Working Together to build Healthier Communities

...by coming alongside Churches, Ministries, and Individuals

©2018 by Crossroads Outreach Center

Our focus is to equip churches, ministries and individuals to effectively come alongside people in need. The goal is to utilize God’s warriors whom He has already equipped to serve in the areas where 1) He has gifted them, 2) Their experiences have prepared them, and 3) The victory over their sins has perfected them. Our team consists of individuals who take the call in Colossians 3:12 seriously – to wear the compassionate cloak of Christ, to love whom He loves, and to see them through the eyes of a servant:

  • Pastors

  • Ministry Leaders

  • Business Leaders

  • Intercessors

  • Ex-Convicts

  • Ex-Addicts

  • Jail Volunteers

  • Prison Fellowship Volunteers

  • Professional Counselors and Educators

  • Families of Addicts/Incarcerated

  • Craftsmen, Carpenters, Sportsmen, Seamstresses, Cooks, and other servant-minded people

We have multiple potential locations for housing across our 5-county region that would allow for addicts to be housed according to the “phase” of their recovery process. Each location will have a house parent to provide consistent monitoring, encouragement, meals, transportation and other support. As our communities learn more about Changing Hope Ministry and the mission God has called us to accomplish, several property owners have expressed the desire to sell their home/building for use in this ministry of addiction transformation. Raising the funds to begin acquiring these properties is currently our greatest need. Sustaining them will become the second greatest need.

 

As our teams engage in this messy but perfect work of serving a broken population, the image of God is reflected into the communities and tribal reservations. Heads are turning and hearts are softening in these circles of servanthood. Other organizations who serve the same addicts are becoming aware of our presence and partnerships are evolving. We are invited into their meetings. We are given space to lead the conversations. Desperation is where God loves to shine. We see communities beginning to come together. Churches are stepping up and in. We see evidence of God’s favor in more ways than we can name, and we are fully expectant that He plans to unleash great healing and transformation in a poor, broken, often discarded region of our state.
