The Connections ministry at Crossroads Christian Church is a high-value area that has a unique opportunity to connect people to discipleship opportunities and community. This is a great opportunity for an experienced, passionate and strategic leader to Build and Grow the Small Groups at Crossroads.

Church Description

Crossroads Christian Church is a diverse, multigenerational church that has impacted its region for over 50 years. Pastor Barry Cameron became its fifth pastor in August of 1992 and has since grown the church from about 188 people to 6,400 in weekly attendance. Pastor Cameron is a strong, visionary leader who leads with a transformational leadership style. The team rallies behind that vision and energetically seeks to accomplish it. Crossroads has recently pursued a time of clarifying and refining and has been reorganizing and optimizing their staff structure to prepare them to be a church reaching 10-12,000 people.

Crossroads Christian Church sits debt-free on a beautiful, 150-acre campus in Grand Prairie, Texas (in the Dallas-Fort Worth region). As they continue to build and expand to accommodate growth, Crossroads has never been and will never be about "sticks and stones." Their heart is about “flesh and bones”. They have a passion to see lives changed forever by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Crossroads is a staff-led, elder-protected church. They are an Independent Christian Church.
