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.


We send and support a missionary who leads a team of young people to conduct evangelism, street ministry, youth development, and church support in both rural and urban areas in Paraguay.


“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

Short Term Missions


We send teams out every year to Ghana, Mexico, India, and Ireland to work alongside local ministries. There are opportunities for evangelism, orphan ministry, medical missions, family ministry, and special teams for youth. Feel called to the nations? Join us on one of the upcoming trips.

Mexico Family Mission

Dates: July 2018
Location: San Antonio Del Mar

Designed for families with kids of all ages, this trip is a week of serving others, learning about another culture, and pursuing the Lord as a family. A combination of practical work projects, ministry to the needy, and intentional devotional times provides growth and refreshing for both parents and kids.

Ireland Family Camp

Dates: July 2018
Location: Dublin, Ireland

Partnering with a local ministry, we’ll be putting on a week long family camp for inner city families who are struggling in life and relationships. This rare time outside of the city to relax and learn about the Lord is refreshing and life changing for many.

Youth Outreach : Ghana

Dates: August 2019
Location: Bolgatanga and surrounding areas

The High School ministry will be taking a team of students to partner with graduates of the Bible school who are now pastoring in various villages in northern Ghana, southern Burkina Faso, and surrounding areas. We’ll conduct evangelistic outreaches to support their existing ministries.

Medical Outreach: India

Dates: TBA 2019
Location: Chillakallu, Andhra Pradesh

Partnering with a local church ministry, we’ll facilitate a two-week medical camp to provide free vision, dental, and medical care to villages without access to care. We take a team of doctors, healthcare professionals, and volunteers to serve practically, providing thousands of pairs of glasses, prescriptions, procedures, and even cataract surgeries in just a few days of clinic. This ministry of mercy is followed up in the villages by evangelism and outreach by local pastors.

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.

Would you like to serve in one of these areas?

You can serve everywhere (from home to the other side of the world) by going on a trip, by supporting those who go, by praying for our missionaries, or by giving to missions ministry at Crossroads. Sign up for missions updates to receive all the latest info about upcoming trips.

We always need missionaries and people to pray for missionaries year round. Prayer is an integral part of this ministry! Pick up a missionary prayer card in the church lobby for a list of requests from all our long-term missionaries (everywhere from the Middle East to Ghana to Ireland) and requests from upcoming short-term mission teams.
