Personal stories that capture the transformative impact of CrossRoad Institute, offering authentic and heartfelt accounts of participants’ experiences, growth, and connections formed through our programs.

This has been the best ten days of my life so far. I have made connections and friendships that will never go away, but more importantly, I have taken my faith into my hands in these past ten days. I believed in God all my life and I grew up in the Orthodox church all my life, but over the past ten days I have developed a personal relationship with God and a fire has been lit within me that was never there before. I want to thank you again so much for helping make the best week and a half of my life possible.
