Young Adults Care Group (Part 2)
Lead by Quay and Shannon Hanna
Crossway’s other Young Adult Care Group is led by Quay and Shannon Hanna. This is notoriously the “wild and crazy” young adult group, which makes sense if you’ve ever experienced Quay’s exuberance and passion. Perhaps they are only appropriately mirroring their leadership. In fact, when asked what describes the “flavor” of their group, they responded: Wild Berry/Apple. The wild berry aspect of the group is enthusiastic and funny, while the apple represents a core of young people who are solid and hardy.
This group is also made up entirely of single adults who range in age from 18 to 25, including Joshua Cranmer who is both the funniest thing that has ever happened to this group and their most unique aspect. Besides the presence of Joshua, the group is also distinctly defined by the amount of talented musicians they have in their midst and the fact that, between the two young adult groups, they apparently have the most Mac users (something that, it seems, deserves great bragging rights). It’s also worth mentioning that the group has a deep respect for the fact that their leader fancies Monster Trucks.
The care group wants to recognize Quay & Shannon by noting that this couple serves and care for them generously. In sharing their sentiments about their leaders they said that Quay and Shannon “excel in qualities such as hospitality, joy, care, humility, insight, leadership, and humor.” Each individual feels honored to be part of this group.
When everyone is present there are 32 young people, 2 leaders and their two young children-, and they all gather together in Quay and Shannon’s home. This can make for cramped quarters, so on occasion they have been forced to meet outdoors even in coolest of temperatures. They don’t mind where they meet, as long as they have some amazing snacks and deep fellowship with one another. Both seem to always be present.
