CrossVenture – On Site

The original CrossVenture program is hosted at a simulated village on the JAARS campus. The village site is called Belisi, a Melanesian Pidgin word that originates in Papua New Guinea and means “peaceful”. Each of our onsite CrossVenture programs provides hammocks for sleeping, mud stoves and cookware for cooking and engages participants in learning and growing in their understanding and commitment to missions.

CrossVenture – Coastal

We have a new ON-THE-WATER CrossVenture program that we now host at the Carolina coast! This new program partners with conference/camp settings like Ft. Caswell. Our Coastal program uses bunk style accommodations for sleeping and meals provided by volunteers. Participants will have hands-on lessons on actual boats and learn how Maritime training relates to missions, while being challenged to be involved in missions themselves.
