21 Day Challenge

What is the 21 Day Challenge?

The 21 Day Challenge will help you grow in your personal relationship with Christ as we focus on a specific spiritual habit every day. Each day includes a Bible passage and a simple action to apply that day. Use email, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages to share these scriptures and challenges each day.

How should I use it?

To participate in the challenge, either send your people a link to this webpage; or upload the challenge to your church’s website and use email, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to upload the images, scripture reference, and daily challenge to your church’s social media accounts.

What should I expect?

The next 21 days are going to be a great experience. The 21 Day Challenge is an opportunity to grow spiritually while reading God’s Word and following through with the daily challenge. LifeWay Research reveals that only 16 per cent of church attenders read the Bible every day. Reading the Bible and applying what you have read to your daily life is critical to your growth as a follower of Christ. The 21 Day Challenge is designed to help you become a self-feeder of the Bible.

During the Challenge, you will need a Bible, pen, and a journal of some type. Simply follow the instructions for the Challenge each day.
