Campus Map

Intersect is a multi-day inter-cultural event, held on the Northern California Campus the first week in November.

Just as the Christian faith intersects the language, location, and cultures of people wherever they are, Christians are called to intersect with people - wherever and whoever they are - sharing the Good News of Jesus.
