Volunteering for Project One gives you the opportunity to serve your local community in a BIG way. To date, thousands of volunteers have worked on hundreds of projects ranging from yard work to finishing rooms, and everything in between. For every project completed there is at least one person in our community who has experienced the love of Christ through the open hearts and hands of Project One volunteers.
The requirements to volunteer for Project One are simple:
- Be willing and able.
- Be enthusiastic.
- Be a part of the team.
Additionally, you will be required to sign a liability release upon arrival at Crossroads the morning of Project One. The release will be available at Crossroads at that time, or you may download it here to read prior.
Click the “Register” button on the right to sign-up. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here, contact [email protected], or call the Crossroads office at 970.203.9201.
Serve with a Work Crew
Work crews work serve in groups of about 10 ten people and work on projects in the community. Typical projects involve one or more of the following: cleaning, yard work, painting, building, landscaping, etc. The project may be someone’s home, a school, a shelter, a park or any other location. Many of the projects are outside and all require some level of physical work. Special skills are not required to serve on a work crew.
Serve with the Food and Hospitality Crew
The food and hospitality crew works at Crossroads Church. Work includes food preparation, set-up and clean-up for breakfast and dinner the day of Project One. Special skills are not required to serve on the food and hospitality crew.
Additionally, you can be a crew photographer for whichever crew you choose. The only requirements are that you have a digital camera, and we ask that you return to Crossroads by 3:30pm to download your photos for the presentation.
Both options provide an opportunity to be of great service during Project One, and you may choose the one that best fits your ability to serve.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I don’t have construction experience?
Construction experience is not necessary to volunteer on a project work crew. Each crew will have one or two (or more) volunteers working alongside you who have some level of experience with the type of work required for the project.
What if I can’t serve on a work crew because of an injury or disability?
We recommend that you volunteer with the food and hospitality crew at Crossroads.
Can I volunteer on the same crew with my family and/or friends?
Yes! There is a space on the volunteer registration form where you can list the people with whom you would like to volunteer.
Can my child volunteer?
Yes! Minors under the age of 18 may volunteer with a parent or guardian. If a parent or guardian will not be present, the minor is required to bring a signed liability release from the parent or guardian upon arrival the morning of Project One. Download the liability release.
What is the minimum age for a child to volunteer?
As the parent or guardian, you make the decision based on the abilities, energy level and needs of your child. Plan on serving at least 4 hours. (The full work day is around 8 hours, with a break for lunch.) Also, keep in mind that many of the work projects are outside and all require various levels of physical work. You may also consider volunteering with your child on the food and hospitality crew.
What is the $25 donation for, and what if I can’t pay it?
We request a $25 donation for each volunteer to help cover the costs of food and materials that are not donated to Project One. The donation is not required to volunteer, and you may donate more than $25 if you want to do so.
Can I donate to Project One without being a volunteer?
Yes! Visit our Donation page for more information about sponsoring a project or making a donation of money, food and/or materials.
