We exist to proclaim the gospel to the next
generation till every student has heard.
When Warren Willis founded the California School Project in 2002, the
mission was to help every high school in California put on one evangelistic
event. And for those first couple of years, we worked at a handful of
schools around the Los Angeles area.
Twenty years later, the national outreach of Decision Point brings the
message of Jesus Christ through regular student-led outreach in 17 states
across our nation, as well as communities not only across the States, but
around the world. Thank you for joining us in proclaiming the timeless
truths of the gospel to the next generation.
Greetings from Decision Point

A Letter from
What an exciting year this has been!
This year, we celebrated 20 years of
God’s faithfulness to this ministry.
As we have looked back on the miracles and milestones, we’ve been
encouraged by how the Lord has worked powerfully as students have
proclaimed the salvation of Jesus at their public schools. Since 2002, we
have equipped and trained students at 539 schools across the nation. These
students have boldly led 2,350 evangelistic rallies with 200,000+ students
attending. Over 1,800 witnessing outings have been organized where 21,000+
people heard the gospel through a personal conversation. In it all, we have
seen nearly 10,000 students indicate faith in Christ on-campus.
Praise God for all He has done!
The Lord has continued to advance the mission.
This year, we have employees on the ground in 11 cities across the country. This is up nearly
fourfold since the launch of our Meant for More campaign in 2019! Our team has also found ways
to mobilize and coach student leaders online. All total, this year we trained and coached student
leaders in 21 states to reach their schools for Christ.
As schools more fully reopened this year, it was thrilling
to watch students boldly share the gospel with their
peers on campus.
Students led weekly Bible studies, personally witnessed to their peers, and led large evangelistic
meetings on campus. Many students saw their perseverance last year pay dividends this year. One
club in LA saw students begin coming to their weekly Bible studies on campus who had started
coming to their club last year when all their meetings were online.
Students have continued showing admirable courage and perseverance through fresh challenges
they have faced this year. For example, many students lost their club advisor during the shutdown
as teachers resigned, moved, or decided they no longer want to be associated with the Christian
club on campus. Many students got pushback from their school administrators in getting their
club or their outreach events approved. And many students faced opposition and mockery from
their peers for their Christian beliefs.
In it all, our Student Leaders were faithful to hold high the hope of Jesus Christ and many were
saved. One of my favorite stories was from a young man named Caleb who was faithfully
witnessing to his friend Shawn in Tucson, Arizona. Caleb relayed a story of finally asking Shawn
what Jesus means to him. “He looked me in the eye,” Caleb recounted, “and said, ‘He’s beginning
to look like the Son of God to me.’” Not long after, Shawn came to Caleb’s outreach on campus
and finally gave his life to Christ. Praise God for Caleb’s faithfulness and the faithfulness of all of
our Student Leaders this year!
And as always, it was a great joy to work alongside pastors as their students were equipped
to do the kind of evangelism that Caleb was doing. You can read about some of the exciting
developments in our church partnership program in the report that follows on page 25.
As campus outreach regained steam, our online
outreach efforts continued full throttle.
The initiatives we developed during the shutdown continued reaching young people every day with the
message of Christ. Videos of some of our favorite guest speakers are seen online by thousands of young
people every single day.
One young lady, named Earline, watched one of these outreach videos and exclaimed,
“Man I don’t know this guy but I looked at his video last night and [it] inspired me in so many ways I accepted
Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior thank you sir for doing what you doing and saying what you’re saying
because it’s got into my heart so deep.”
This year, we also saw new opportunities to bring the
gospel to students not just in the USA but around the world.
One of these ways was to promote our evangelistic videos to
young people worldwide.
As we watched the whole world in a time of great unrest and unparalleled lockdowns, it seemed that
making our evangelistic content available to people beyond the USA was the least we could do. Thanks to
the generosity of a ministry supporter who first suggested we think global, we began promoting our online
outreach videos this September to young people in a dozen countries around the world.
It has been incredible to see the reach and impact. These gospel-centered videos have appeared in the social
media feed of 51 million people over 184 million times! They’ve been clicked nearly 4 million times. We’re now
seeing thousands of people come to our website every day to learn about Jesus. By way of perspective, in
the past 9 months, we’ve seen over 250,000 visits to our evangelistic website from the Philippines alone.
We have also seen a growing number of requests for our
campus program overseas this year.
As our outreach videos have been seen around the world, so has word about our campus outreach program.
Christian students in other countries have seen the campus outreach their peers in America are leading and
have applied to join the movement.
