Above all else CrossRoads Missions is a doorway for churches and individuals seeking ministry opportunities in places they may otherwise have difficulty serving. We accomplish this goal by bringing people of all ages into missions in the United States and foreign fields. These experiences greatly challenge those who participate to consider deeper involvement in ministry in both the world and their own communities. Mission teams who participate with us are involved in multiple areas of ministry including: construction, medical missions, education, discipleship, evangelism, worship, and disaster relief. CrossRoads Missions enhances existing local ministries, supporting them with additional resources they may be unable to provide. Our service achieves its highest level of effectiveness by working alongside these ministries so that when we leave, the ministry of Jesus does not.
