“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this:  to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”-  James 1:27

The EDUCATE ministry has two key purposes:  

First, to provide ten orphans from developing countries the opportunity to attend The Master’s University, with all the benefits of not only earning a university degree, but also of experiencing the campus community, being part of the Crossroads family, and being exposed to the world outside the student’s home country.

Second, as we seek to have an impact for the kingdom in “… Jerusalem (locally) and in all  Judea and Samaria (regionally) and to the end of the earth (globally)”- Acts 1:8b, we hope and pray that by having a student learn and grow in following Christ through his or her experience at TMU and Crossroads, and then return home to live and work, that each student will be used by the Lord to further His work and kingdom there.