We’ve also seen that God has given many of our staff and Student Leaders connections to spread this
program abroad and a real passion to do so. One of our staff was recently in the Philippines and found
pastors and students there were eager to use our program to reach their public schools. Similarly, one of our
Student Leaders in Phoenix is currently taking the training she is receiving from us to train her friends and
relatives in Congo where she grew up. As we have been approached by other organizations and ministry
leaders about training students in their country to reach their campuses for Christ, our staff and board are
prayerfully considering what God may have for our ministry internationally in the long term. I am excited to
report back to you about how He leads and how some of these opportunities may develop in the future.
As the mission has advanced and we anticipated celebrating
our 20th anniversary, we looked at ways to further accelerate
the mission while staying anchored in God’s truth.
This process resulted in strengthening our doctrinal statement, updating our mission statement, and
adopting Decision Point as the new name for the ministry.
Our doctrinal statement was updated to reflect our commitment to the Biblical message of the gospel
and to the Bible’s teaching on sexuality and gender.
Our mission statement was updated to reflect the ways God has moved this mission into new arenas
online. As the impact online has grown, we had to take a fresh look at our mission statement which
has been, “To coach and mentor students to reach their public schools for Christ.” We want to continue
doing that for decades to come. And we also believe God is calling us to bring the gospel to students in
new ways as well. Our mission statement now reads, “To proclaim the gospel to the next generation.”
This has helped crystallize three key initiatives to accomplish the mission: Campus Outreach, Church
Partnership, and Online Outreach. I am excited about the exponentially greater impact for the gospel we
will, Lord willing, see in the days ahead through these initiatives.
Finally, our name change is designed to help us be ready to go wherever the Lord leads, rallying more
people to the cause and accelerating our impact along the way. We came to see that “National” and
“School” were limiting in terms of scope and sphere of impact. We also wanted a name that amplified
our call to the lost, to Student Leaders, and to the church at large. We wanted a name that students
could use on campus that would streamline their efforts and strengthen their impact. So, we settled on
the name Decision Point. When sharing about the new change with one Student Leader in Orange, CA,
she quickly reacted, saying, “Oh, that’s a perfect name. I can see it all happening already...If I were an
unsaved student, it would really grab me.”
And so after 20 years of the Lord’s work in our ministry, Decision Point is prepared to continue doing
what we’ve always done–unashamedly proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the next generation.
There will always be a next generation that needs to hear of that old, rugged cross. There are many
co-laborers that came before us who gave of their time, talents, and treasure. And there might be many
after us. But in God’s providence, he has placed us here–right now–in a moment where there is much
work to be done. Let us faithfully bear witness to the life and work of our Lord Jesus Christ.
President, Decision Point
The Heart Behind
Our New Brand
Our name Decision Point:
the heart of
what we do.
call to Christian
We believe the most important decision
a young person will make is what they
will do with Christ who says, “Follow me.”
Tragically, millions of young people today
have never heard Christ’s message. So, we are
proclaiming the gospel to the next generation
so they can decide to follow Him.
We are raising up young leaders who decide
now to faithfully witness to those around
them. We want to see the next generation
proudly proclaim, “I have decided to follow
Jesus - the cross before me, the world behind
me. Though none go with me, still I will follow
- no turning back.”
Reminds us that the
teenage years are a
time of decisions.
Guided only by culture’s shifting standards,
students are left to build their lives on sinking
sand. We are helping students learn to build
their lives on the Rock of Christ and His Word.
Tells us that all
God’s people are at
a decision point.
In days of growing hostility, God’s people must
choose. Will we hold high the hope of Christ
no matter the cost? And with all the devil’s
forces out to destroy our youth, will we do all
we can to save the next generation?
Core values reflected in our logo:
Christ is the Light of the World:
Centuries ago, God promised through His prophet Malachi, “The sun of righteousness shall
rise with healing in its wings” (Malachi 4:2). Praise God that in His tender mercy Christ, the
sunrise from on high, visited us and today gives “light to those who sit in darkness and in
the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace” (Luke 1:78-79).
Courage to Stand in the Spotlight:
Witnessing for Christ takes courage, especially for Student Leaders in today’s culture. We
challenge our staff and students to embrace hardship knowing He is worth it and to ask
God for the courage to stand in the spotlight as a leader for the gospel.
Clear Message Focused on the Cross:
Our logo also illustrates our commitment to cross-centered gospel clarity. People
cannot be saved unless they hear the gospel (Romans 10:14). In a world full of
confusion, we need to share the message clearly so that even a young person can
understand and believe.
