Our Purpose

For more information about our history and mission, read: Crossroads Missions, Our 20th Year

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.

CrossRoads Missions is recognized by the I.R.S. as 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  As such, contributions to CrossRoads Missions may be tax deductible.

Beth's family served in Zimbabwe, Africa in the 70's and 80's.   Beth also served with CrossRoads Missions and SVOSH, (Student Volunteers in Optometric Services to Humanity).

Rob's introduction to missions was through multiple short and medium term opportunities in South, Central, and North America. It was through these life changing adventures that he has seen the effectiveness of short-term missions.

In developing CrossRoads Missions, Rob pursued his vision to develop an organization to introduce and sustain youth and adults in meaningful life service through short-term missions.  He is continually developing new opportunities for others to demonstrate what the body of Christ is capable of accomplishing together when we focus on the Cross. His desire is to continue to expand the outreach of CrossRoads Missions and form effective partnerships focused on short term missions with churches across America. 

Our Statement of Faith

Note: every scripture reference has a link that opens a new window where you may read that verse.

Scripture: The Bible is God’s recorded revelation to His people. The Canon of Holy Scripture contains the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments and is the inspired and incarnate Word of God. We believe that all Scripture was designed for our instruction. II Timothy 3:16-17.

The Trinity: There is only one eternal, almighty, and perfectGod. Within the Being of God exists three eternally distinct andcoequal Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. These three Persons are the one true God. Matthew 3:16-17

  • God the Father: Creator and Sustainer of the universe. He is all loving, knowing, powerful, and present. Genesis 1:1, Ephesians 4:6.
  • God the Son: Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who took upon Himself human flesh through the miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit in the womb of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless human life, willingly took upon Himself all of our sins, died and physically rose again. He is our Redeemer and sits at the right hand of the Father as our advocate and mediator. He will return visibly to the earth as King of kings and will judge every human being. John 1:1-3, John 1:14a, Isaiah 9:6, Hebrews 4:14-15, Matthew 25:31-34, Matthew 25:41, Matthew 25:46.
