STUFF | Middle School Ministry
who we are:
We believe that unless the driving force behind a church ministry is biblical, the health and growth of the church will never be what God intended. Strong churches are not built on programs, personalities or gimmicks. They are built on the eternal purposes of God. That is the foundation of our Middle School Ministry, and we would love for you to be a part of what God is doing here!
STUFF SMALL GROUPS: STUFF Small Groups meet Every Wednesday from 5:30pm-7pm at CrossWinds. Small Groups are considered our discipleship time, designed to lead students deeper into God's Word and connect students to each other. Every small group will have multiple leaders to help lead discussions as well as walk alongside life with your student. Small Groups become a unit where students can grow and connect with each other and their leader in deeper conversation and time together.
MONTHLY EVENTS: Every month we offer fun and engaging events for our students. These are ideal to invite friends to. They are relaxed and “no pressure.” Just good clean fun! Our events provide another place for students to build and strengthen community!
what we do:
STUFF ON SUNDAYS: Every Sunday at 10:30am in the Barn Theater, STUFF students meet for their own Sunday experience. This is a dedicated time for the students to experience worship, a message, games, service projects, team competitions, dance parties (we like to dance), and other activities to build their relationship with the leaders and students while growing in our mission to know, love, and reflect Jesus!
MENTORSHIP: Along with Small Groups, we have an exciting new way to get connected. Once the student signs up with a small group, they can also sign up to be mentored by a leader that they meet with monthly. These are one-on-one opportunities to dive a little deeper into scripture or just process life with a leader. The beauty of this, they can happen any time that a student is available and any place (that a parent feels comfortable). This allows students who have full schedules and shifting circumstances the ability to stay plugged into CWS and journey towards Jesus, regardless of what season of life they are in. Mentoring relationships are one of the most significant ways to help students grow spiritually. CrossWinds Students believes mentoring is one of the primary ways God uses people to help others learn, grow, and develop as well as to mold them into the kind of people He created them to be. In a mentoring relationship, the focus is on transparency, self - awareness, biblical principles, application, and intentional feedback.
SUMMER CAMP REGISTRATION: Middle School (STUFF) Summer Camp will be from July 22-28, 2018 at Koinonia conference center in the beautiful Santa Cruz mountains. Please complete a registration form for each student attending. Additionally, two waivers will be required for each student.

Looking to Serve?
Great ministries cannot exist without great adult leaders. Today's students do not connect with programs. They connect with people. The most effective way to impact students is through significant relationships with caring adults. That is why we are ALWAYS looking for men and women who have a deep commitment to Christ and a desire to care for students.
