We are designed with purpose: to be in relationship with God first and foremost, and secondly to be in relationship with others. That's why our mission at Crossroads is Making Disciples One Heart At A Time.

You may wonder what that looks like for you in a practical sense, so we put our mission into action in the following approach:

One-on-Many (Corporate Worship)

One-on-Some (Life Groups)

One-on-One (D-Groups)

We envision changing our world one heart at a time by building caring, intentional relationships inside and outside the church with the hope of gaining the opportunity to disciple and be discipled in Christ.

One-On-Many » One-On-Some » One-On-One

Jesus was divine, and so were the methods He modeled for us in making disciples. The Bible records that Jesus ministered to 3 distinct groups: large groups, small groups, and a group of four (Jesus, Peter, James, and John). Because we see Jesus ministering in these three environments, it is our deep conviction that we, too, should strive to emulate that model in our churches.

One-On-Many

Jesus' large group ministry consisted of speaking to crowds as recorded in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and the multitudes of 5,000 and 4,000 who were fed on the hillside. Additionally, a group of 120 believers claimed allegiance to Jesus after his death (Acts 1), and we know of seventy-two whom were sent out during His earthly ministry (Luke 10).

One-On-Some

Jesus called a group of twelve men to leave their families, friends, and careers to follow him. Subsequently, he invested the remainder of his ministry mentoring this group of twelve disciples. Jesus spent 90% of His ministry investing in twelve men.

One-On-One

From the twelve, He invested more closely into three. Jesus consistently took three disciples with him for intensive times of equipping: Peter, James, and John (Mark 3:16, 17; Luke 6:14). All three of them were fishermen (Luke 5:10). All three appear together 5 times in the Gospels.
