Photos from Our 2019 Gala

Photos from our gala in Burlington on November 22nd, 2019.

On November 22nd, Crossroads celebrated 2019 with a gala in Burlington, Ontario and nearly two hundred guests. We were joined by mentors and chaplains, and enjoyed a keynote speech from John Jonathan, a former prisoner and Crossroads graduate. John shared his testimony and how Crossroads impacted his life.

Looking ahead, Crossroads is eager to create an impact in more students like John in 2020. Will you join us? If you are interested in being a part of the radical work that God is doing in prisons across Canada, please consider becoming a mentor or giving a monthly gift to Crossroads.
