XCC is a mind, body and soul adventure. A life-changing journey. A challenging endurance hiking event, in the wild, designed to test men’s abilities, find their breaking point and overcome the abyss between the head and the heart.
XCC weekend takes place from a Thursday evening through to Sunday afternoon, where men are confronted with significant physical and emotional challenges, deep camaraderie and profound moments of moral and spiritual input.
With no watches, no phones, no wallets, no car keys, no extra food, no cigarettes, no alcohol, no more crutches, and no more excuses or hiding… XCC men find perspective; evaluate who they are; and find a purpose worth living for.
XCC leads men to the highest place on earth: the foot of the cross… in a way they have never experienced before. To recognise the journey, every man who completes an XCC receives a red polo shirt emblazoned with the number four. He is now a Musketeer – a servant of the King of Kings, Jesus.
