Kauai Bible College has the unique opportunity to work alongside our church family, Crossroads Christian Fellowship. Our intentions behind this unison are that the students will be able to grow in relationships with the church members as well as serving in a community that stretches them out of their comfort zone. Many students that have come through KBC have had the pleasure of working and serving in the church, whether that is in the Children’s Ministries, Worship Team, or other areas.
Help is always encouraged and needed throughout the church, but CCF has a special emphasis on impacting the keiki (kids) here on the island and in our church ohana. Students have the opportunity to volunteer their time and effort to impact the children’s lives each Sunday. Depending on their availability, they are welcome to serve each week, once a month, or whenever needed.* If you have any questions about volunteering, please call (808)-821-2228.
Crossroads Christian Fellowship participates in junior high/high school youth group every Friday evening from 5-7pm, and is always looking for volunteers. If a student loves hanging out and having fun with this age group, he/she is welcome to help out.
*All KBC and CCF members who are interested in volunteering with the children’s ministry are required to go through a background check, as well as an application that will be processed through our Children’s Ministries Coordinator, Rae Nam.
Many students that come to KBC are given the opportunity to participate with the worship team for our weekend services. If a student has been given a gift for singing or playing an instrument, they may have the privilege of joining the worship team for weekend services. All students interested in volunteering for this team need to contact the worship leader, Tyler Carvahlo, and fill out a ministry application. You may contact Tyler by contacting the church at (808)821-228 for further questions.
At Crossroads Christian Fellowship, we have embraced Jesus’ call for us to love God and to love others— loving unbelievers into God’s Ohana and loving our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ! As a spiritual family, we recognize that everyone has different giftings, and are at various stages of growth. Yet, we all share common needs: growth in Christ, fellowship with others, and encouragement. This is why we participate in small Bible studies throughout the week. Students are highly encouraged to join in this fellowship, whether that is the men’s group (Mon and Thurs night), women’s group (Mon and Fri nights), or our monthly homeschool ministries. None of these are required, yet they are encouraged so that students may get connected with families who are all striving for the same goal: to know God more intimately.
Throughout the semester, students are required to participate with the church in what KBC calls “church chores.” The heart behind these chores is to engrain in the students a new mindset of serving the church. Our church ohana pours much of their time and effort into the college, so in return, our college gives back. These chores are a part of our Spiritual Disciplines class, which is mandatory. The church chores include the following:
-Wiping down chairs
-Helping with food prep
-Bookstore set up
