Crosspoint World Engagement
3/12/20 Update for upcoming short-term mission trip members:
Thank you for your willingness to partner with us in ministry. We know that it is a difficult road preparing for a trip by raising support and often walking through spiritual warfare. James addressed the church as a whole yesterday and was able to speak to what we are doing to keep you safe in our church building. While we feel like it is safe for families to attend church at Crosspoint, we understand that international or domestic travel may have different challenges that can influence whether or not we are able to go on trips. With that in mind, we are continually monitoring the travel situation.
Based off daily conversations that we are having with the CDC, we are not canceling any of our trips at this time. However, we will continue to monitor travel conditions and will update all of you immediately if anything changes.
If you have further questions or concerns, please feel free to call the church and ask for Matt Warren. Thank you again for your desire to see the Gospel transform our world! Please pray that God would allow us to continue to engage in direct ministry with our partner nations and that he would not allow a spirit of fear to infect our teams and our church (2 Timothy 1:7) but that we would walk in boldness, confident of his love and his sovereignty.
Jesus tells us as His followers to "Go into all the world and to proclaim the Gospel to the whole of creation."
It is because of this call, Crosspoint endeavors to take the gospel to the nations through short term mission trips throughout the year. Below you will find information about the countries we visit and how we are engaged in gospel outreach and service.
One of the easiest ways for you to make a tangible impact with missions is by purchasing a coffee beverage from our on-site coffee bar at either of our locations. All of the proceeds from our coffee bar go to fund the drilling of water wells in Burkina Faso.
Short-Term Mission Trips
Each year, we offer opportunities to go to the following countries for short-term missions. When trips are open for signups, links will be listed on this page under 'Upcoming Trips'.
Burkina Faso is the 3rd poorest nation in the world.
It is landlocked with few natural resources and its population is mostly Animistic or Islamic. We have adopted one of the many people groups, the Djan, who are almost completely unreached, and we are devoted to bringing the Gospel to them. To accomplish this goal we partner with Engage Burkina to plant and build churches, drill fresh water wells, invest in orphans and widows, supply the handicapped with mobility and food, teach English and visit Compassion International sites.
Crosspoint partners with Food for the Hungry to invest in some of the poorest neighborhoods in Alegria, Bolivia.
We build subsistence farms for widows, engage in children’s programming, assist with vaccinations and deworming campaigns, invest in local pastors and teach skills that will help these poor communities to become economically self-sufficient.
Crosspoint partners with The Heralds Trust in Edinburgh, Scotland to reach people with the Gospel
We engage in evangelistic outreach in and around the city. We also have the opportunity to help support and assist Crosspoint Community Church, a new church plant that is working to reach people in the Livingston community.
Crosspoint partners with Hope of Life in Guatemala to reach people with the Gospel
In Guatemala, we partner with the organization Hope of Life who serves almost 4 million people a year in Guatemala through medical programs, investment in special needs seniors and children, orphan rescue programs, church planting, complete community economic transformation in villages and much much more.
