What is Cross Link?
Cross Link is a vehicle by which evangelism happens. The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs / Chartered Community Centers of North and South Carolina believes that by working together, every individual that enters their facilities have the opportunity to have a personal relationship with Christ. Through the implementation of the Cross-Link program, each participant has the opportunity to understand biblical principles, build skills that will enhance their overall learning ability, and form values and attitudes of faith, culture, and the world today.
Integration of Cross Link: What does it look like?
Cross Link is a partnership between Corps & Clubs/Centers working together in an effort to advance the Evangelical Mission of The Salvation Army. This is accomplished by strengthening the Spiritual Emphasis of the Boys & Girls Club programs based on the Army’s mission through the Corps and Club working together programmatically and missionally. Additionally, successful integration of Cross Link happens through the collaboration of both the advisory board and advisory councils, and the combined efforts of Corps and Club staff and members understanding the Army’s mission.
Effective Cross Link Integration: Why we do it?
· Teaches children about God - The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs/Centers must take the lead to build upon the different learning stages, with language, content and activities written with the needs of each child in mind when it comes to teaching children about God.
· Builds community – by increasing communication we create an environment where youth and leadership can work in unison toward goals.
· Enhancement of Corps and Club programming – through spiritual emphasis by Corps leadership in the club and sharing in activities together, both Corps and club programs are enriched.
· Creates new leadership – i.e. future local officers, Salvation Army Officers, and future employees.
