Ministry Partner Application
(Please read carefully)
CROSS is a biennial missions conference aimed at 18-25 year olds and their leaders to encourage them in the most loving cause in the universe: bringing people from every tribe, tongue, and nation into the everlasting joy of knowing and worshiping Jesus. Therefore it is our hope to partner with exhibitors, advertisers, and publishers who aim to serve our attendees to this end.
What Is the Application Process?
All organizations desiring to partner with CROSS are required to apply using the application link below. CROSS desires to partner with organizations that support our vision, beliefs, and purpose and therefore each application goes through a careful review process. An application that is not accepted by CROSS should not be received as a rejection of the organization itself; we are simply trying to closely align the goals of CROSS with the goals of partnering organizations.
