My wife and I have been extremely blessed by the ministry that makes up Crosspoint. Pastoral ministry is more difficult than many understand and it takes a toll on the human heart and soul more than those in it can even comprehend. Therefore, when we met Rich and Jim, we were dealing with and doing the ministry of church planting and being leaders in Jesus’ church with little to no awareness of how traumatically our journey was affecting us. The toll on our soul eventually showed up in our marriage and we knew we desperately needed a way to navigate our hearts but felt helpless to do so.
Crosspoint has provided us with not only the new ability to truly love and serve others with the gospel of Jesus Christ, but they have helped us understand our own need and given us permission to receive and serve ourselves the unconditional love of Jesus! I’m convinced that even though this journey has been a difficult one to walk, it has opened my eyes to the unlimited mercy, grace and loving kindness of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Therefore, I believe every pastor needs to find a safe place like those at Crosspoint have provided so that they too receive what they are providing for so many in the church!
