Student Camp

Wired-for-Worship-transparent

Next summer at Crossings, we are going to dive into the Psalms and discover that we are wired for worship. In everything that we do, we are to worship God in our work, in our relationships, in our thinking, and in every area of our life. In a hyper-connected world, we all need to disconnect from our various distractions, idols, and sins so that we can reconnect to our Creator and Redeemer

Kids Camp

Safari_badge_transparent

Crossings Kids in 2018 is going on a Safari—a biblical safari. Join us as we travel to Luke chapter 15. In Luke 15, Jesus presents to us a world of lost things — a lost son, a lost sheep, and a lost coin. Like the lost son, we do things in our own way. Like the lost sheep, we think we know the way when we don’t. Like the lost coin, we need to be found.

Focus Camps

Our 2018 focus camp, Crossings on Mission, is designed to equip, engage, and encourage students in their faith. Crossings on Mission teaches students how to live missionally by pairing Crossings biblical content with hands-on training and experience in community service, evangelism, and construction projects.

Missions Offering

2017 Offering to Cuba:

$101,713

In partnership with the International Mission Board, we raised money to support Cuba to the Nations. Cuban believers and missionaries have the opportunity to take the Gospel to places in South America that other people cannot go. Our missions offerings helped to ensure these missionaries are able to keep going.

2017 One Life Project:

$27,024

61 million kids are left behind in Southeast Asia while their parents seek work in larger cities. These children are left with family members or neighbors and must fend for themselves. To minister to these kids, One Life is starting One Center, a project focused on developing community centers where those left behind can find love, help, and support.

Lifetime Missions Giving:

$1,497,431

The central aspect of our mission statement heralds the fact that we exist to proclaim the Gospel. We want this truth to saturate every moment of your students’ time at camp. For this reason, we continue to raise money to support missionaries and missions organizations around the world. We hope to continue to support for years to come.

Mock Day at Camp

We have spent years honing our schedule to ensure your students and kids have a life-transforming and fun experience at camp. We promise your students will hear the Gospel of Jesus proclaimed every day, experience robust biblical teaching, and participate in Christ-centered worship. Our prayer is that their life will be changed.
