About CROSS Missions
"Youth experience up to eight different urban ministries. Ministry sites include serving people who are hungry, homeless, elderly, and disabled, as well as children. There are opportunities for both direct service and building relationships. CROSS interns accompany groups to facilitate the experience.
On Monday-Thursday, your group will work with two ministry sites each day, with a break for lunch at a local park in between sites. Each morning starts with breakfast, followed by worship and devotion, and every afternoon leaves time for your group to debrief with CROSS staff, discussing what your group learned and where your group saw God each day. Monday and Tuesday evenings, groups dive deeper into social justice issues during a staff-led program. Wednesday evenings are free evenings – your group may stay on campus, or leave MPPC for a few hours to explore Charlotte. On Thursday evening, your group will be invited to share what you have learned all week during a closing worship service. The week ends on Friday morning with a hot breakfast and a slideshow of photos taken during the week."
