2024 Ministry Initiatives
Our weekly need at Crossroads is $27,500. These offerings provide for our facility, staff, ministry obligations and regular monthly mission support. Our weekly need over these two weeks is $55,000.
Mosaic Vision Church Planting:
Unless you are very new to the Crossroads/Westbrook community then you know that we have been working toward the fulfillment of a long term vision to plant Mosaic Congregations in every country and among every people that is represented at our church. To date, there are 32 nations represented in our church. Not only have we started Multi-Ethnic Mosaic congregations locally (think Gente Unida Westbrook and Joliet), but we also have a campus ministry presence in Germany as well as new congregations in Mexico, Panama and the Dominican Republic. On the short list for 2024 (to be Lord willing funded by our 2023 Christmas offerings) are churches possibly in Ghana and Columbia, or in places where these people are. For sure, we will go where the Lord opens doors of opportunities, but these countries are on our radar. Keep your ears and eyes attuned to incredible updates on the Lord’s work!
Emergency Relief / International Aid:
Natural disasters are a regular part of the life of our world. Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Tsunamis and the like are wrecking locations and displacing people across the country and globe. Westbrook wants to be at the ready to serve and provide financial relief when these occur. Your involvement from a financial perspective can allow Westbrook to immediately be a blessing to those in need.
Community Outreach Proposals:
Lord willing, our Christmas offering funds will serve as a catalyst for transformative community outreach initiatives. Your generous contributions will enable us to organize and support programs that directly address the needs of our local community, fostering connection, compassion, and positive change during this festive time of year.
Like so many, regular care of our debt load is a constant strain for us at Crossroads. Any gifts above our stated goal will go directly to pay down our current indebtedness. Crossroads looks with anticipation to the day when we will be debt free, which will free up monies to do significant and meaningful ministry to our community and our world.
