The faculty and administration of Crossroads College are bound by deep personal conviction to be true to the principles and goals of distinctively Christian education. The College champions the lordship of Christ and the authority of the Bible over all of Life. We believe the gospel of Christ and the Church to be the divinely appointed agencies for the evangelization of the world through regeneration by the indwelling Holy Spirit. We believe that it is possible to be alert to changing currents of thought without sacrificing a firm and resolute faith in God's revelation as found in Scripture. We are satisfied to be Christian in all our personal and educational pursuits as God gives us the grace to fulfill that goal.
The faculty and administration are also committed to the Restoration Movement's ideals as these find expression and authority in Scripture. Accordingly, Crossroads College firmly advocates the unity of all believers under the lordship of Christ, the reformation of the Church as it is ideally depicted in Scripture, and the world's evangelization.
The Extension Class Program consists of 16 semester hours of college-level courses taught by qualified staff members of Deaf Missions. These classes are offered during the spring semester. Students selected for the program spend one semester in the Council Bluffs/Omaha area, which is a national center for ministry to the deaf. There they benefit from an intensive, comprehensive curriculum that includes classroom instruction, guest lectures, and field trips. Students also receive on-the-job training through supervised teaching at deaf schools and camps, preparation of Bible visuals for deaf people, and conducting worship services for deaf people in area churches.
Students usually live in a special housing on the campus of Iowa School for the Deaf in Council Bluffs, about two miles from Deaf Missions. They eat in the school cafeteria with deaf students. Classes meet in a classroom provided for Deaf Missions at ISD. Deaf Missions provides transportation for field trips and other group assignments.