Call for Response:
God offers salvation to all who will repent and believe. “Everyone who calls on the name
of the Lord will be saved” (Acts 2:21). Today, He calls people everywhere to choose life in
Him just as He did through His messenger Moses saying, “I have set before you life and
death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you…may live” (Deut. 30:19).
Stories of Impact
from Our Current Areas
God is on the move, working through students across the nation! Praise God for the bold students who
impacted lives through on-campus, in-person outreach, and witnessing. The harsh reality of darkness
students experienced coming out of the COVID shutdown was real, students came to school desperate
for hope and light. We know that darkness cannot overcome the light of Jesus. Praise God that in
176 schools, students were met with either an invitation by their peers to Christian club, outreach, or a
conversation about the gospel!
How Students are Trained to
Reach a Campus
Every year, our staff challenge and inspire students to reach their campus for Christ. By speaking
at youth groups, camps and conferences, marketing on social media, and word of mouth, we are
casting a big vision to students of how God could use them to bring the gospel to their school.
When students apply and are accepted to our program, they gain access to personal coaching
and receive a Starter Kit that comes with our Student Leader Guide. This training manual provides
them with an action plan to give their whole school a chance to hear the gospel, respond in faith,
and get plugged into a local church through the following initiatives:
Students are trained to form a leadership team,
launch a Christian club, cast vision, get their club
approved by administrators, and deal with any
opposition they may face along the way.
This year, we helped students lead three
evangelistic Bible studies on campus entitled
Identity, Meant for More, and Who is Jesus?
Collectively, these series helped students
identify their ultimate identity as a child of God,
their worldview, and gave them a chance to
study the Gospel of Mark and the life of Jesus.
Areas with Online Coaching
Our Pray 5 Challenge encourages students
to pray for the salvation of 5 friends and look
for opportunities to share the gospel with
them. Give God’s Word challenges students
to give out free Bibles to as many students as
possible, while Go Witness has students share
the gospel personally with peers on campus.
Host a series of evangelistic rallies on
campus in the gym or auditorium. Invite the
whole school to come through flyers, posters,
PA announcements, and personal invitations
to friends. Bring in guest speakers to share
their testimonies and present the gospel.
with all who
Students fill out response cards to indicate if
they received Christ, would like to learn more
about Jesus, or get an invitation to a local
church. Our Student Leaders personally call
all of these students inviting their peers to get
together one on one, come to their next club
meeting, and invite them to their church.
| Los Angeles
Praise and glory be to God as Jesus was exalted and proclaimed in the Los Angeles Area this school
year! We had the joy of coaching students from 40 schools, and we saw over half of the schools host
multiple gospel outreach events during their lunch periods. Over 2,300 students attended the gospel
events where over 250 students indicated a first-time decision to follow Christ and over 150 students
rededicated their lives to Christ! Gospel seeds were scattered, students learned that God revealed
Himself through Christ, and we saw God’s Spirit at work as students made movements towards
In early April, a middle school in Downey, CA, hosted 3 days of consecutive outreach. We saw 55
students show up on the first day, 61 on the second day, and 94 students on the last day. The word was
spreading day to day, teachers were praying, and students were showing up eager to hear. On the last
day, students were willing to stay even if it meant they had to sit on the ground! It was so packed!
What was also uniquely encouraging was that the club advisor had mobilized nearly 100 people to pray
nationwide! Christian teachers were mobilized to pray and were faithfully praying every day. The club
advisor was calling one of our local staff members who was personally coaching students at the school
on the mornings of the outreaches saying, “Wake up, we need to pray!” One of the most encouraging
testimonies from these outreaches came from this club advisor, and this is what he had to say,
“... I cannot thank ... your terrific team enough for the amazing Kingdom
work you did this last week! I haven’t been able to stop telling people
about it. It was by far the most significant thing I’ve ever experienced as
a teacher and was a tremendous answer to prayer!
“I truly believe the Lord is doing something very powerful on my campus and what you guys did with
Meant for More was a giant part of it! In 22 years of teaching, I’ve never seen both students & staff
talking about Jesus like I have this last week. You may have been able to gauge numbers better by the
amount of pizza you gave out, and I could be wrong, but I counted 94 kids at its peak the last day! I’ve
never had that many kids in my room before, and they all heard a Spirit inspired gospel message! I had to
fight back tears of joy brother!”
From just 3 days of outreach at this middle school, there were 34 first-time decisions and 35
recommitments! Praise God!

This year, our Chicago team coached students at the schools marked with blue
icons. Schools marked with yellow icons represent our “target” schools that our
team is actively praying and working to begin coaching next year.
