Since 1988, USC Challenge has been striving to infuse the world with life by training students to know, love, and follow after Jesus with all their hearts. We’re on this journey together and would love for you to join us!
The best memories are made when with your closest friends.

Challenge Christmas Party
Saturday, December 10, 7pm, The Walker's Home
A great time at the end of fall semester to fellowship together, eat great food, sing a few Christmas carols, hear the Christmas story, play some games, and really remember the reason for the season.
Fall Discipleship Conference
October 20-22, 2017
Join us for a weekend away from the city in Forest Home, California to focus on growing in your walk with God and deepening relationships. The theme is Reborn Identity with speaker Brian Sturm. Cost is $150 for upperclassmen and $90 for freshmen.
We will leave USC Friday night and return Saturday night. The cost is $20 and includes transportation, lodging and food. The retreat is a great way to deepen friendships and have a ton of fun swimming (in the pool and at the beach), playing mini golf, relaxing by the pool, playing games, etc. It's a weekend you won't want to miss!
Boys will be boys and men will be men. Men, you know who you are, don’t miss out on this time to spend exploring how you are to live life as men of God, eating way too much food, and connecting with one another.
A fun time planned for students graduating from USC this year. It will focus on helping equip students for the transition into post-college life.
