TEN

TEN is a mission we launched on our ten-year anniversary, when the Crossroads family, by God's grace commits to giving our lives away in three ways: First is by planting ten healthy Bible-teaching churches. Second is to build out and pay off the Valencia Crossroads Main Campus within the next ten years. Last is to identify, select, and financially underwrite the cost to send ten teenage orphans to The Master's University over the next decade. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donate online at lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to TEN are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