Our prayer this year has been that God would raise up laborers for “the harvest is plentiful, but
the laborers are few” (Mt. 9:37). It has been incredible to watch as more and more students step
up to reach their campuses and the Lord answers our prayer. We’ve seen students at 52 schools
equipped to launch new clubs or to relaunch their clubs after many were shut down during
COVID. Not only have students stepped up, but two former part-time staff that served with our
ministry as college students decided to come back to the ministry and join full-time. One of those
new staff, Dekota Johnson, shared with us,
“When I was 13 years old I came to know Christ and felt the
call to ministry in the States. Now 13 years later, he has confirmed
that this is the time for me to put both feet in the water and to work
to bring revival to this nation and to reach the next generation!”
These new staff members will provide needed help for our southwest suburbs and west
One student named Jackson launched his club and saw his friend Omar (name changed for
privacy) attend the club. At the first meeting, Omar was only interested in the pizza and when
he found out it was going to be given out at the end, he pulled out his homework and put his
headphones on. Jackson was disappointed, but decided to pray “God, would you let Omar listen
and take off his headphones.” After two minutes Omar took them off and began listening intently.
That day, he heard the gospel and began asking questions. Jackson did his best to answer his
friend’s questions and gave him a Bible. Coming from a Muslim background, Omar began reading
it in secret and in just a few months has gone through the first 9 books of the Bible while reading
dozens of passages from the New Testament.
Omar posted the words on his Snapchat story, “God, thank you so much for making a way for us
to have a relationship with you; all relationships take time, show me how I can intentionally spend
time with you. In Jesus name, Amen.” Omar gave his life to Christ and began following Him.
Later, when the Christian club hosted their outreach, Omar decided to skip the end of Ramadan
and went instead to help promote the gospel at his school. By God’s grace, 270 students came
and dozens responded to Christ because of Jackson and Omar’s leadership.

| San Francisco Bay Area
God is moving powerfully in the hearts of Bay Area students! This year, we had the privilege of
coaching Student Leaders from 31 schools, we were able to see over 3,000 students hear the gospel
at schools, and watch as 215 students made first-time decisions to follow Jesus! Furthermore, we
saw God break new ground, with first-time campus outreaches in 3 new counties: San Francisco,
San Mateo, and Santa Cruz. Last May, we hosted our first Pastor Conference to challenge pastors to
partner with us to coach students in their own youth groups. As a result, 13 pastors created 2 cohorts
to collectively coach students at 18 schools.
In February, I got connected with Reeve, the Youth Pastor at Regeneration Church in Scotts Valley. He
joined a pastor cohort to start coaching God-Squad, the Christian club at Scotts Valley High School.
In early May, Macy, the President of God-Squad, decided to host a Meant for More Week with only a
couple of weeks left of school. Through weekly coaching from Reeve, she planned 3 days of outreach
and got her other 3 club members excited about the opportunity of spreading the gospel at their
school. The weekend before the Meant for More week, Macy tested positive for COVID and was not
allowed back on campus. Consequently, the first 2 days of their outreach get canceled. However,
God-Squad remained faithful and prayed for the best possible outcome for their first outreach ever!
About 50 students came and heard Reeve share his testimony and the gospel, and 5 gave their life
to Jesus that day! A student from my youth group has been pouring into his best friend for 2 years,
who is not a Christian. He brought him to the event, and his friend gave his life to Jesus! The next day,
Reeve also got a message from a parent he doesn’t know.
“My daughter is a freshman at Scotts Valley High School. She received the invitation yesterday by the
God-Squad to come have Taco Bell and hear you speak. My heart was overjoyed to hear all of this
yesterday. She came home and shared your testimony with me. She is a Christian, and seeing Christ’s
love and light shine boldly and brightly through you at her high school encouraged her heart.
“It’s not always easy being a Christian in public school. God bless you,
and I am praying that Jesus would continue to embolden you to share
His goodness and truth in dark places.”
This all goes to prove that no matter a club’s size, or the obstacles and unexpected circumstances
that will be encountered, the Word of God will not return void when Christians are faithful in

In 2020, the Tucson Area was coaching students from
5 schools, which has now grown to 15 schools!
The Lord accomplished much in Tucson this year as we saw the ministry go from being an
expansion city to a fully established ministry. We’ve been able to work with more and more
churches, community members, students, and parents, as our long-term staff team has grown
from 1 to 3 people!
