New Building Flooring Project

Crossroads needs your help at the new building.

This is a great opportunity to build community and get connected. Sign up at www.lifeatcrossroads.info today!

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. 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.
