Helping Students Cross Over From Death To Life

JOHN 5:24

CrossOver is a youth ministry for students in 7th-12th grade that offers a youth church service each week, small groups, special events, missions trips, and leadership experiences. CrossOver’s mission is to connect students to Christ, to help students grow in their walk with Christ, and to reach the lost!

Our goal is to create a dynamic and relevant ministry that students want to be a part of. To equip and enable students to take ownership of, and use their gifts on a regular basis. To develop a culture of transparent, sincere worship that permeates lives. To instill Biblical teaching in students; so they know what they believe and can defend it. To facilitate the growth of ACTIVE faith. And, to have fun!

WHAT IS FINE ARTS?

Fine Arts Festival is a discipleship tool of the AG Youth Ministries designed to help students discover, develop, and deploy their ministry gifts and to learn about their God-given abilities and talents.

We, along with leaders and family members, encourage students to develop their gifts and then use them in their schools, churches, and communities. Fine Arts Festivals enable students to experience a time of learning through evaluations, workshops, and interaction with other students.

These students are encouraged to develop their gifts to a greater level than the year before. Students may enter as many as 80+ categories offered in 7 main divisions: Art, Communication, Dance, Drama, Instrumental, Vocal, and Writing.

Fine Arts has the potential to be much more than “just a festival.” We desire to stand together with students as they open the doors to their futures.

By supporting your students—through encouragement, mentoring, finances, etc.—we can be a united front as Assemblies of God students become empowered in their giftings.

For the full list of categories, check out the Fine Arts Rule Book: faith-ag.com/finearts-rulebook

SPEED THE LIGHT

Speed the Light is the student-initiated, volunteer, charitable program that provides much-needed equipment to missionaries across the nation and in over 180 countries around the world.

The concept is simple: we give so others can speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness. This is accomplished by providing the “essential transportation and creative communication” equipment for missionary evangelism. Through modern transportation, radio, television, print, audio, and digital equipment, our missionaries can help make Jesus known.
