Missions

Jesus makes it clear.
 
We are a 'sent' people, entrusted by God himself with the most important privilege and responsibility human beings have ever known!

John 20:21 "As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 

Matthew 28:19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations...."

Acts 1:8  "You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” 

2 Corinthians 5:19-20 God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ....

The Lord Jesus commissioned his followers to be salt and light, to take the whole gospel to the whole world, and to make disciples of every people group. Through our our own mission initiatives (both local and international), as well as our support for mission ministries in various nations, Crosby Church is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission  as an expression of obedience to the Two Great Commandments to love God with all that we are and to love others in the same way that he loves us.  

Mission Projects

Mexico

In cooperation with YWAM,  a Crosby Church team travels to Ensenada, Mexico each year to build a house for a needy family. This is a longstanding tradition in the church and many of our members have participated in the wonderful experience .  This  annual project is open to anyone 13 and above. Families are welcome!

Guatemala

Activate Youth engages in an annual  week-long outreach to Guatemala almost every summer.  Due to he COVID 19 outbreak, we will not be going this year but are already planning an outreach in 2021.   If you would like to find out more about this project, please contact Pastor Josh Powell or complete and submit the form below.

South African Theological Seminary

As part of our international mission focus, Crosby Church helps support the equipping ministry of South African Theological Seminary (https://www.sats.edu.za/) through Dr. Bert Watson's transformational course on Biblical Leadership.  Dr. Bert and his co-lecturers train about 400 existing and emerging Christian leaders each year. With over 3,000 students from Africa and several other continents, SATS is the largest nonwestern theological seminary in the world.  A fully accredited online institution,  SATS offers focused, high quality training through certificate, bachelor, master, and doctoral  programs.  The seminary's goal is to develop leaders who are Christ-centered, Bible-based, and Spirit-led.

Food for the People Local Outreach

COVID and the related job losses have affected many families in our region. 'Food for the People' is a regional weekly compassion ministry hosted by Crosby Church in cooperation with Covenant with Christ International.  The goal of this ministry is to assist families in a practical way by providing them with wholesome food products on a regular basis. Church staff gather weekly with a wonderful team of volunteers to distribute food boxes to hundreds of appreciative families. 'Food for the People' represents an excellent opportunity to love and serve others in Jesus's name.
