Where to Go and When?

High Energy Services
Each lesson reaches children through God’s gospel saving message touching on the sin of all men, the death of Christ on the cross to pay for those sins, the resurrection of Christ to provide life everlasting for those who follow Him, and the offer of the free gift of salvation.
Our study unlocks the context to God’s unchanging truth through worship, teaching and much more leading children to be forever changed.
Your Kids are Safe at Crosspointe
Your kids' physical, spiritual, and emotional safety is very important to us! Every Crosspointe Student Ministry team member goes through a thorough background check and training before being able to serve your child.

Troy has prior experience as a full-time youth pastor, worked with missions organizations, in construction, sales, management, and is the epitome of “jack of all trades”.
