CRASH Ministries consists of five key elements involved in our student ministry, as well as our Christian lives, each using the letters of CRASH.
C – stands for Choices. In life, we are filled with choices to be made and consequences of those choices to live with. CRASH Ministries exists to encourage students to base their choices in life, both big and small, on the promise of God’s Word and Christ’s Love.
R – stands for Relationships. At Ebenezer Baptist Church, students develop meaningful relationships used to encourage one another in their Christian walk. Along the same lines, CRASH Ministries encourages growth in students’ relationships with Christ and how that relationship can affect the other relationships in the students’ lives.
A – stands for Adventure. Being a part of CRASH Ministries is certainly an adventure! But not only is being a part of this ministry an adventure, living the life God has called you to is most adventurous! The Christian life is not boring, mundane, or impossible; but rather it is a daily journey filled with adventure & suspense, battles & victory, love & freedom, and so much more!!
S – stands for Salvation. The foundation of a relationship with Christ is salvation through Him. CRASH Ministries is all about having a saving relationship with Christ, which is the only way to Heaven. Our salvation is freely given and full of grace. Without salvation, we would not have CRASH, joy, love, or the next letter…
H – stands for Hope. Through Christ, we have a hope that supercedes all other. CRASH Ministries depends heavily on hope. Students know that with Christ, no matter how bleak the present is, an even greater hope exists that gives us a reason to celebrate the love of Christ in our present condition! With hope, we have a future, we have a love, we have a joy, we have an eternity!
