Crosspoint was planted 15 years ago in 2006 and began as a portable church first meeting in a high school. After seven years of being portable, Crosspoint purchased and moved to a 10 acre campus. Through consistent and steady growth over the years we expanded our campus by building a brand new 18,000+ square foot Worship Center with children's ministry space in 2019 and converted existing space to offices and student ministry. Our mission has always remained the same to connect people to Christ and community. We want to make disciples who make disciples. The three things that are most important to us are providing an engaging weekend worship experience where everyone is welcome, connecting people in Life Groups (groups of 8-12 people) and loving our city by serving and meeting their needs.
Crosspoint is a growing and healthy church, located in one of the fastest growing cities in America. Our staff team is comprised of several leaders who have been with Crosspoint for 8 or more years. We have very little turnover. We have a thriving Children's and Student Ministry and a high percentage of our church family are connected in a Life Group that meets weekly. We are financially strong and well positioned for the future. In spite of the pandemic, Crosspoint has remained strong and in person attendance has bounced back quickly.
Connect people to Christ and community.
Value 1 – The Bible is our authority for life.
God has spoken to us through the Bible and we recognize it as the final authority for our lives.
Value 2 – Life happens best in authentic community.
Accountability, belonging, care and spiritual growth happen best with relationally-connected believers.
Value 3 – Pointing people to Jesus should be a daily habit.
Our primary mission in life is to point people to Jesus. We do this by building relationships and speaking the language of our culture.
Value 4 – Christ followers use their gifts to serve our community and each other.
Every believer has been gifted by the Holy Spirit. God intends for us to use those gifts to serve our community and the church.
Value 5 – God desires an intimate, growing relationship with each of us.
Study, worship, prayer and other disciplines bring us closer to God and should be nurtured habits.
Value 6 – God’s grace is extended freely.
God extends grace to all of us and we’re compelled to do the same for others.
Value 7 – We follow a big God.
We believe in God’s power to do incredible things in people’s lives.
Crosspoint is committed to a simple church model of focusing on three primary areas and doing them with excellence:
1. Weekend worship gatherings
2. Connecting people in Life Groups.
3. Serving our community.
...that Jesus Christ is the one and only Son of God who died for our sins and rose from the dead. (I Corinthians 15:1-8)
...that the bible is the inspired Word of God — a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path. (2 Timothy 3:16)
...that every person has worth as a creation of God, but that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
...that forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life are available to those who trust Christ as Savior and Lord. (John 3:16)
...that those accepting Christ should repent of sin, confess their faith and be baptized into Him. (Romans 10:9, Acts 2:38)
...that the church is the body of Christ on earth, empowered by the Holy Spirit and exists to save the lost and edify the saved. (Ephesians 4:1-16)
...that Jesus Christ will one day return to earth and reign forever as the King of kings and Lord of lords. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

“We exist to help 6th-12th grade students become followers of Jesus. We want them to know Jesus and join Him on His mission to share God's love with the world.
We are committed to what God is doing in the lives of students at Crosspoint. There are a variety of volunteer roles at CPSM and we would love for you to join us.”
Each quarter CPSM meets for a combined large group gathering focused on creating an exciting place for students to bring friends to enjoy food, games, worship, and a message.
CPSM’s high-energy Middle School Ministry meets on Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:00 and is specifically designed for middle school students. The middle school students are engaged through high-energy games and lessons that focus on their specific needs. The middle school students also meet in Life Groups every Tuesday night to break down the lesson and apply it to their lives.
CPSM’s high-impact High School Ministry meets on Sunday nights from 6:30-8:30. Students will be challenged to take ownership of their faith through teaching, worship and Life Groups. The Life Groups are broken up by age and gender and challenge students to own the lesson and apply it to their lives.
The highlight of the summer is CPSM’s summer camp. CPSM puts a lot of time and energy into running their own camp each year. These camps are filled with high energy games, guest worship teams and a great deal of focus on small groups. Lead Pastor Jeff has a tradition of speaking one night of the week, and Matt speaks the other nights.
CPSM holds a high view of baptism and provides opportunities for students to be baptised at camp, during Sunday services and a few times throughout the year. It will be important that this new leader continues to teach and emphasize baptism as a “First Step” of a new believers walk.
At the start of each new school year, CPSM does a six week small groups war. Each week the small groups are given games and challenges that they must complete and compete against the other groups for points. At the end of the six weeks, the group with the most points gets to choose the room that they will meet in for that school year. The highlight of Small Groups War is the final night's Lip Sync Battle.
Historically CPSM has taken their high school group to Honduras every other year. Crosspoint has been helping a local church plant for the last 5 years in Honduras. These trips are filled with students helping with kids ministry, service projects and leading church services.
A central focus for this new leader will be to continue to grow the student leadership teams. The student leadership teams run the services; games, worship, greeting, media, etc. This gives students ownership of their ministry and allows the adults to be focused on connecting with the students.
Each year the student ministries will hire a couple college age students to come in and intern for 15-30 hours a week to help run the ministry. Many of these are former students who have a heart to learn, invest and to be trained for ministry
