What Students Say

  • As I do more Crossroads lessons, I learn more about myself and the ways that I need to work on myself — but more importantly I learn more about God and how to allow God to live through me.

    Mark, ON
  • I want to thank my mentors and all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus at Crossroads ministries for all their support and encouragement. The letters sent to me by my mentors inspire me. I believe these studies have truly helped me establish myself in God’s Word and also made me a better person.

    Warren, BC
  • I was blown away to see this questionnaire. Not many people want to help an ex-criminal, but I’ve noticed over the last few months that God truly works in mysterious ways. Thank you for reaching out to me and trying to help a brother in Christ.

    Joel, AB
  • Thank you for teaching me. I know it’s all God that teaches me what I need to learn but you guys definitely help God’s message get to me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am towards God and Crossroads.

    Eric, AB
  • When I came to jail, I hit rock bottom. I was very sad and depressed and full of anxiety. After being in here for about a year, I was introduced to the Crossroads Bible Studies. I became a Christian in jail and it has helped me a lot. I believe God led me to Him.

    Meranda, BC
  • Working on the studies, Great Truths of the Bible and Survey of the Bible, helped me grow spiritually by setting a habit of prayer. It influenced my Christian identity and allowed me to constantly be witnessed by others. The letters and courses coming to me in the mail had other inmates noticing how often I had “outside mail” and how I was always reading in the Bible. God put me in a position of being forced to depend on Him, which I am hugely grateful for – I owe God everything!

    Kyle, AB
  • I now realize that me coming to jail saved my life and I have learnt so much about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Now I have a purpose in my life. I want to help others and bring joy in their lives too and show them how great it is when you trust God in all your affairs.

    Daniel, AB
  • I would like to say thank you very much for everything you have done for me. You have been there for me, for my bible study and just been there for me. Also you have been making my relationship with God much stronger and have given me hope.

    P, Saskatchewan
  • The phrase “being born again” means to me that I am recycled… renewed… reborn… that I got a fresh start… a restart… I am new again… a new you…another shot at life!!!

    Tanner, BC
  • I would like to say thank you very much for taking the time out of your life to pray for me, my family and children. Thank you for sending me lessons to do. I love my studies with Crossroads Ministries and always look forward to do all the lessons.

    Matthew, MB
  • My friend gave me a Manga Messiah lesson after the chaplain gave him 2 of the same lessons. These lessons brought me hope when hope was lost. In my time of sadness, I look forward to doing these lessons. I look at my faith with new eyes. The past is gone and I will not hold on to it — I am moving forward.

    Chris, QC
  • This ministry opens doors to many hearts. Men sit in their cells, around tables, in their houses and even at work, working on these devotions. God’s seeds are being planted. May we see a great harvest for the kingdom of the Lord.

    Terry, SK
  • These courses are great and I am learning a lot about the Bible through the Crossroads studies. Also, thank you for the letters you send me. They truly help and I learn quite a bit from each one.

    John, AB
  • I wanna thank my mentors – past, present and future. I look forward to your uplifting and encouraging words. Tonight, I add you in my prayers. Thanks to a mentor for suggesting the book of Daniel – what an awesome story! Thanks to another mentor for suggesting the book of John – this was my first introduction to the gospels! I suggest it as a starting point to new and developing Christians. I said this once and will say it again – I no longer just read my Bible – it holds a conversation with me. My best friend is the living Word!

    Tyrone, BC
  • Thank you very much for your words of encouragement and insight. You are all doing a terrific job and I thank-you from the bottom of my heart.

    John, ON
  • I cannot say it enough how thankful and grateful I am to have these courses in my life. As I work on turning my life over to God more completely and consistently, I pray that I absorb the Lord’s wisdom and His will!

    Brent, AB
  • Crossroads not only helped Jesus reach me and bring me closer to Him, but their Bible studies, artwork, poems, and mentors all helped bring me peace. Through Christ, with the help of Crossroads, I am a better person and am growing in Christ each day. I love being a Christian and I love my Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you, Crossroads.

    Michael, ON
  • One day I picked up a Bible and started reading. Then I started doing the study courses. I ask God for help every morning, I give Him thanks every night, I help others without looking for anything in return. Life is good!

    Christopher, ON
  • My financée is willing to give her life to Jesus and begin living a happy beautiful life. She’d like to start the Bible study courses. She needs a Bible and everything to begin her studies. Thank you for helping me change my life and now for helping her. And thanks for allowing me to continue my growth and relationship with God.

    Scott, ON
  • Thank you so much for all the awesome classes you have provided for me. God bless.

    Steven, ON
