Our Mission at crossroads church

Our heartbeat at Crossroads is to make disciples that represent the gospel to every man, woman, and child.  We believe this to be true in our local expression of the Church in Columbia, SC but also to the ends of the earth where the gospel has not been preached.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.  And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."  
Matthew 28:19-20
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Acts 1:8

What is Global Access?

The term “unreached” does not just mean that people are lost.  Unreached means that people don’t have access to the Gospel.  It’s not that they could hear the Gospel, and they choose not to believe the Gospel; it’s that these unreached people cannot even hear the Gospel because no one around them knows it.

We see a great imbalance of Gospel access in the world and our desire is to partner with the Father and the local church to shift this imbalance.  Over 3 billion people in over 7,000 people groups are currently unreached by the Gospel, and do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

How can you get involved?

We accomplish this through a variety of ways: prayer coverage, financial support, sending people from our own congregation, short term trips, engaging within local & global partnerships (with individual workers, churches and other organizations), global partner care and education.  Our desire is to serve our partners thoroughly and completely both on and off the field.


Prayer is the most important key to bringing Gospel Access to the whole world.  We need to align ourselves with God's heart first before anything else is attempted.

  • Sign up at to join in on the 24 hours of prayer happening 365 days a year.

GOing is an essential element of the Great Commission to make disciples of all peoples!  We want every believer to be personally involved in gospel outreach by serving locally, nationally, and internationally.  At the same time, we understand that not everyone can go everywhere, and so we must also be involved in SENDing gospel messengers to all nations.  We want to support those whom God has called to cross-cultural ministry through our finances and other practical resources they might need.

God is bringing the nations to us! Thousands of internationals from unreached people groups now reside in our own cities and neighborhoods. We want to welcome them into our lives and show them a living example of Jesus’ love and concern for all people.
