Crossroads began in 1995 when Gardner-Webb alumnus and renowned evangelist Clayton King (’95) answered what he calls “a God-given, lifelong vision for me to do a summer camp ministry.” Since then, more than 40,000 students have experienced Christ’s love and grace through Crossroads summer camps.  This year’s theme, “The Dwelling Place,” includes nightly worship services open to the community held Monday through Thursday at 7 p.m. until July 26.  Further details about the ministry and future events are available online at A video about this year’s camp is viewable here.
