The role: The Spiritual Growth Pastor is responsible for helping people at Crossroads get connected into relational discipleship environments where they can experience the abundant life found in Christ.


Meet Crossroads Church: 

We exist to help people experience the abundant life found in Jesus Christ. Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly." – John 10:10

Jesus tells us that there are three relationships that have to be in balance for life to work. God is the one who always comes first. He gives meaning and direction to the other two relational circles - loving self and loving others. The key to the truly abundant life is relying on Jesus to balance all three of our relational circles. When we learn from Him how to grow and live life in balance, we can enjoy the rich and satisfying life we long for. And we understand how every single aspect of life - our relationships, our work, our wealth, our family and our mission in life is for the purpose of showing how amazing and wonderful He is. At Crossroads Church, we are committed to helping every person experience the full and satisfying life God has created us to live.
