Sharon Cook

Executive Director

What is Sharon's favorite thing about Crossways?
"The best way to experience the tangible love and grace of God, for me, has always been camp. I love that at Crossways, regardless of how old you are or how long you stay, you have a chance to be part of embodying the very Kingdom of God -- not in some distant time or place, but right here and right now. That kind of experience has the power to change you (and through you, the world)."

Business and Human Resources Manager

What is Lisa's favorite thing about Crossways?
"My favorite thing about Crossways Camping Ministries is that it provides an opportunity for kids and adults to experience connections they might not otherwise have in their day-to-day lives. The outdoor setting gives kids a greater appreciation for the environment, and in a time when many kids are struggling with a sense of self and how they fit into a bigger meaning, Crossways provides a safe way for them to explore their spirituality.​"

"I've been attending Crossways camps since I was little and I was lucky enough to work on summer staff for 3 years in college. I was drawn back to Crossways because of the community that is built here. No matter how much time you spend away from camp there is always a community waiting for you, welcoming you home. That's what I like most about Crossways."
