NAMB Black Transparent
There are two heartbeats for Crossings On Mission. The primary pulse is our hands-on ministry opportunities with North American Mission Board church planters. Your goal is to bless and help your assigned church planter in any and every way possible. Our hope is that you will begin praying for them before camp, eagerly serve them and encourage them while at camp, and consider active ways to partner with them after camp. They have fruitful work planned for your students that will allow your students to engage Chicago and Cincinnati with the Gospel and will greatly benefit these planters.
Our second pulse is for Generation Z. Generation Z are those born between 1999 and 2015. Generally speaking, they are your students in your youth group. We have been learning more and more about Generation Z as an organization and are doing everything we can to switch our tactics in order to reach them. One of the joys of serving Generation Z is that they want to discuss their faith and have a safe place to ask hard questions. For this reason, we are dedicating our morning Bible Study time to considering the challenges of church planting and introducing some basic apologetics to address their most commonly answered questions.

Our NAMB Chicago
Church Planter Partners

Advent Church: Dennis Conner is planting Advent Church in the South Loop. Dennis has planted churches and served as a catalyst for the North American Mission Board. Those who work with Dennis will participate in community events and engagement, street evangelism, and children’s ministry in south loop parks.

Sow Community Church: Bryan Coble is the pastor of the newly planted Sow Community Church in the Irving Park neighborhood of Chicago. Groups working with Bryan will participate in street evangelism and surveying, cleaning and building relationships at the Independence Park Community Center, and perhaps some light construction projects.

Elmwood Park Community Church: Work with Pastor Sean to reach the community of Elmwood Park. Elmwood Park is a predominantly Polish neighborhood. Those who work with Elmwood Park will help with painting and clean-up projects, ministry in the parks with children, street evangelism, and surveys of the neighborhood.

Urban Voice Community Church: Work with Mark Chan in the Bridgeport Community through community surveys, building improvement projects, and loving on children through their after-school outreach program.

Starting Point Community Church: Work with Pastor Jonathan de la O to reach second- and third-generation Hispanics in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood of northwest Chicago. Those working with Jonathan will focus on community surveys, street evangelism, and perhaps a community outreach event in the park the last night of camp.
