Crossroads is uniquely placed to help churches and their members reach those in prison with the good news of Jesus, through teaching and mentoring, pastoral care, and prayer; as we partner with you to mentor and equip prisoners for a life transformed by and for Jesus.
You can find out more about us here.
Mentors exchange letters with students, mark lessons, provide encouragement to students, and pray for students. Through these exchanges mentors invest in student’s lives as they study God’s Word and apply Biblical truths to their lives.
You can find out more about mentoring, or sign up as a mentor here.
Existing mentors should head over to our Mentor Hub for all mentoring activities.
You can sign them up here.
Every student who is signed up to Crossroads correspondence classes will receive a free NIV Bible with their introductory letter.
You will need to know the student’s name, MIN number and location.
If you are able to partner with us financially, you can sign up to make regular direct debits, or to make a one off donation here.

Important announcement from the Committee
Crossroads has been experiencing an increasingly difficult financial position over the past six months, and unfortunately we now find ourselves in a position where we are no longer able to afford to employ Mike Eastman as our Director.
This has been a difficult decision, made with heavy hearts, as Mike’s leadership has resulted in a number of wonderful initiatives commencing, and sizeable growth in our offshore student numbers.
The Committee wish to place on record our thanks to Mike for his wonderful leadership over the past 20 months, and to make clear that this decision is in no way a reflection on the character or actions of Mike, which have always been above reproach.
God’s work continues though, and our team of volunteers at the office are still hard at work processing lessons, and answering your calls.
We also urgently need funding to continue the work of Crossroads, so if you are able to partner with us and donate additional funds at this time you can do so here.
The Committee have released a letter to our supporters explaining this decision in more detail, and that can be found here.
Thank you for your continuing support in prayer, donations, and through your mentoring of our students.
We trust in God’s sovereignty to continue His work in the prisons throughout Australia and the region.
