Crossing Borders is not a recreation-based camp. Although we’ll enjoy some opportunities to have fun and build teamwork, be prepared for this to be a “working camp.” We are at camp to minister to others—not to focus on ourselves. We’ll have chapel services, private and group devotionals, small group discussions, evangelism teaching sessions and role-playing. We’ll build the attendee’s awareness of his/her personal Christian testimony and we’ll explore such tools as drama, public speaking, music, puppetry, clowning, social service and other means to reach out to other-culture nonbelievers with the Gospel and to strengthen the walk of believers.
Crossing Borders attendees will take what we learn and apply it daily in a variety of hands-on ways across the border in Mexico. As missionaries, we’ll involve ourselves in various service projects (such as assisting at a children’s home or helping construct a church building), local church services, ministry in a city park, outreach music concerts, food distribution, tract dissemination, one-on-one discussion with the nationals, and other appropriate outreach activities. Every day will be different and special.