With our Lead Coach and 8 volunteer coaches, we had the privilege of coaching 50 students from
15 schools in the Tucson Area! Praise the Lord! 7 of those schools hosted 23 gospel outreaches this
spring where we saw 2,016 students in attendance. 67 students made first-time decisions to follow
Christ and 156 recommitted their walk with Christ! Furthermore, 365 students noted on their response
card they would like to talk to someone about what it means to have a relationship with God.
One of our biggest prayers and challenges has been for God to open doors within the Tucson Unified
School District since most of our schools are on the outskirts of the city. This year, the Lord connected
us to Tucson Baptist Church (TBC) to coach students at Palo Verde High Magnet School in central
Tucson. Three students from TBC’s youth group led Palo Verde High’s Christian club this school year
and the very first outreach week to ever take place on Palo Verde’s campus! Martín, Alejandro, and
Alexis worked hard to run 5 days of gospel rallies in the gym.
Palo Verde’s outreach week was a beautiful picture of student ownership and church partnership as
church staff attended each day in support of these student leaders. Momentum grew on campus
throughout the week and daily attendance grew each day, starting with 50 students on Tuesday and
ending with 103 students on Friday. That’s 20% of the entire student body.
One student named Jeremiah was invited by club president, Martín. Jeremiah attended every day, but
the Lord especially moved in his heart on Thursday when he got to hear two of his friends, Martín and
Alejandro share their testimonies. Jeremiah stayed after the event was over to talk with Martín and
a pastor in attendance. He shared that he felt he was going to hell and wanted to make a decision to
follow Christ! Martín and his youth pastor were able to talk and pray with him and gave him a bible and
an invitation to youth group. This is just one of a multiple of stories of Tucson students seeing their
friends’ lives changed this year!
“I’m just very thankful for all the help and support, I really wouldn’t have
been able to lead a Bible club without the help of Decision Point.”

Praise God for how He has moved in Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) this last year! We are so thankful as we
look back at celebrating 2 years in DFW. 2021-2022 has been filled with growth in church partnerships,
community support, and students standing for a change in their school. He has been so faithful. We
have seen incredible students from 9 schools all across the DFW metroplex be bold witnesses for the
Lord, which has allowed 2,446 students to hear the gospel in school!
A group of students at Weatherford High School hosted their first-ever outreach that gave 350
students the opportunity to hear and respond to the gospel message. Little did we know that one
of the Weatherford High School Student Leaders named Gracie was actually coaching Alli, a ninthgrader
from Weatherford High School Ninth Grade Center, to host her own Meant for More outreach
at her school! Alli came up and told us that she wanted to give her peers at the Ninth Grade Center
an opportunity to hear the gospel. She said, “I have it all planned and would love for you guys to be a
part”. We were blown away that Gracie, a sophomore, was coaching Alli to help her get the entire week
of outreach planned!
The week of Alli’s outreach events, they were unsure how many students were going to show up
because they were not able to do much promotion for the event. On the very first day, over 100
students showed up to hear the gospel message in the library. On days 2-5 of the outreach week, over
400 students came each day! We were even busting at the seams in the cafeteria with standing room
only for those that did not come early. Because of Alli’s boldness and willingness to make an impact
in her school and on her generation, over 1,600 students heard the gospel, with over 150 students
making decisions for the Lord!
Alli shared about her outreach week:
“I still can’t believe what happened last week, it was so amazing and I’m
so grateful I got to do it with Decision Point! I can’t wait to go through
all of the response cards and see how many lives were changed!”
It has been a privilege to work with these incredible ambassadors for the Kingdom. Each one of them
standing up to proclaim Jesus loudly in their schools in the midst of challenges, discouragement,
and setbacks. We are praising God in DFW that our bold students stood strong, the gospel was
proclaimed, and people responded!

In 2020, Xavier joined the club leadership team at his school, while inspiring students at two other
schools to launch clubs. Now, God has raised up 28 student leaders at eleven schools who are boldly
leading for Christ across Ohio. There have been 12 days of outreach where over 400 individual students
have come multiple times to hear about the good news of Jesus Christ. One student named Nikola
heard the gospel at the outreaches and received his first Bible. He came to all four days of outreach and
he told the leaders, “I had the best time at the event. I can’t wait to read this Bible!
Alli Beck, one of our former Student Leaders from Wheaton North High School, decided that she
wanted to bring the ministry to the schools nearby Taylor University where she now goes to college.
This year she coached students at Eastbrook High School to host the first outreaches we’ve ever
supported in Indiana! Two dozen students came and heard the gospel. Several students stood up
in front of their peers and boldly shared their testimony. At the end, one student said, “That was so
awesome we could do that, and man, there is still so much work to do at Eastbrook High School!
