Crossroads Students

CSM makes following Jesus a way of life by worshipping, growing, serving, and playing together. We model our programs based on the relational ministry Jesus set for us. We want to connect students to Jesus, our amazing adult volunteers, and each other!

If you have any questions about Student Ministry Programming, email our Student Minister, Michael Nickens at .

Our Student Ministry has many fun events this summer and opportunities for families and students to participate in connect groups! Check them out below



Sunday Mornings

On Sunday mornings, we gather in the Student Ministry building at 9:30. This is a great space for students to own their faith, ask good questions, and learn study skills that carry on past their time in Student Ministry.

We encourage all our students to attend the 11:00 worship hour in the main building.  

Wednesday Evening

Midweek Programming 

Student Ministry's Midweek Programming takes place from 6:30-7:30 on Wednesday nights and consists of a time of worship led by students, a short lesson, and small groups based on age and gender. Our Midweek Programming runs from September to May with a pause in December.

Our Midweek Programming has paused for the summer, but join us on August 28 at 6:30 PM for our Fall Kick-Off to start our Midweek programming and to sign up for the upcoming semester. 


Upcoming Student Events

Other Student Ministry Events

Each January, our Student Ministry goes to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for the Tennessee Christian Teen Convention. This is a conference for Middle & High School students. They learn about Jesus, worship together, and have lots of fun together. Learn more about TCTC here! TCTC

Each summer, the Student Ministry has its own Vacation Bible School called, Student VBS. They spend the afternoon playing fun games all over our campus including Capture The Flag, Slip 'n Slide Kickball, Karaoke, Human Foosball, and more! This event happens before our normal VBS and our students are encouraged and able to attend Student VBS and then serve at VBS.

One of Crossroads' mission partners is Camp ACC in Unicoi. This camp offers a variety of summer camps for students of all ages. Students who are interested in going can apply for a scholarship. Check out more about the camps here. CAMP ACC

Our Student Ministry's annual fundraiser takes place during the Appalachian Fair where they park cars at Whispering Oaks Farm. Students and adults can sign up to serve during the week, and students who serve can earn scholarships towards an upcoming trip such as the Fall Retreat or TCTC.

Each fall, the Student Ministry takes its annual Fall Retreat to Camp ACC. This retreat focuses on learning about God, building relationships with one another, and having fun with some large-scale games. The weekend is capped off with "The Hunt" where students hide and counselors try to find them.
