The CrossGen conference is intentionally cross-generational and is held every year at Spruce Lake. Through engaging speaking sessions, age-specific breakouts, scheduled activities and free time to mingle, CrossGen aims to unite the generations as their paths intersect at the cross of Jesus.
Galen Burkholder, President/CEO of Global Disciples, is passionate about seeing the Body of Christ work together so every person has an opportunity to hear, understand and respond to the Good News of Jesus. Pursuing innovative strategies to multiply disciples of Jesus and mission-minded leaders has captured Galen’s heart. He believes small business, in the way of the Apostle Paul, is a key to successful and locally sustainable, near-culture mission around the world.
Galen began his career doing youth ministry and equipping youth leaders. In 1996, after directing a thriving international discipleship and mission training program with Eastern Mennonite Missions for twelve years, he founded Global Disciples. He has a BA from Bethel College and an MA in Church Planting and Evangelism from Eastern Mennonite Seminary. Galen and his wife, Marie, live in Landisville, PA, USA, and have three adult children and six grandchildren.
