Celtic Cross was created in 1995 and is considered a model for church leadership development programs.

It is designed to challenge students to think theologically about vocation and to consider their call to professional or lay leadership in the church or in the community.

We have many exciting and challenging opportunities planned for our group this year.

Celtic Cross meets monthly for dinner and a workshop lead by an expert in their field. Celtic Cross students plan and lead the annual Youth Day, and participate in a spring retreat. This year’s retreat will include a visit to Washington D.C. to look at interfaith relations and experiences.

Participants in Celtic Cross are also are encouraged to participate in summer work, conferences, spring break/May trips, as well as on-campus activities and international study. Additional opportunities are available to those who volunteer to be part of special teams, which provide leadership for presbytery and congregational events/retreats.

Students who participate actively in Celtic Cross can be sponsored to attend one national church conference per year.
