Crossroads Church seeks to assimilate each and every person into personal involvement in our church. The Directional Team and their wives, composed of both staff and marketplace leadership, oversee the church by charting and maintaining our vision and by shepherding our people at large. Our Ministry Teams oversee our facilities, finances and mercy ministries. Our Directional Pastor oversees the general direction of the Staff Team. And the Staff Team, pictured at right, directs our three ministry environments (Gatherings, Life Groups and Discipleship) while also assimilating and equipping volunteer leaders to lead the various environment groups.
The scriptures give clear guidelines to the leadership structure of the church and to the qualifications for leadership. The biblical structure of leadership has Jesus as the head of His church and then called and qualified leaders overseeing the mission and vision of the church and equipping the Body for works of ministry at home, in the church and in the world (Ephesians 4:11‐16).
Directional Team Consists of men who meet the biblical qualifications to serve as an elder, who have exhibited faithful spiritual leadership and have a calling on their life to serve the church in this capacity. If an elder is married, his spouse serves with him in leading, teaching, equipping and empowering the church family as a whole. The Directional Team is responsible to faithfully and lovingly steward the Doctrine, Direction and Discipline of the church (1 Timothy 3:1‐7; Titus 1:5‐9; Acts 20:28).
Staff Team Consists of men and women who are paid employees of the church who meet the general biblical qualifications for leadership and who have a calling on their life to serve the church in this capacity. The Staff works alongside the Directional and Ministry Teams to facilitate all the different ministries of the church (1 Timothy 3:8‐13; Acts 6:1‐6).
Consists of men and women who meet the general qualifications of biblical leadership and who have a calling on their life to serve the church in a specific ministry area (1 Timothy 3:8-13; Acts 6:1-6). We are always open to add new ministries as people are called to lead them.
