Leaders at the crossing church
Leadership Matters to You
You care about leadership when considering a church. You know healthy things have healthy leaders (not perfect ones).
Leaders You Can Relate To
You want leaders you can connect with. The Bible is filled with great leaders who are real people with very real struggles. That’s what you’ll find at The Crossing.
The leaders at The Crossing Church are called elders. It’s the word the Bible uses for “pastors”.
Leaders You Can Look Up To

The elders at The Crossing Church seek to point you to Jesus with their lives and service.
