International Missions

As we experience the goodness and love of God, we follow Christ's example by serving others and bringing the gospel--through our words and our actions--to people around the world.

Areas of Outreach

We have come alongside a ministry in Dublin that works to create community, preach the gospel, and love people practically among lower income families in the inner city. We also send short-term teams to help run family camps and youth camps.

We support missionaries in Burundi who use their specialized skills in agriculture, sustainable technology, and education to support and grow local communities that are still reeling from ethnic-based civil war.

Over the past 20 years Crossroads has worked to establish and support a Bible school that is training leaders from all over West Africa. We also send short-term evangelistic teams to support existing church ministries in the area.

We work with a local ministry that provides a home for orphans, training for pastors, and outreaches to the Hindu community. Having planted 2 churches and provided free healthcare clinics for 6,000 patients at every trip over the past 10 years, we continue to send teams to conduct medical clinics.

We support long term missionaries in a country that needs practical training as well as the gospel. These missionaries work to build relationships, create disciples, and hope to plant a church.

“All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him..."

Psalm 22:27

Janos & Anja Hench

Hamburg, Germany

The Hench’s hearts are to disciple people so they would see and embrace the calling that God has given them in their lives. The vision for CityLight Hamburg is to become a church planting hub where church planters are trained and sent out throughout Hamburg and northern Germany. The Hench’s desire is to reach people that no one else is reaching within their local communities.

“May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that your way may be known on the earth, your saving power among all nations.”

Psalm 67:1-2

Ongoing Projects

Bible School Building Project: Ghana

We’ve partnered with local Ghanaian pastors and teachers to found a Bible school, with the goal of training up disciples to take the gospel back to their homes all over West Africa. The school has been growing since its foundation in 2007. Now, we’ve purchased land and broken ground on a new, permanent facility. 

Church Building: India

In relationship with local church New Hope Ministries in Chillakallu, India, Crossroads Church has provided funds to build 2 new churches in India, giving a home base to growing congregations throughout the region. We are on track to build 1-2 more churches in the coming years.
