The Elders are always looking to the future to care for Crossroads as we continue to mature as a Church. Over the next months, we will be transitioning from Savia to our permanent location, adding new ministry opportunities. Also, with the news that Steve Stark, our Church Administrator and his wife, Lesly, are looking to retire and relocate to Texas next year, to be closer to their kids, the Elders are in the process of opening an Executive Pastor position. This position will help to carry the ever-increasing leadership load at Crossroads. Pray with the Elders for God to raise up the right man for this critical position at Crossroads. Exciting days are ahead as we follow Him.

Crossroads is excited to present its 2018 missions Go Teams! We hope to send a team of trained men to do construction in Haiti this winter.

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 www.lifeatcrossroads.info. All contributions to Ten are tax-deductible under IRS guidelines.
