One of the best ways to connect in a
meaningful way at Crossroads Church is to join a Group.
They honor God's call to participate in Missional Community -- to glorify God and enjoy Him forever, to express and receive love, and to carry out the mission of the church in the community.
While corporate worship experiences engage the believer in worship
and teaching, Christ-followers prioritize mission and discipleship through organic, relationally connected, communities of encouragement, support, and
accountability to live out God's call.
Missional Communities fulfill Crossroads' mission by engaging, equipping, empowering, and encouraging Christ-followers in a daily spiritual walk as the body of Christ - ALL of Christ for ALL of life.
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 Missional Community 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 among their community, care for one another's needs, celebrate one another's life moments, and share in one another's burdens.
Missional Communities meet together, sometimes in homes or sometimes at "The Big House" (the Crossroads campus).
Most Missional Communities are intimate in size, 12 to 15 but others are larger and break into smaller Groups for discussion, prayer, accountability, etc.
Discipleship is 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 in pursuing personal mentoring through a structured study, depending on the spiritual fitness, personality and learning style of the participants in the group.
"The GOAL? Followers of Jesus who are grounded in The Word, walking in the Spirit, and passionate about reproducing more disciple-makers."
