CCN - Year End Newsletter 2007



Dear Friends,

I am so thankful to each of your prayers and support this past year of ministry. It's been a journey of miracles each day as we have all witnessed together what the Holy Spirit has done so powerfully through this ministry.

I'm writing to each of you with a year end letter to report the amazing works that the Lord has done through Campus Church Networks. I pray that you will rejoice in the fruit that has been born in the praise reports below of what God is doing as we pursue this vision to see every campus, every city and every nation transformed with the glory of God. I also ask that you would prayerfully consider how to continue supporting CCN through your continual prayers and financial giving. This ministry is supported through partners and friends who are co-working together with us as we go out to fulfill the Great Commission through equipping student leaders.

Praise God for what He has done in 2007 through your support. I am hopeful and with full assurance that God is going to do an even greater work in the coming days of 2008!

CCN 2007 Highlights


* CCN Staff Expansion: Campus Church Netwmorks' staff has grown in the past year from a one-man operation to a four man full-time staff that now includes an admin / operations director (Benson Lee), strategy coordinator (Peter Gent) and a church planting director (Sam Lee). We're thankful to come alongside with so many different ministries this year in prayer, evangelism and simple church planting.

* We now have coordinators overseeing church planting efforts in the following regions: Los Angeles , San Diego, Davis / Sacramento, Berkeley, NJ/NY, Boston, MA, Midwest, Southeast. Internationally, we have teams in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia and China. This is a big difference from the one-man coaching situation before!

* Equipped and trained 20,000+ students in US, Canada, HK, Taiwan, and Malaysia. A quick snapshot of some of these ministry meetings: "During the response time, more students committed to adopt un-reached pockets of students on campus by planting a simple church among them. The entire crowd once again began to cry out to be filled with the power of the Spirit, then the Holy Spirit began to give words of knowledge of people and their sicknesses, one by one, people rose their hand confirming they needed a prayer of healing. We had students lay hands on those around them who were sick or oppressed, immediately all over the place students were instantly healed, some were not healed, but many were, what was most encouraging was that the students stepped out in faith, in obedience to Jesus (Luke 10:9, Mark 16:15-18) to heal the sick."

* Released the book, "The Blueprint: A Revolutionary Plan To Plant Missional Communities On Campus" equipping students in prayer, power evangelism, and simple church planting. We've given away and sold thousands of copies in English and Chinese. We've seen a significant increase of interest from highly motivated students and leaders interested in the above topics and continue to hear back stories of how God is using the book. God's hand is surely upon this book!

* Supernatural on Campus Conference: this past November, we believe history was made as we launched our third nationwide conference at UCLA focusing on the the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit. We saw 400+ student leaders from every major region of the nation who gathered hungry for God and released a nationwide vision to restore the Person and Work of the Holy Spirit upon the college campuses of our nation once again. Many supernatural miracles took place at the conference, a blind person healed and multiple students being baptized immediately in water. This is just the beginning of a new spiritual revolution!

* 3,500 Student Missionaries have committed to 2 years of mission in East Asia Back to Jerusalem: We have been championing the vision of 10,000 student missionaries to make 10 million new disciples in East Asia and bring the Gospel back to Jerusalem in the next 10 years. Our faith goal has been to believe God for 1,000 new student leaders to commit as missionaries each year for the next 10 years to this vision. So far, God has superseded this faith goal with over 3,500 student missionaries committing in the last 3 years! Keep praying for the Student Back to Jerusalem movement!

CCN 2008 Expansion and Beyond



* Partner Network: As our ministry grows, one of our big objectives is developing a "Partner Network." You and many other "tribes" in the kingdom have reaped the benefits of CCN coming in and partnering with what God was doing in your midst. We're recognizing that we need regular prayer and financial partners to continue and pastor the growth that we've seen.

To that end, we are going to start emailing monthly updates of what God has been doing, how you can pray for us, and initiatives you can give to. You can start receiving partner updates by signing up on the front page of http://campuschurch.net.

* A new website: we regularly receive about three hundred hits between jaesonma.com and campuschurch.net, and about five solid inquiries a week from interested students and leaders wanting training, help, or advice. We believe there is initial training and preparation that we can do from a web platform, but we will need to invest in new technologies and a new website to do it.

* Blueprint Regional Trainings: one of the most exciting developments from release of "The Blueprint" is that students are asking for more training on prayer, power evangelism and simple church planting. Different regions are emerging as hotspots where multiple students or leaders have contacted asking for training and equipping on those three main topics. From these trainings, we hope to release students into the harvest equipped and on a longer term, identify additional Regional Coordinators who will catalyze and cultivate campus church planting movements.

* Church planting: Regional Coordinators are crucial to our goal of raising up disciples that will plant churches that plant churches that will plant churches. They provide the role of discipleship, guidance, and training to student missionaries in their specific region. Our goal is to raise up infrastructure to support and resource ten regional coordinators in the next year.

* Antioch Forerunner Foundation:
We are in the development of a student missionary training school that we hope to launch in the summer of 2008 for six weeks with IHOP (International House of Prayer). This mission school is a intensive cross cultural missionary training program to equip & prepare student missionaries to be church planters on their immediate college campuses and eventually overseas in East Asia back to Jerusalem.

Dear Pastor Jaeson,
I am proud of you. I am praying for wisdom from above to tackle the mountain of decisions. I pray God gives you a way to rest this year, and yet your entire movement will increase carried on the shoulders of those you raised up. You are amazing. I am praying that you can take His hand and step by step walk on water through your transition. You are amazing. God is going to honor your heart.
