“We at CROSS believe that God, in his providence and his power, has often and will again use college students to do some of the most world-altering work imaginable.”
— Thabiti Anyabwile
On the evening of February 27th in 2015, tens of thousands of college students in each and every state gathered in dorm rooms, offices, auditoriums, and dining halls to experience the UNDAUNTED live simulcast event. And these gatherings were not just spread across the United States, but across the world as brothers and sisters from Canada, Indonesia, Nigeria, Brazil, India, and other countries joined us online. Pictured above are brothers in Nairobi, Kenya, streaming the CROSS 2015 simulcast.
We began the night by recalling the motivation and the end of missions: joy in Jesus Christ. In sweeping talks, a spoken-word poem, and an in-depth panel discussion featuring Thabiti Anyabwile, Kevin DeYoung, Mack Stiles, David Platt, and John Piper, we considered the reasons why we are undaunted by the darkness — both hostility to Christianity here in America and the reality of unbelief among unreached people groups abroad given the certain victory we have in Jesus, whose ever-expanding gospel kingdom is indomitable.
To close the evening, our brother Matt Boswell led us in singing what has become the anthem of CROSS, “Let the Nations Be Glad!” And that is our prayer, that all peoples would find their unending joy in friendship with Christ. To that end we pleaded with God, and we are pleading still, that he would raise up 1,000 workers from CROSS 2015. Will you join us in praying for workers?
