Our Go Spotlight this month is John and Ramie Book, who serve on the leadership of Cru Ministry at UCLA. Their mission is to share Christ with the students of UCLA. Their team is also very intentional in making disciples. They also help students lead Bible Study groups all around the UCLA area. Whether on or off campus or in the dorm, the Books are fulfilling the Great Commission by making disciples of the students.
We would like to welcome our new Go Partners, Elijah and Allison Kellogg, along with their daughter Tyler. Elijah and Alli are with OMF/Global Grace Missionaries and will be working in Southeast Asia among a vastly unreached people group called the Shan-Tai. There are nearly 7 million Shan people in existence today, with less than 1% reached for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Elijah and Alli will be living among the Shan, working long-term to make disciples of Jesus and plant house-based churches within the Shan culture and language. Please be in prayer for the Kelloggs in the following ways during their first term on the field:
- Pray for a smooth and fruitful transition into a new language, culture, and home
- Pray for Jesus' love and power to penetrate the hearts of the Shan, who do not know Him
- Pray for God to free the Shan people from their idols, their oppressors and their crippling socioeconomic issues through our work and teaching

Elevate Surf Club: Third Sunday in August, $5 – Surf Club is for students who can surf or who want to learn. We meet outside the church office after the 8:00 a.m. church service. We check the surf report, and then head out to the beach with the gnarliest waves! You need to bring $5, a wet suit, a board, and money for food. If you don’t have a board, we have a few to lend. Surf Club usually returns around 6:30 p.m. Hey parents, we need drivers if you want to join us!
Our Worship Ministry is expanding! We are looking for talented women and men with a strong desire to serve the Lord with their gifts. For info check out the Worship Ministry cart in the lobby, email our Worship Director at gclark@lifeatcrossroads, or visit www.lifeatcrossroads.org/worship.
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. Join us. Together, we can invest in the future today by making your check out to TEN or donating online at lifeatcrossroads.org/give. All contributions to Ten are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
