DOING LIFE. TOGETHER.

At Cross Point, sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the world is one of our top priorities. Cross Point supports missionaries across the world, as well as in the States, with financial assistance, prayer, and encouragement. With God's provision, we support mission points in Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, India, Kenya, Mexico, New York, the South Pacific, Tanzania, Vietnam, and Zimbabwe. We support members who go on short-term mission trips as well because we believe that sharing the Gospel is not only the church's mission, but also can be an individual's mission, too. Cross Point has an annual Family Mission Trip to Antigua and Barbuda, where the Gospel is shared through Vacation Bible School and a soccer camp. This Family Mission Trip is a good way for families to do mission work together. Our CAMPUS and youth ministries also organize periodic mission trip to various parts of the country and the world.
