CrossConnect is more than a college, it is a discipleship training community made up of followers of Jesus who are committed to the task of developing multiplying disciples of Jesus through all of life. At the heart of CrossConnect are seven vital components that are integrated across the CrossConnect discipleship training community.


Theology is just a great way to “know God” or to “study the Bible”, but it is always a means to greater things.



Becoming more like Christ. This is a journey that is designed to help us to be more like what we want others to be.



Practical ministry doesn’t mean serving in a youth group or preaching these are just tools to help the greater purpose of helping to move people in their discipleship journey.



Life that is lived up close so that we are visible and accessible to one another, so that others can gently peel back the layers and join us in our restoration.



Biblically Discipleship occurs in community. Jesus’ way of discipleship cannot happen in one-on-one meetings alone. The church is Jesus’ body. It has many parts, so it takes many of us committed to each other’s development to become more like Jesus.



The best training for mission happens while on mission people develop practical skills by experiencing them and trying them.



The goal here is to land on a small number of God-given priorities that we see as foundational throughout all of Scripture that can become the foundation for our daily lives.
