At CA we believe that one of the reasons why we Christians remain on this earth is to share the Gospel with the unsaved around us.
-Many Christian students feel they lack the confidence, feel they cannot deal with the rejection or simply just do not know what to do.
-At CA we want to give you the skills you require to go out there and share your faith confidently without fear or shame.
-Romans 10:14 – 15
-How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?
-And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”.