I can’t wait to do more things like this, and reach more and more people with the gospel message.
God has done so many amazing things in my life, and I want all my classmates to experience these
things too!” Pray that we could continue to reach more schools in Indiana!
We have been praying for opportunities to reach students in California’s capital for a long time!
Praise God for bringing Joey Martinez to our team to coach schools in the area. Joey started being
coached by our ministry in 2015 as a middle school student, where he was equipped to share the
gospel and lead outreaches until he graduated from high school. This had a huge impact on Joey’s
life and helped him realize that the Lord is calling him to ministry. This year, during his freshman
year of college, Joey joined our team as a part-time staff member! He’s been able to coach
students at his alma mater, Lincoln High School, and help a student launch a Christian club at a
brand new high school. He’s also been working hard to build relationships with the youth pastors in
the area, setting up opportunities for more campus ministry.
Super Summer, a camp in Oklahoma, connected us with a group of students who received weekly
coaching from us in order to learn how to start a Christian club and reach their school. One of those
students was Hallee who had faced opposition and bullying as she tried to start a Christian club.
Hearing about our ministry and realizing that she was not alone gave Hallee the vital encouragement
to carry on and keep going this school year. We are excited to return to Super Summer again this year
and have an additional opportunity to connect with youth pastors and share with them the key role
they can play in supporting their students in reaching their school.
Josephine, a current senior at Apollo High School in
Glendale, AZ, has a strong passion for the Lord and
a zealous heart to reach the lost. Josephine and her
family moved to Phoenix two years ago as refugees
from Tanzania. While searching online for youth ministry
opportunities, Josephine came across Decision Point’s
website and discovered the opportunity she has to reach
students on her campus. With excitement, she signed
up to be a Student Leader to boldly reach her school
for Christ. This past semester, she reached out to an
existing Christian club at Apollo HS and even recruited
her younger sister Tumaini to join her as a freshman.
While working to reach Apollo, Josephine has also taken
the initiative to coach students back in her home country
of the Congo to reach their schools for Christ. Praise God
for courageous students like Josephine!

Our new staff Hank Hornstein has been laying
some key groundwork in San Antonio that
resulted in a multi-church Meant for More event
in April that will launch new school clubs and
outreaches. Hank will also be running student
workshops at a camp made up of 13 churches
and 600 students to equip students on how to
share their faith and inspire them to reach their
camps with the gospel.
This year, Rosa Ruiz joined our staff
part-time to work on new connections in
Boston. We kicked off the year at a youth
pastors conference where we were able
to connect with both youth pastors and
students. We have coached students
in several schools this year and built
relationships with pastors. This summer,
we are excited to partner with a summer
camp where we will spend 3 days
training 80 mission-minded students to
start school clubs and hold outreaches.
A national pastors gathering connected our staff
with a youth pastor in Janesville, Wisconsin.
This youth pastor wanted to not only inspire his
own youth to reach their schools but get 6 other
churches to join forces and hold a combined
Meant for More Night to commission the youth
in the entire county for their mission field. Pastor
Michael Powers comments,
“In my 36 years of youth ministry, I had never
heard that you could legally share the gospel
at an event on school grounds and during
Students at multi-church Meant for More night circle
up at tables by their school to discuss how they will
step up to reach their school with the gospel.
That night they had students circle up by school
and talk about what they would do to bring the
gospel to their school. From that discussion,
students from 10 different schools indicated they
were ready to start a club. The Lord is clearly
stirring hearts for the gospel and we’re praying
that this momentum would continue into new
schools, cities, and churches across southern
This year we trained Student Leaders at 23
schools in 7 states via our Online Coaching program.
In recent years, a valuable opportunity has been opening up to be able to get high-quality training to any
student across the country. In spring 2021, we piloted an online coaching program that allowed us to coach
several students in groups. That spring, we helped equip several of these students in the group coaching
model to reach their campus for Christ, and a few students from this program are still with us today!
This year, we wanted to provide more personalized training to a select number of students around the
country by pairing them up with our campus ministry staff members for one-on-one online coaching.
Students were coming across our social media ads every day about this opportunity, with over 160
students clicking a link to start an application process. While not all of these students were ready to reach
their school, praise the Lord we were able to provide personal coaching from our staff to students at 23
schools across the U.S.

Ashley (middle row, second from left) started her club in the midst of COVID and transitioned it to
being hybrid and eventually in-person. We met weekly with Ashley and her team each week for the
past several years and these students were able to receive online coaching to practice their inperson
talks digitally, be trained to go witnessing at lunchtime every other week, and hold the first
after school gospel event on their campus this past spring!

