Elders, described in the New Testament as overseers and shepherds, are called to care for and lead God’s People. At Crossroads, the Elders pray, teach and provide pastoral care, as well as leadership and oversight for the church’s staff and ministries.
The Staff is accountable to the elders and is responsible for executing the elder’s vision and carrying out the day to day and week to week operations of the church.
The Deacons are accountable to the Elders and serve as “ministers of mercy” – coming alongside of people in stressful situations by meeting physical and financial needs, and helping them to access resources. The deacons also help people with budgeting, as well as housing and job search needs.
