Christian Cadet Club

Gary Carter, Lead Counselor – Luke 2:52 states that “Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.” The goal of the Calvinist Cadet Corps, based upon that verse, is to help boys to grow spiritually in all areas of life (devotional, mental, physical, and social) by providing Christian men with a uniquely designed structure, program, and materials so that they can mentor boys effectively. We meet every Tuesday night, 7:00pm at Crossroads Ministry Center 495 East 22nd Street, Paterson, NJ


Cheri Jefferson, Lead Counselor – GEMS (Girls Everywhere Meeting the Savior) is a Christian girls’ club, whose mission is to help bring girls into a living, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ, through learning about Jesus Christ, what He has done for us and His plan for each of our lives.
