One of the best ways to connect in a
meaningful way at crossroads|church is to join a Group.
Group Life exists for the expression and reception of love and accountability, as Christ-followers carry out the ministry and vision of the local church.
While corporate worship experiences engage the believer in worship and teaching, Christ-followers give priority to discipleship through relationally connected groups of encouragement, support, and accountability.
Groups fulfill the mission of Crossroads by engaging, equipping, empowering, and encouraging Christ-followers in a daily spiritual walk as the body of Christ.
Some Groups will dig into a passage, a book or letter in the Bible and others will cover subjects relevant to Biblical principles and practices through books or videos.
A Group is a family within the church family that grows in transformed lives as they nurture one another in relationship, challenge one another in "living out" the Word, care for one another's needs, celebrate one another's life moments, and share in one another's burdens.
Groups meet together, sometimes in homes or sometimes at "The Big House" (the Crossroads campus).
Most Groups are intimate in size, 12 to 15 but others are larger and break into smaller Groups for discussion, prayer, accountability, etc.
An IDgroup is an intentional form of discipleship (ID stands for Intentional Discipleship) where a mentor gathers two or three disciples to intentionally pursue transformation through the doctrines and disciplines of God's Word. This structure will look a little less like one mentor and one disciple and a little more like Jesus, Peter, James and John or that of Paul, Barnabas, and Timothy. Knowing that discipleship is not a "one size fits all" process, we have several tools that we recommend for an IDgroup to pursue personal mentoring through a structured study, depending on the spiritual fitness, personality and learning style of the participants in the IDgroup.
"The GOAL? Followers of Jesus who are grounded in The Word, walking in the Spirit, and passionate about reproducing more disciple-makers."
