2019 Global Outreach Trips
When Jesus was asked, "What is the most important commandment?", He responded with LOVE GOD and LOVE OTHERS. (Matthew 22) These two commandments sum up everything that was taught in the Old Testament.
In the New Testament, Jesus commanded the people closest to him to be disciples who "MAKE DISCIPLES". (Matthew 28) These were essentially the last words that Jesus gave his followers.
We can see God's heart for His people by His commandments. God has equipped each one of us with gifts so that we may "LOVE OTHERS" in our own unique way. Our goal is to help you identify those gifts and take your next step in Outreach.
We are excited that you are checking out this year’s trips!
The two main priorities of Crossroads’ Global Outreach are:
• Church planting among the least-reached
• Social justice ministry among the most vulnerable
Our trips embody these priorities so that the people of Crossroads can further these realities with our mission partners in strategic ways, both during the trip and also at home afterwards. You can be confident that you will be going with experienced Crossroads’ Trip Leaders and mission partners at your destinations.
Each of these trips will include several Team Formations prior to the actual trip so that you are prepared to effectively function in the context where you are going. Fundraising training and tools will be one aspect of these Team Formations.
Because Jesus is the Best News in the universe,
Mark Whited, Global Outreach Pastor

Join the Conversation!
Join us for Outreach Connect and jump into the conversation, where you will learn how YOU can make a difference through serving and connecting with our community, regional, and global partners. Jesus taught us in Matthew 28:19-20 to "go and make disciples of all nations". In our time together, you will see why we are so passionate about reaching people with little to no access to the gospel, hear stories of people just like you who jumped in to do their part and be presented with immediate steps to help you get involved.
