The message below from a parent speaks loud and clear about the value of an outdoor ministry camp experience and the Mission of Crossways: Bringing People Together in Christ so Lives are Changed and Communities Enhanced:

"My son attended Confirmation Camp last June. On the way home, my son and another boy were talking in the car about their experiences. The boy said to my son, "last night at the candle light service did you feel something? Like a really good feeling?" My son said "YES I totally felt that!" I told them that that was the Holy Spirit and asked them if it changed how they thought of life and God etc. The boys said that they will NEVER doubt that there is a God again! Then he said, "Mom, it's weird... when we got to camp, some of us were jocks, some were nerds, some were geeks, some were cool kids, but when we left, we were all brothers." LOVE!!! Thank you and your staff for the amazing experience!!"

This message is a powerful reminder of the important role that outdoor ministry plays in the faith formation of our youth, the staff and adults who have come to experience the life-changing experience at Imago Dei Village, Pine Lake and Waypost. Isn't this the experience that any parent would want for their child or other members of their family or congregation? Staff and Families will also tell you that camp changed their lives by profoundly influencing their career choice, renewed their faith, strengthening their family unity or introducing their future spouse to them.

The future for Crossways is bright as we retire our debt in June and see an increase in our 'youth camp' programs this summer. Your support is so important as we grow the ministry by creating new programs and retreats, expand our staff, improve our facilities and increase the level of service to congregations and the community.

Please help us reach our SPRING APPEAL Goal of $60,000 by June 15th so we can meet the increasing need for camper scholarships. Thank you for your support of this vital ministry!
