Wide Open, the outdoor ministry of Crossroads Church in Concord, challenges youth and adults to venture outside, away from distractions, and into an environment that facilitates connection with God.
Wide Open offers outdoor adventure opportunities including rock climbing/rappelling, hiking, kayaking and canoeing to youth groups, community groups and many other organizations. This summer, Wide Open will partner with Capstone Climbing & Adventure to provide a series of affordable summer camps to local community youth. The outdoor ministry at Crossroads has served as a unique team-building activity, an innovative tool for teaching spiritual truths as well as an exciting outing for young people. "Outdoor ministry has been a valuable and rewarding learning experience for my son," said Brenda Bridges. "It has increased his faith and his self-confidence."
