“This ministry is considered to be the one of the most important ministries at the church.” – Pastor Joe
Children are often overlooked by the Church being seen as too young for anything, a time to be babysat, a time for parents to get a break, all the while not realizing the importance of children learning God’s word. These examples show us there is a misconception about what goes on for children in the church.
This is not the case for Crosswalk Kids. We value every child as Christ does. God has commanded parents (Deut 4:9, 6, Eph 5) to teach their children and pass on faith to them. The church comes alongside them in Ephesians 6 to help equip parents to do just that but not to replace them. So, it is important to remember that the Church partners with parents in training & teaching children.

The focus of Crosswalk Youth Ministry is to provide a place where young people can truly begin and grow into a relationship with Jesus Christ. We seek to empower our students with a biblical faith and worldview so that they can live their lives to the Glory of God and edification of others.
Vision: The goal of the youth ministry is to expose God’s word to them, and help equip them with the necessary information & tools that they will need to live in this world.
Mission: This is a group for young people who gather together to do life together, who grow in their relationship with God, and who go out into the world for Him.
