Crossways Connections
March 2018

Dear Friends of Crossways,

At our Annual Meeting on February 24 th we announced the timeline for the Crossways Capital Campaign: “Rooted in Faith, Growing to Serve”.

We are wrapping up a year of planning which included: site planning, feasibility study, recruitment and training of campaign committee volunteers, production of the Prospectus and Video, and planning for the launch of the “silent phase” of the campaign to solicit approximately 50% of our base goal to raise $1.8 Million. To learn more about the Crossways Capital Campaign please go our website:
Our camps have served us well for the past 75 years. The results of a successful campaign will enable us to better serve congregations and other groups on a year-round basis in the future. A successful campaign will also strengthen Crossways financially as we continue to focus on a broader ministry impact. By further developing year-round ministry and rental opportunities, we will be able to keep fees low and care for our aging facilities.

We celebrate what God has enabled in the past and pray that God will guide us to continue in the future. We invite you to prayerfully consider supporting our effort when we call on you to ensure Crossways remains, “Rooted in Faith and Growing to Serve”.

In Christ’s Service,
Jake Czarnik-Neimeyer
Capital Campaign Director
