Mission & Values

We are a progressive campus ministry and student organization at UW-Madison. Our vision is to nurture a faith community of students that embodies the radical inclusiveness, extravagant welcome and compassionate living we find in the life and teachings of Jesus. As we welcome students of diverse spiritual, religious, and non-religious backgrounds, we strive to create a safe space where students can celebrate life’s greatest joys as well as wrestle honestly and openly with their biggest questions and doubts.


At The Crossing when we say “ALL ARE WELCOME”, we mean it. For real.  The Crossing is a Reconciling in Christ, Open, Welcoming and Affirming ministry.  We celebrate God’s diversity in sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, different abilities, faith tradition or lack of faith, national origin, racial, ethnic and economic background and any other difference.