Julissa discovered our ministry through one of our social media ads last
fall. She soon invited her friend Maquiver to apply for coaching with her
also. Since they didn’t have a club yet, they both took the challenge to share
the gospel whenever they could! Maquiver was already actively sharing his
faith, but he’s been thankful that our training has sharpened his witnessing
skills even more. Their excitement for ministry has been contagious as
they’ve even recruited a friend at another school to apply for coaching!
Maquiver and Julissa are now planning on partnering with the Campus Life
club on-campus to lead outreach this school year.
What’s next for
We can’t ignore the opportunity God has put before us. Christian students
across the U.S. are gravitating towards the call of being a missionary to their
campus, and we want to help equip them. This year, we’re planning to give an
opportunity for students around the country to join online coaching groups,
where they will partake in an 8-week outreach training course. By the end of it,
students will have all they need to lead outreach at their school!
We are particularly excited to connect with these online student’s pastors. Not
only is local pastoral involvement necessary for students to succeed, but we’re
excited to build connections with churches across the nation. The opportunities
that the Lord might have for churches to be empowered and new frontiers
equipped to share the gospel are incredible to imagine as we connect with
pastors from anywhere in the nation.
Online Coaching Director
Church & Ministry
This year we have seen a shift in partnership with
churches and youth pastors. We are inviting them into a
deeper partnership where we empower them to inspire
and equip their students and incorporate campus
ministry into their ministry plan. We provide all the
resources and support necessary for the youth pastor
or one of their key leaders to coach their students. This
provides an opportunity for broader, faster, and more
sustainable growth. Youth pastors are invited to join
seminars, retreats, and cohorts to get all the training
they need to become our ministry partners in the effort
to reach every student with the gospel before they
graduate. In 5 different cities this past year, we ran
multiple youth pastor conferences and our staff met
regularly with 24 pastors throughout the year to equip
them to coach their students in 37 schools.
Our partnership with Next Generation Impact (NGI)
has laid important groundwork to successfully
establish committed church partnerships to launch
Bible clubs in elementary schools across Oklahoma
and Georgia. In addition to elementary schools, NGI
is able to equip these churches to empower their
middle and high school students to lead Decision
Point Bible Clubs and outreaches. In the coming
school year, we are eager to see our partnership bear
more fruit as our staff liaison Barry Williams works
to create connection points with dozens of churches
in Savannah, Georgia, to launch even more Christian
clubs and outreaches across the surrounding area.
Camps and Conferences
This summer, we are poised to interact with 20,000
Christian students and 400 pastors at conferences
and camps across the country in California,
Oklahoma, Colorado, Indiana, and Massachusetts.
We will be holding workshops for students to learn
how they can reach their school with the gospel
and to introduce our resources and coaching to
accomplish this mission. We will also be able to
connect with youth pastors and have established a
streamlined process to continue working with both
students and youth pastors beyond camp.
This Spring brought the exciting opportunity to
work with students in a school in Peru. The school
was eager to have their students join our Meant
for More movement and step up to be gospel
leaders in their school. Through online coaching
sessions and the use of our training materials, the
staff hand-picked students ready for leadership
and commissioned them to be gospel leaders. This
leadership training series was significant for the
spiritual growth of these students and for outreach
to other students. We look forward to continuing to
support the school in its efforts to raise up young
gospel leaders to reach their generation both in
their school and in their community.
Church & Ministry Partnerships Director
At the start of the Meant for More Campaign, we never would have imagined the extent to which the Lord
would use our ministry to reach young people online. Our online outreach efforts were just beginning, and
we had no idea what to expect. Three years later, we are astounded by the sheer volume of young people
that have been presented with an opportunity to respond to the gospel online through our social ads,
search terms, 24/7 live chat, and full-length video testimonials that share the gospel in its entirety.

A student in Zambia finds new life in Jesus in our 24/7 chat
In May, Layla, a 20-year-old student from Zambia shared in the Meant for More online chat, “Everyone
has something special which I see that I don’t have…I feel like I’m a loser.” Recognizing Layla’s unspoken
need, Lillian, a volunteer online coach shared Zephaniah 3:17 with her, “The LORD thy God in the midst of
thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee
with singing.” Encouraged, Layla exclaimed, “Now I know I’m special…I would love to accept Christ.” Lillian
explained the gospel to Layla and after giving her life to Christ, Layla explained, “I wanted to be a person
who does everything a teenager does, being on social media and doing wrong, focusing on fashion but
from now on I’ll try live a simple life that satisfies God only.”
