just to be a blessing to the residents and workers there.
Young Prophets of America (Y.P.O.A)
This unique ministry joins hands with our Compassion for Children Ministry. While our “C4C” ministry focuses on the junior age underprivileged youth, our Y.P.O.A ministry gives attention to the Hot Springs teenager. Many of these young people come from despairing situations. They are looking for a Savior! We have many students who look forward to each opportunity they get to invest what God has given them into one of these precious young adult lives!
This is a ministry specifically centered for special needs children; they are taught Bible lessons and stories repetitively on their level. We have several families in our church with a special needs child. The opportunity to serve in this area is growing, and it takes someone that God has specifically gifted in this area of helps. Are you the one?
This ministry involves working in our Wednesday Night Teen Gathering. The opportunities range from media, visual, small group aide, worship band, vocals and many more!
We have an array of musical opportunities here at Gospel Light! We believe God made us to be musical beings and that we are commanded to worship Him with song. Whether you can play an instrument or sing, Champion has a spot reserved for you!
Did you know 95% of people visit the church web-site before they visit the campus? Did you know that if a guest is not greeted with a warm smile within five minutes of his/her arrival their chances of ever visiting again dramatically decrease? Here at Gospel Light and Champion, we hold our first impression ministry in high regard. Why? We want to remove every barrier for the unchurched and de-churched. For some of our upper-classmen, Gospel Light has our First Impressions ministry available.
Matthew 28:19-20 says: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Every one of the ministries offered here at Champion, center around the Great Commission. As Champions for Christ we are striving to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our Jerusalem, Hot Springs.
