Crossroads Community Baptist Church is seeking a missionary (or missionary couple) to serve in existing ministries and new ministries. Crossroads Community launched in 2010 as a church plant designed to meet spiritual needs while addressing physical struggles. As a faith family, we are striving to continue to grow in our spiritual walk with God as we reach out to world. We are seeking:
1. Discipleship lifestyle - Individuals willing to invest in real life ministry opportunities. Many people connecting with the ministry at Crossroads Community either personally struggle or family struggle with addictions. A willingness to walk through addictions and the victims of addictions. Live life in community. We strive to build relationships with those living in our community. This is an important dynamic to reaching out in our area. Ministry involvement include assisting at The Lord’s Café (free restaurant ministry); children’s ministry (after school tutoring and summer day camps); construction over sight; outreach event assistance; operations The Light Community (new ministry to homeless); assisting with continual Bible study and worship. Mission teams partner with Crossroads throughout the year. This provides an opportunity to help assist the teams on-site. In addition to logistical help, missionaries actively live out a lifestyle of missions.
2. Construction Overseer - Seeking an individual to help oversee the construction of The Light Community. The plan is to build twenty tiny homes, walking paths, prayer gardens, crafting center, blacksmithing center, community kitchen, laundry facility, and other common community areas. The property is being developed into a self-contained community on 13 acres of land. A construction oversee is needed to communicate with mission teams coming to build as well as communicate with local licensed contractors and inspectors
Crossroads Community Baptist Church was started as a church plant in the home of the pastor. Since the start, three ministry centers have been developed. The Lord’s Café is a free restaurant ministry to provide hot meals and groceries. At this property, clothing is given away frequently. A mini hair salon provides a place for skill volunteers to cut hair and do nails as they share the gospel. In addition, two ministry closets are maintained to meet the needs of babies and home bound in the area.
The Learning Center provides a place to worship. In this facility, mission teams are provided a place to stay (the building can accommodate 72 volunteers). We also use the facility for the ongoing year-round children’s outreach and community events.
The Light Community is in the startup stage. This community will address the need for housing for individuals in our area who need a place to land and get traction to move forward. The community will be a safe haven for those dealing with major life issues.
