Crosswinds’ Student Ministry and its programs are student-based ministries in Canandaigua, New York and the surrounding region. Our mission is simple, yet focused: Crosswinds’ Student Ministry exists to know God, and make Him known!


Crosswinds’ Student Ministry programs are an exciting and safe place for students to come, be themselves, and grow in their knowledge of who God is. It is as Hebrews 10:25 describes, a place to encourage one another in our faith. So here’s what you can expect weekly when you come.

Our nights begin with plenty of time to hang out with new and old friends. We strive to create a Biblical community, so naturally it is inviting and loving. If you are coming from practice or are just hungry, we encourage you to take advantage of our snack shop. We sell dinner and snacks to satisfy your hunger.

We also like to think we are a pretty fun and occasionally funny. So come ready to laugh and have a good time as we get a chance to connect with one another in some form of game, task or randomness.

When it comes to our faith, we take it seriously.  All are welcomed to join us, as we boldly teach the Bible, the God-breathed Scriptures (2 Timothy 3:16). We are all about the ‘fundamentals’ of growing as a believer in Jesus Christ. We are passionate about encouraging and motivating one another in our pursuit of knowing more about who God is and making Him known. We are really excited about these four things:

  1. Studying God’s Word
  2. Memorizing God’s Word
  3. Talking with God in Prayer
  4. Doing Life Together
