Meet Stafford Crossing Community Church:

In 2002, Darryl Mosley felt called to plant a church with a vision to reach the spiritually lost and spiritually hungry in the southern part of Stafford County, VA. Five other families joined in the vision with Darryl Mosley, and seven months later in September, Stafford Crossing Community Church held its first official service at a local high school. They met at the high school until they moved to their permanent facility in 2012. From those humble beginnings, Stafford Crossing Community Church has become a vibrant and growing ministry with over 700 people attending worship services each week.  

As Darryl said, “We are a grace-based, ‘no perfect people allowed,’ kind of church. We want to be a safe place to deal with real life.” With a commitment to practical biblical teaching, an outward missional focus, and authenticity, Stafford Crossing Community Church is poised for growth in the coming years.
