Twice a week all summer, CROSS Missions brings teenagers to laugh, talk, and serve together at Crisis Assistance Ministry. The groups come from across the Southeast US for the urban immersion experience. Teams spend their days serving in area nonprofits, learn about social justice and systemic barriers in the evening, and reflect on how their faith challenges them to effect change.
For more than a decade, Elevation Outreach has flooded Crisis Assistance Ministry with enthusiastic volunteers willing to go the extra mile. As one of their very first community partners, families served here have continued to witness the joy, selflessness, and deep commitment of these volunteers even as the church’s footprint has grown nationwide. LOVE Week 2021 was no exception.
In their 10th year, Elevation Church brought over 500 volunteers to Crisis Assistance Ministry during LOVE Week. Among them, a teacher who is well acquainted with the struggles of low-income families in Charlotte Mecklenburg.
