The Crossover Agenda
The Crossover Agenda Vision: An agenda to provide a short term, crossover experience and equipping of those who are seeking the Lord and His glory, and possibly being a missionary to a foreign country. -Luke 8:22
Did you just graduate from high school? Are you currently enrolled in college? Do you ever wonder what it would be like to crossover into a foreign country?
Have you been on a 7-10 day mission trip but wanted to stay longer?
Do you ever wonder if God is calling you or your family to be a missionary outside the United States?
Would you like to go on a vacation with a purpose?
No matter what age you are, here are some encouragements to consider:
The national language of Belize is English.
Not dependent upon someone setting up a team from a church, any individual or married couple depending on availability can have this experience.
Immersion into a tropical climate, which may include finding a tarantula, scorpion or termite in your bungalow.
Living in the middle of the lush jungle of Belize. Grocery shopping and other shops are 9 miles away from Crossover. You will use the local transportation system to Punta Gorda and local villages.
Interaction with the indigenous people both children and adults. The agenda will include having local dishes at families homes and learning about their cultures and customs. ( Maya, Kektchi, East Indian, Garifuna, Creole) (John 4:40)
The agenda will include a Culture Matters class.
You will see that it is about relationships and not tasks. (John 4:4)
You will learn to be flexible and uncomfortable. (Acts 28:2)
The agenda will be woven to your gifts or abilities.
Depending on your gifts, we provide opportunities to serve at a primary christian school from grades Pre-k to 8th grade, maintaining the property and work projects, teaching and studying Gods' word with staff and children, and visiting local churches.
We also are available for those that need some quiet time with the Lord with no agenda.
We offer this experience from 7- 30 days, which does not conflict with the Laws of Belize.
No extra immunizations needed, and Malaria and Dengue Fever are very rare.
Access to internet during school hours and phones readily available.
Belize is on Central Time half of the year and the other half is Rocky Mountain Time.
Missionary family that has lived in Belize for 6 years will oversee your stay and communicate with your pastor and family. The missionary family receives no funds that go to Crossover.
A non-denominational ministry whose supreme desire is that God is glorified and he is made known to all nations.