Our online ads are helping young people find Jesus
Read the comments below to see their real reactions.
This year we launched a pilot program to make our online outreach material available in multiple
English speaking countries around the globe. We learned there is a huge demand and the response
blew us away! We saw 3,060,000 clicks internationally with 2,064,000 from the Philippines alone.
Though Decision Point’s online outreach efforts were launched during the coronavirus pandemic, it is
apparent that young people are more hungry for the gospel than ever before and desperate to hear the
message of hope. We believe we have only experienced a small fraction of the gospel fruit that can be
won through this strategy and it is our intention to continue to grow our online presence in the years to
come so that more people worldwide might come to saving faith in Christ Jesus.
God has been faithful to our ministry throughout the Meant for More Campaign, through the pandemic
and the closing of schools. We set out to give 1 million students the opportunity to hear the gospel and
expand to 12 cities. As schools reopened, our on-campus ministry re-emerged, while we continued
to reach students through our online outreach efforts. The Lord continued to move through students
across the country, as they were not deterred and shared the love of Christ at school and beyond.
Our goal was to raise $8.4 million to fund these efforts and support the courageous students who are
boldly proclaiming the gospel to the next generation — their generation. To date, the Lord has provided
approximately $7 million dollars toward the $8.4 million goal.
The Meant for More Campaign concludes on May 31, 2023. We are praying the Lord will provide the
remaining $1.4 million, through gifts and pledges, by December 31, 2022, providing a strong foundation
as we head into 2023.
I am so grateful for all of our financial supporters. The ministry does not exist without their generous
giving. It is inspiring to witness the amazing generosity from supporters. I praise God for our Decision
Point Monthly Partners, who give $46/month+ to help send students into the mission field of their
public schools — proclaiming the gospel, till every student has heard!

As we continue to pray for God to send laborers into the harvest field, we were blown away as the year came
to a close with His clear provision of one, then two, then four, and more staff members. As it turned out, we
confirmed 5 new long-time staff members to join the team in 5 consecutive weeks between April and May. All
told this year, we’re celebrating 10 new long-term staff members on the team since July of 2021.

Warren & Board
What a big mission in front of us. And what a blessing it is to serve our Lord “who is able to do far more
abundantly than all that we ask or think” (Ephesians 3:20). As the mission expands to new lands and frontiers,
the reality is that people everywhere are faced with important decisions. And the most important decision
people make is if they will follow Jesus.
I’m excited that the mission that was started over 20 years ago continues today under our new name Decision
Point. Bold, courageous, Christian students want to share the gospel, and hurting, spiritually dead students
need to hear the good news. While the ministry continues to expand on campuses across the country, to
online spaces, and potentially even abroad, the core of what we do is the same: proclaim the message of
Jesus Christ to lost sinners. And so, everyone in Decision Point is constantly being challenged to share with others.
Recently, my wife Mary and I went to the airport to pick up my daughter-in-law and two grandchildren who
were flying in to visit. After a little while of waiting in the car at the terminal, I noticed that there were two
elderly ladies standing on the curb smiling in my direction. Mary and I struck up a brief conversation before
our family arrived. As we dropped off the luggage in the trunk and prepared to leave, I turned back, and said to
the ladies, “You know, this doesn’t have to be ‘Goodbye, forever.’” Pulling two gospel booklets out of my shirt
pocket, I handed them one each. Then said, “if you follow the instructions in this booklet, you will one day find
yourself in heaven and when you get there, look me up!” Three minutes in the life of Warren Willis. There are so
many opportunities in all of our lives to share the good news if we’re willing to look for them.
As we’ve seen the Lord build a team out here in Texas these past several years, we’ve continued to instill this
urgency and this perspective in our leaders. The Lord has provided Jonathan and Katie Medina as directors of
the Dallas-Fort Worth Ministry and Hank Hornstein as director in San Antonio, all proven leaders. The Medinas
with 20 years of combined youth ministry experience and Hank Hornstein with 51 years in Campus Crusade
for Christ, now Cru. Additionally, in Austin, the Lord has provided Rick Hewlett, a retiree, who continues to say,
“I’m in this for the long haul!” And under their leadership, we’ve seen more Christians mobilized to share the
gospel with their friends, family members, and people they don’t even know. Just a few years ago, there was
no Texas ministry and now we’ve seen the Lord work to build the ministry in city after city.
So the ministry continues to advance towards students, communities, and people that need to hear the
gospel. With an incredible team of leaders, it’ll be exciting to see the great works that the Lord will do in us
and for His Kingdom.
