Story of Life Change

New Believer Leads Christian Club at School

Sam is a student at Naperville Central High School currently being coached by Decision Point to reach her campus with the gospel. It all started when Sam heard the gospel and accepted Jesus online. Since then, she connected with a local church and felt called by God to lead the Christian Club at her school—praise God for her boldness! When asked about her vision for what the Lord has for her and her school, Sam shared, “I have a dream that God will use us to share Christ with our entire school and that we would be unashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God to save.”

Chicago Ministry Update

102 Students Reaching 47 Schools
  • We are currently partnered with 24 new churches around Chicagoland!
  • 42 coaches have been trained in witnessing.
  • Christian Clubs have planned 12 witnessing outings for the year and are inviting students to attend as we speak! 
  • 19 Christian clubs launched in Chicago Schools! Due to Covid-19 and many schools being online or hybrid over the last year and a half, many clubs had to reapply for club status and get student signatures to become official. It's like launching a club for the very first time!

"Students are hungry for hope, and with over 300 high schools (public and private) in Cook County alone, there is a great opportunity!" says Jon Cox, Decision Point's Midwest Director. "Pray that God would open the door to schools, and that churches would continue to rise up and shine the light of Christ into schools!"

We are currently coaching students from the schools marked in yellow, and praying about coaching students from the ones in blue.

2021 Goals & Prayer Requests

Please join us in praying over these goals for our Illinois team this upcoming year.
  • Pray for more God to lead more people to join Decision Point as part-time and full-time staff for the Southwest Suburbs, downtown Chicago, and for new cities across the entire state.
  • Pray for each student leader currently being coached by Decision Point to reach out to their peers and classmates with the gospel this fall.
