CLICK HERE for a word from Austin Duncan about the Tournament
APRIL 27, 2013
The Crossroads Volleyball Tournament is part of Crossroads Ministry’s strategy to build “world Christians.” Our desire is to mobilize college-age students to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ and see His church established in every nation.
With this in mind, the tournament has a two-fold purpose:To raise money for world missions, the proceeds helping to send students on local and international short- term mission trips. The event is meant to be active in evangelism; as volleyball teams are organized, students will try to involve as many non-Christian friends as possible in order to build relationships for the sake of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This tournament is a specially designed marathon in which teams of 6 to 10 people play in a 5-hour long tournament on a Saturday in April. Participants have the option of joining a Competitive or Non-Competitive Team. The event will begin at 10 AM at the Sunset Recreation Center on the UCLA campus. Prior to the event, participants must ask people to sponsor them with flat donations, as each player must raise at least $100 in order to enter the tournament. Prizes will be given to the tournament’s winning teams (Competitive and Non-Competitive).
WAYS TO GET INVOLVED As a Team Captain: Pick up a Captain’s Packet at the Crossroads Connection. Organize a co-ed team consisting of 6-10 people. Turn in your final team list by April 20.
