College  

 

Our College ministry at Crosspoint Church seeks to make disciples of all people for God’s glory. We aim to accomplished through connecting students in the surrounding area to the local church to be trained and mobilized for as lifetime disciple makers. We are comprised of students from Clemson University, Southern Wesleyan University, and Tri-County Technical College. We gather together for corporate worship on Sunday mornings, we meet regularly in Small Groups, we train through EQUIP Classes, and we advance the Gospel by sending students out on mission.

Our hope is to see college students become involved in community within the local church through Small Groups and discipleship. We desire that students would move through the membership process as we have a unique associate membership designed specifically for college students who desire to keep their membership at their home church while also being shepherded during the school year at Crosspoint. Then, as a member, we desire to see college students deepen their involvement in the church through serving regularly in one or several of our ministry areas.

SMALL GROUPS

At Crosspoint, we believe fellowship encourages growth. One of Crosspoint’s avenue to pursue growth together is through Small Groups. Small Groups build gospel-centered community, Biblical fellowship, and is where you can find deep and meaningful relationships.

 

MISSIONS

At Crosspoint we believe that sending advances the gospel. Matthew 28:18-19 states,  “And Jesus came and said to them, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.’” We desire as a church to live out the mission that Christ has commanded in Matthew. We carry out this mission by equipping students to share the gospel and providing them opportunities to be obedient and go. These are opportunities include local, national, and international locations.

Weekly Evangelism

During each week our students meet together on Clemson’s campus to pray and go out two by two and share the gospel with other students on campus. We schedule two times during the week for On-Campus evangelism in hopes to provide a time slot that our students can participate in. The Lord has used our faithfulness in allowing us to have over 3,000 gospel-centered conversations per year; and we dream to see that number increase with each new school year.

We also have summer and yearlong mission opportunities through Generation LINK. Generation LINK offers two tracks: The Summer LINK track provides 6-10 week missions opportunities at our national and international Generation LINK locations. The Residency track provides yearlong internship opportunities at our national and international Generation LINK locations.

GRAD STUDENTS & YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

If you are a grad student or young professional living in the Clemson area, we would love for you to find meaningful community at Crosspoint. This is a growing demographic of our church and we’ve seen great fruit from grads and young professionals growing in Christ, developing deep relationships together, serving meaningfully at Crosspoint, and reaching the lost in our community. Our grads and young professionals frequently gather together for socials and outreaches.

 

Small Groups

We would love for you to find community in one of our two Grad/Young Professional Small Groups this year or one of our multi-generational groups. Please check out our Small Group page if you are interested in getting connected!
