How to study and communicate God’s Word effectively
The Nature and Character of God
Intercession and spiritual warfare
The Holy Spirit
ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM
Each week as a campus we come together corporately to praise and worship God. Monday morning worship, at 8am, and Ohana Gathering at 6pm on Thursdays.
Prayer & Bible study
Prayer and studying the Bible are keys to a relationship with God. We are blessed to have a prayer room open 24/7 and a Bible department as a resources for growing and knowing God.
We desire to know God and to make Him known, and invite others to do the same. The campus library, prayer room, or one of the outdoor tables are some places to spend time alone with God.
Having an international community is a highlight of our campus. Weekend soccer matches, meals in our open air cafeteria, or drinks at The Banyan Tree cafe are ways to meet those around you.
Located in the heart of Kona, our campus has many opportunities to serve those in need around us. Whether serving the homeless or tutoring at a local school, we can share Jesus' love.
Fun & Adventure
The Big Island is beautiful, diverse, and makes weekends perfect for discovering a new beach, exploring Volcano National Park, or taking a tour through one of the many Kona coffee farms.
At the completion of the classroom phase, students have the opportunity to ‘make God known’ in the outreach phase. The Gospel comes alive as students step out in faith to preach the good news, baptize new believers and heal the sick (Mark 16:15-18). Outreach is an exhilarating time of risk and adventure, as teams serve with local believers: transforming lives and impacting society with the love of Jesus Christ.

BEST OUTREACH DEBRIEF EVER!! Seriously think about this: It was held in Herrnhut Germany, the home of the Moravians who held 24/7 prayer for over 100 years. We had 4 days to relax together and hear each other’s stories about our outreaches to India, Israel and Germany. There was plenty of time to worship God and pray together. There was lots of good food. There was plenty of room to…

Our outreach to India was challenging but INCREDIBLE! Working with children in India changes you. They are so open to the things of The Spirit. It gives you hope for the future of India. The heat and challenges of the country quickly fade when you are and see the hunger in the hearts of these little ones to know God. It ruins you for the ordinary!
Our outreach in Israel involved serving in many ways. While some mopped floors others cooked. There were meaningful ministry times that included washing feet and other times that involved picking trash up in the streets. The picking up of trash is something that has become a trademark in the community when Crossroaders are in town. The merchants who used to find it a curiosity in years past are now…
