Who We Work With

Partnering to Advance the Gospel

Crossings on Mission works with churches to support the gospel work happening in their communities and to bless these partners with fruitful labor. During this four-night camp, mission site work occurs in the afternoons for three days and may include street evangelism, backyard Bible clubs for kids, community events, painting, yard work, and other light construction. We guarantee that your students will have the opportunity to both share and show the love of Christ.

Engaging Gen Z to Own & Share Their Faith

Generation Z is eager to make a difference in the world and wants a safe place to ask questions. It’s no longer enough to tell your students that the Bible is the inherent truth and to believe what it says. We want to help students understand the gospel, so they can own the gospel, and so they can confidently share the gospel.

For this reason, we dedicate intentional time each morning to basic apologetics training to address the questions that your students wrestle with the most. Your students will learn to share the gospel in a compelling and clear way and to defend their faith as they share the good news of Christ.

Glorifying God Together

Our mission is to proclaim the gospel throughout the day — not just to the community we’re serving, but to your students, as well. That’s why we bring our rock-solid curriculum and worship pastor to Crossings on Mission.

Grow closer as a youth group as you bring glory to God together through corporate worship, intimate Bible study time, and community service projects.

Advancing the Gospel at Home

Sharing the gospel shouldn’t end once your students leave camp. We want to see God start a movement in your community, starting with your students! Our hope is that this experience would equip and engage them to boldly share and show the love of Christ with their friends and in their schools and communities.

John Pendleton

John Pendleton is the College and Discipleship Pastor for First Baptist Church Jacksonville, in Alabama. Before that, he was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky where he served as a Youth leader and Gospel Community Group leader. John grew up in Mobile, Alabama, and was blessed with Christian parents who faithfully led his family to attend church. His first memory of hearing the Gospel was at five years old during a lesson on The Rich Man and Lazarus from Luke 16. It impressed on him an understanding of sin, its punishment, and the reason for the cross. At twelve years old he made his first public profession of faith and repentance and was baptized shortly after. During high school, John was involved in Christian music which sparked an interest in theology, evangelism, and church ministry. Early in college he felt called to preaching and pastoral ministry, and this calling was affirmed through mentors and local church teaching. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Philosophy from the University of South Alabama, John obtained his Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2018. John is married to his wife, Baylee, and enjoys reading, music, weightlifting, and spending time with his family in Alabama.
