The Compassion to Action Story

 Stadium Events

One morning as I was talking to God, an unusual prayer came on my lips. I remember suddenly crying out, saying, “God, I want to see one hundred million souls saved!” As tears began to flow down my face, I began to prophesy into this prayer. I knew in that moment that I was hand-picked to be a part of something bigger than myself. God showed me a vision of America’s college campuses being impacted by the preaching of the gospel. I saw disciples being made who were filled with passion for Jesus. I saw young people that were ready to give their lives to something bigger than themselves and who knew they could help change the course of history. I began to see stadiums filled with people, and from them came a radical discipleship movement of believers displaying the power of the Holy Spirit. I began to dream about planting schools where we would provide tools to equip and encourage the everyday evangelist. Then God spoke to me about making brief, powerful videos for new believers that would lay a foundation for their first steps in walking with Jesus. I heard God speak to me about founding discipleship houses at universities all across America, filled with students living the gospel as a lifestyle.

God has given us a clear vision. This is His dream. He has been faithful to provide everything we’ve needed along the way.

We are a non-denominational movement, passionate about making disciples for Jesus. We have an eternal perspective on life; we inspire people to live on purpose with eternity in mind. The Holy Spirit enables us to awaken human hearts in order to impact society. God, our Father, has given us a vision to reach millions of people with the compassion of Christ. It is our mandate as a community of faith-filled believers to train and equip this generation to fulfill the Great Commission.  



Compassion to Action is a movement focused on equipping a generation to change their world through the power of compassion.

“Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20


We spread the power of compassion through activating and discipling the everyday person through our university ministries, CTA schools, stadium events, social justice projects, short term missions, and media platforms.
