The Crosstown Student Movement is a nurturing Christian community that equips teenagers with the clear understanding of the Gospel so that they might desire a personal relationship with Christ and feel compelled to move the gospel forward with excitement, energy and creativity. It is Crosstown’s desire that our teens develop hearts that hunger for the Lord, minds that seek His ways and spirits that long to give Him glory. Sometimes glorifying God will look like participating in a service project or engaging in a worship night. At other times, it may simply be enjoying the mutual bond we share as believers in Christ through fellowship. In all things, big or small, we want to give praise to the one who made us and redeemed us, and we desire to see this generation take a stand for Jesus Christ.
The Crosstown Student Movement is a ministry that works with teens from the sixth grade to seniors in high school. It is the goal of this student movement that each student feel loved and accepted no matter who they are, what they look like or how many friends they have.
At the core of any ministry are relationships. That’s why one of the primary focuses of the Crosstown Student Movement is building relationships with the kids that extend far beyond just knowing their name and school. Jesus modeled discipleship by poring over his apostles’ lives. We hope to do the same. As an old ministry saying goes: “They won’t care what you know, until they know that you care.
The end-goal of the Crosstown Student Movement is to help parents and guardians equip their teenagers to be disciples of Jesus who are theologically sound, who in turn will go on to become vital members of the church in the college years and beyond.
Hopefully, with God’s direction and blessing, each student that graduates out of the Crosstown Student Movement will do so loving Jesus more than before and growing in a faith they can claim as their own.
