Welcome to
YouthCrossing!

We are the youth ministry of The Crossing. If you are a student, grades 6-12, you are invited to join us on Wednesday nights as we explore God’s truth, experience His grace, and express His love. No matter where you are in your relationship with Jesus, we’d love for you to come and see if this is your thing.

(Hint: We think it will be!)

Wednesdays

beginning again 8/23
6:30 - 8:30 pm

Want to know what to expect your first time at YouthCrossing? First, take a deep breath. We have new faces joining us every week and we LOVE it! Next, it will ease your nervousness (if you have any) to take a look at what happens in the first five minutes of the night:

Minute 1

Be welcomed by a team of student and adult leaders.

Minute 2

Fill out an information card so that the next time you attend YC, you’ll already be in our system. (Pro tip: Fill out the form below and you can skip this step!)

Minute 3-4

Get connected with one of our trusted adults or student leaders who will be a member of your small group.

Minute 5+

Go enjoy a snack on us and get ready for a great night!

We start at 6:30pm with about 30 minutes of hang-time. Play games, grab some food at the concession bar, and give yourself a chance to take a breath after the crazy day you’ve likely had. We’ll then step into a large group service with worship, video, teaching, and other fun surprises! After the service, we’ll engage in small group discussions. Small groups are categorized by grade and gender and are facilitated by a trusted adult.

Well, the short answer is no. But we do offer something fantastic for our students on the weekends: our weekend service! We encourage teenagers to attend The Crossing on the weekends with their parents, siblings, and friends. We craft our weekend services for people ages 11 and up.

Registration is not necessary for YouthCrossing, but if you're visiting for the first time, we’d love to know that you’re coming! If you’d like to speed up the process of checking in your first time, fill out the form on this page. We can’t wait to meet you!

The best thing you can do is show up! We encourage students to try YouthCrossing at least 5 consecutive times before they decide if it’s a good fit for them. It’s hard to get to know each other in just two hours! Other ways to connect are by joining a serving team and attending a YC ONE event. (More on these below)

A YC ONE event is when we come together as ONE youth ministry from many campuses. These are our most anticipated events of the year. We host a summer camp, a winter retreat, and other occasional ONE events throughout the year. You can find out more about these at youthcrossing.org.

We’re so glad you asked! First of all, thank you. We are undeniably grateful for our friends and team members at YouthCrossing. We’d love for you to join us! To do that, you can click here and follow the instructions. Should you have any questions or roadblocks along the way, drop us an email at youth@thecrossing.church and we’ll be happy to help!

We sure do! YouthCrossing invites all students in 6th-12th grades to explore God’s truth, experience His grace, and express His love, no matter where they are in their relationship with Jesus.

At YouthCrossing, we believe more than anything that Jesus is our hope. He is the one to cling to through it all. Second, generosity is our joy! There’s nothing greater than doing what Jesus called us to do – giving our time and resources to His people who need it the most. We can say that because people are our passion! Letting God use our gifts to help put this broken world back together, we are servant leaders. And at our core, we are grounded in scripture, using God’s word to guide our lives. In all of this, YouthCrossing exists because we are committed to community. We believe that no one should walk this journey alone, and that life is better when we live it together.

We love talking about YouthCrossing! You can get in touch with us by email at youth@thecrossing.church.
