Thank you for your interest in serving with CrossWay Kids!

Our desire is to raise up a generation of children who treasure Christ and are living in joyful obedience to the Savior. The opportunities for serving are varied enough to involve many different people with different gifts. If you love Jesus Christ and have a heart for children, there’s probably a place for you in CrossWay Kids.
