Crossings On Mission 2018-06-15T13:49:32+00:00

The great missionary David Livingstone said, “Sympathy is no substitute for action.” As we have called students year after year to give to missions and to pray for missionaries, we want them to translate this missional mindset into action. Crossings On Mission is about giving your students unique opportunities to share the Gospel, serve others, and grow in their relationship with Jesus. Crossings On Mission will bring the same robust biblical teaching and Christ-centered worship to our nightly worship services as you have come to expect every year at Jonathan Creek and Cedarmore. As your students seek to transform the world around them, we will make sure there is ample time for them to sit under the teaching of God’s transforming word. We will train your students to know the biblical imperative of missions and to think biblically about their missional approach.  Missions tracks will include work projects, community service, evangelism, and children’s ministry. Our partnerships with local churches, associations, church plants, and community service organizations ensure that your students will make a kingdom impact in Chicago and eastern Kentucky. Then, we will equip them to apply in the field what they are learning each night.


In Partnership with the North American Mission Board
In partnership with NAMB missionaries and the Illinois Baptist Convention, students at Trinity will work through Chicago-area church plants to ensure that they have the opportunity to do real work and bear real fruit sharing and showing the love of Jesus.
