We want to give Generation Z a safe space to find answers. This is because students today question whether the Bible’s claims to truth are trustworthy. As a result, they are not sure if our God can be trusted.  37% of this generation believe it is not possible to know for sure if God is real and 35% label themselves as an atheist, agnostic, or non-religious person. For this reason, our goal is to engage and equip students with biblical truth that can stand up to their questions. As we do that, we want to introduce them to the present and loving God.

Where are we staying?

Cedarmore accommodations are at the secluded Cedar Crest side campus with main sessions held in Martha Ware Chapel. Jonathan Creek accommodations are in the secluded group lodges with main sessions held in Shoemake Chapel. Both of these facilities ensure a distraction-free yet close-knit environment where students can engage in and discuss their questions. Meals will be held in the main dining hall. Please let us know any special accommodation requests such as sensory issues, dietary or other allergies, or other needs. 502-491-7000.

Property housing accommodations vary from small individual church cabins to multi-church lodges. Groups will always be gender separated. Due to limited space at Cedar Crest and Jonathan Creek, we will do our best to keep your entire group together but it is possible that accommodation spaces will be shared.

What is the refund policy?

Our event registration policy requires full payment to hold your spots. A refund minus $20 per person is available if you cancel 30 or more days before the event. After that, the payment is non-refundable.

Will we have participant accounts? What information do you need to provide Crossings?

Navigate is a group-based event. Individual participants will be able to register online through a registration link that will be provided to the group leader at a later date.  Crossings will collect participant information, medical release forms, and breakout session choices through this registration link.

Housing assignments will be sent to the group leader one week before the event.  Groups will also need to provide a Background Check Form for all adult leaders and a Certificate of Liability from your insurance provider.  Don’t worry! Crossings will send reminder emails in early November, December, and January about these items.

What about a packing list?

We will post this later in the Fall!
