  Four Life-Changing Stories  

  • Baptism in Izmir

    The room smelled like sewage and the water was ice cold, but that didn't deter Burak from sharing his testimony with a packed room of onlookers. The 20-something young Turkish man had come that morning to be baptized. He brought with him 10 non-believing friends from his university dorm. The spread of the gospel in Turkey is both encouraging and difficult. There are great odds to overcome in this culture, such as being disowned by family and the lack of other believers to provide support... Read More

  • Multiplying Churches

    Crammed around a conference room table, Central Asian believers soak in every word of training. They are hungry for knowledge in planting "multiplying churches." The concept and process of multiplying churches is new to them because they think a missionary is needed to start a church. Instead, we tell them the exciting truth. That a national believer is better positioned to start and help run a new church than a foreign missionary!

    Our national brothers and sisters in Christ... Read More

  • Salvation in a Chat Room

    He entered the Christian chat room to cause trouble. The 20-year old Turkish Muslim student challenged the Crossover missionary with all kinds of questions about Jesus, the Bible and Christian doctrines. Watching were hundreds of faceless individuals who frequently come to the chat room seeking information about Jesus. Why a chat room? Because these seekers, most of whom are Muslim, have no one in their family or their city to ask. Since 1999, two Crossover missionaries... Read More

  • Tortured Until He Lost Consciousness

    Four brothers in Christ knew they were in trouble when the "police" stopped the car. The officers are known to be anti-Christian, and on this day, they lived up to their reputation. The brothers - all from a country in Central Asia - were detained for more than ten hours. During that time, one was tortured until he lost consciousness. Another was threatened with rape.* All because they love and follow Jesus. There is a high cost for serving Christ in certain areas of Central Asia. Yet with millions of residents in need of a Savior, our courageous brothers persevere to... Read More

Crossover’s Definition of a Church

We are happy to report that we have planted over 300 churches thus far as we diligently seek to honor God by planting a total of 2000 church by the year 2020 among unreached people groups. We are often asked, “How does Crossover define a church?” Great question since we measure our Kingdom impact by the number of churches planted.

In the book of Acts we learn that right after Christ left the earth, the disciples started meeting with each other in groups as “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.” (Acts 2:42) At Crossover, we believe a church is a group of believers intentionally practicing Acts 2:42 for the glory of God in their community and among the nations.

As an organic fellowship, a church grows through identifiable stages from its beginning being dependent upon others toward independent maturity. During this journey it is our hope that the church will become more organized, stable, and influential in its community, resulting in a church that is capable of multiplying itself through the planting of more churches.
