Our GO Spotlight this month is John and Ramie Book, who serve on the leadership of the Cru Ministry at UCLA. Their mission is to share Christ with the students of the university. Their team is also very intentional in making disciples, and helping students lead Bible study groups all around the UCLA area. Whether on the campus, in the dorm, or in housing out in town, the Books are fulfilling the Great Commission by making disciples of the students of UCLA.


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 seven 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.

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