Here is a compilation of testimonials from students, youth ministers, and more!
WHAT DID YOU LEARN AT THE CROSS TRAINING CAMP?
“I learned that God did much more for me than I realized He did. I wanted to quit during the workout today, but He did so much more for me, so I didn’t!”
“How Jesus suffered on the cross. It really surprised me to know that when I was doing the lunges, I didn’t even feel a fraction of the pain he did. He must really love me.”
“Always aim for Heaven rather than temporary pleasure, and I also learned that Jesus has an incredible amount of love for all of us.”
“Jesus endured much more physical & mental pain that any of us felt while doing out workout for 45min. God’s mercy is endless and just because you fail once doesn’t mean you can’t get back up and try again.”
“I learned how to work hard and be grateful for what I have and also to understand other sufferings and to always pray and help them.”
“I learned that God is always with you, especially in your struggles. You just need to accept and acknowledge his presence and talk through with him.”
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT CROSS TRAINING CAMP?
“My favorite part of the camp was the very last workout where we strived and felt the struggle of the person we were sacrificing for.”
“My favorite thing about the camp was learning more about myself and how I act when I reach my limits. When I am at my limits, I am going to think of other people instead of making everything about me.”
“Listening to the different stories and experiences of the leaders. The leaders showed great examples in how to apply these things by showing great determination and focus in everything they do.”
“The training because then I could realize what it was like for Jesus to climb mt. Calvary then die on the cross even though we didn’t do our events to the level Jesus did.”
“I really liked the training sessions that pushed your mentality and forced the 100% effort out of me to show my real potential.”
“I liked how we worked out and learned about God at the same time and how we learned how to use God to help us in sports.”
WHAT YOUTH MINISTERS HAD TO SAY ABOUT CAMP!
“We had Alexandra speak to our parish and youth about Faith and Sports. Her talk was dynamic and extremely inspiring for both our youth and adults! It was wonderful to reinforce that we are all called to be great! Thank you for leaving us all feeling very empowered and filling with the Spirit!”
Laura Selken, Youth and Family Coordinator
“Alexandra & Tyler were excellent speakers for our family formation night. Our families were able to leave with great take-aways about healthy habits and how to orient their lives to be more Christ centered. Alexandra’s stories helped paint a picture in our minds of God’s plan for each of us and how we can become the best He created us to be. Alexandra did a great job in connecting with me beforehand with learning who our audience was and how to best meet them where they are at. We have a large Marching Band population and she did great weaving in the language of music in addition to athletics. I highly recommend Alexandra and Tyler for speaking and cannot wait to invite them back again to speak at our parish.”
