Driven to Reach People – February 2016

As a church, we are driven to reach people, locally and globally.

Brad and Erika Leman are in the midst of raising support in order to go full-time on the mission field with Isaiah 55 Ministries in Reynosa, Mexico.  Read their latest update here.  As a church, we are excited to begin our monthly support of them in March of this year, and we’re encouraging and asking other Crosspointers to join their support team, and commit to pray for and financially support their mission.  You can contact  Brad ( or Erika ( for more details about how you can join their team!

Congratulations to Jon and Sarah Watts on the birth of their son Leon on February 15!  Jon is a Crosspointer who we support as a missionary with Juvenile Justice Ministry in Peoria.  He is hosting a See the Story Event for JJM at the Peoria County Juvenile Detention Center. This event provides you an opportunity to get a glimpse into what God is doing through the ministry in Peoria. To RSVP follow this link.  Would you be willing to join the prayer team for JJM?  They are looking to deliberately engage lots of Christians to intercede on behalf of JJM.
