Making Jesus Smile

Remember how we talked about Jesus and the Roman centurion who asked Jesus to come heal his servant? Jesus was amazed by the centurion’s faith. In fact, our faith always makes Jesus smile—it makes him proud like a good daddy who’s pleased with his children. This past weekend, CrossBridge made Jesus smile. We had 60 people in Reynosa loving and building homes for two…

Include Me Prayer

In the past four weeks, we have been ramping up preparations for our Spring Outreaches. It has been so exciting to see over 50 people sign up to go on mission with God to Reynosa, Mexico. They will be loving on three families by building each a home, sharing Jesus, and loving on the families next door. Please pray for our team from March 9-12 as they “raise a…

Go for Three!

In the past 14 months, our Sunday gathering has g rown by over 20%.  We’re beginning to face the challenge of how to accommodate all the children we have, while maintaining the same excellent ministry experience we’ve always had.  We’ve got over 200 people being trained for outreaches and life group leading…and are struggling to find space on Sunday.  So…. We…

Big Announcement this Sunday!

You know how we’ve been talking about “taking a step to the right”?  Well…over the past three weeks more than 400 people made a commitment to do just that.  Some made the commitment to start making our Sunday gathering a regular part of their week. Way to go! Another 306 people signed up to go or get more information on one of our local or global outreaches! I…

Students Rockin’ It this Weekend

Our Disciple Now in-town retreat is starting Friday night. We’re praying for 200 students to come and experience our powerful God and to learn his good plan for their lives. The enemy won’t roll over and just let this go on.  We need to pave the way in prayer, encircling our students as we declare the truth and love of Jesus over them. So many of you stepped up to…

Let Go and Take Hold

We generally don’t improve or make changes for the better unless we release something. Sometimes we have to release old habits or our current way of thinking. In almost every situation, we have to let go of one thing to take hold of a better thing. But let’s admit it, we struggle to let go of what we have without knowing what’s coming. We want to see the…

Baptism, Budget and the Kingdom of God

This coming Sunday is going to be sooooo good! I don’t want to give anything away, but it may be the most encouraging Sunday of the year…which means it’s also a great time to introduce a friend to CrossBridge. They’ll be filled with hope and confidence that God wants to bless them and give them an abundant life. Also, as weird as it may sound, part of the fun will…

Time’s Running Out for World Mandate

If you asked me what’s the most important thing you could do spiritually in the next two weeks, I’d say, “Come to the World Mandate Conference!” It’s a big two-day conference and CrossBridge is hosting a satellite location. The speakers will come in via satellite, but we’ll have live worship and it will be  p-o-w-e-r-f-u-l! Last year was our first year to host and it…

Hit the Bullseye

When you aim for something, your hope is that you hit it dead center—the bullseye. For ourselves, we’re all aiming for lives of significance and joy. For our kids, we’re aiming for them to walk with Jesus all the days of their lives. We’re all aiming for the same thing. That’s what CrossBridge is aiming for as we host the World Mandate Conference, February 1-2. Francis…
