Crossings Summer Staff 2017-08-14T09:02:33+00:00

This past summer has been such an incredible experience. I have watched kids be completely transformed by the gospel but along with that I have formed such a strong bond with other staffers. This job isn't the easiest in the world but it's one of the hardest jobs I will ever love. There has been good days and bad days, but through it all I have seen the Lord change so many lives. The Lord has also opened my heart to a lot of things. It's crazy to think this summer has come to a close but our jobs do not stop here. They continue as we head back to our lives. I have loved this summer and these people.

"The Lord has grown me and my fellow staffers..."

For the students who experience Crossings for a week, they participate in fun games, exciting activities, and hear biblical teaching. As a Summer Staffer our days consist of early mornings, long afternoons, and late nights. We are trained to clean toilets to perfection and expected to give our all every moment. And, ultimately, the task before us is to share the Gospel with the hundreds of souls literally bused to us. By our own power, this would be impossible. But this summer, I witnessed the power of the Gospel like never before. The Lord has brought together the most unified, ministry-minded, and Gospel-focused group of people to work for the common goal of proclaiming the Gospel this summer. The Lord has grown me and my fellow staffers in countless ways. Each day he molds us more in Christ-likeness. Though the days are exhausting, just seeing how God has mercifully worked in the hearts of students and staffers alike makes it all worth it.

PREPARE

Get ready to experience a life changing summer at Crossings!

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. 

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

I have spent three summers on summer staff at crossings. Each summer the Lord has grown me in my walk with him and shown me his glory more and more. Night after night, week after week I get to watch students trust Jesus and understand the gospel for the first time. I have the opportunity to proclaim the gospel during small groups and POI's. I am amazed that God chooses to work through a messy sinner like me. I am so thankful for all I have learned while serving at Crossings. I pray that I continue to use what I've learned here every day when I go home.

Endeavor College Retreat

The college years are often the most pivotal in a young adult’s life. What does it mean to follow Jesus as an adult? What church will I join? Who are my friends? What will be my vocation? These are pressing questions many young adults find difficult to answer. As you navigate your life and set out to pursue every good endeavor in life, we want to encourage you, equip you, and give you biblical answers to these vital questions.
