Jesus is Lord
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 6:23
is the only leadership
"...if it is leadership, let him govern diligently..." - Romans 12:8 "...just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..." - Matthew 20:28
God speaks through His Word
"All scripture is God-breathed and useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." - 2 Timothy 3:16-17
We must each do our part in making disciples all over the world
"...All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age." - Matthew 28:18-20
All people matter
"Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God;..." - 1 Peter 2:10
Worship is for God
"Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." - Colossians 3:16-17
The Holy Spirit leads us,
in our local church and individually
"And they did not do as we expected, but gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with God's will."
- 2 Corinthians 8:5
We have to pray. Without God,
we can do nothing.
"Rejoice always, pray without ceasing..."
- 1 Thessalonians 5:16,17
The Ministry Teams are what guide and carry-out the work of the local church. We do our best to make sure everything CrossRoads is doing falls under the leadership and guidance of a Ministry Team in order to have oversight, accountability and cohesion with the Vision.
Each Ministry Team contains an Elder or Staff Member working along side other members of the Ministry Teams from the church.
Miles and his wife, Jennifer, have been a part of CrossRoads from the very beginning. Miles was a part of the discussions that took place that merged Old Union and Northland to form CrossRoads Christian Church. He has held the position of Worship Minister and Preaching Minister throughout his time at the church.
He has the blessing of his daughter and her family worshipping at CrossRoads along side him, which includes his son-in-law and three grandsons.
Brian is a local boy who grew up in a small town not too far away. After returning to the area and getting married, Brian and his wife, Aubrey, decided to start attending Old Union and became involved. As CrossRoads, Brian became one of the key volunteers for Student Ministries and really felt God calling him to go into ministry full-time. In 2008, Brian accepted the invitation to come on staff, and he has not only seen his ministry grow over that time, but has seen his own family grow as well. He is the proud dad to his family of five children.
Robbie and his wife, Megan, have been a part of CrossRoads since September of 2010. Originally hired as the Associate Pastor, Robbie's role here has continued to morph into the Administrative Pastor role. He oversees our Road Groups Ministry, while also leading in other areas, such as: worship, tech and day-to-day operations.
Robbie and Megan have two children, Ava and Ella, who love coming to CrossRoads, learning about Jesus and spending time with their friends.
Kathy is another one of our staff who was involved before being hired. She has always had a heart for kids, but also had an outside job. When she heard that we were in need of a Children's Director, she was excited about the opportunity, and full of ideas to enhance our children's experience. She has implemented a lot of those ideas, while continuing to build her wish list for the future. The majority of the time, you can find Kathy in our KidZone, but she loves the opportunity to worship with her husband, Tim, as well.
Kathy is the proud mother of three who are all grown up, but she is also a very proud Memaw to some special ones as well.
Without a doubt, at one point in time, our motivation to work revolved around the merger of two congregations and finishing the remodel of a new building. But now we are looking to the future. We are continually looking for God's plan as we move forward as His Church.
We want to reach people with The Gospel message - Jesus Christ, God's son, came to the earth, lived a sinless life and died as the final sacrifice for the sins of the world. He rose from the grave three days later, and we are here to continue telling the world of God's love that sent Jesus for the purpose of reconciling our relationship with the God of the Universe.
