A note from Pastor Matt…

Some years back as I approached 30 years experience, God pressed me to be more intentional to pass on leadership lessons, growth and experiences from decades of vocational ministry to young leaders. After much prayer and processing with our local elders, Crossroads Leadership Development Residency was birthed. The Leadership Development Residency is not only a venue for my wife and I to pass on what we've learned through conflict, fear, scarcity, affliction and general hard times but also presents us the opportunity to testify of God's faithfulness, grace, provision and strength to persevere.

God has since given our entire staff and body a heart for mentoring, resourcing and developing leaders from elementary school through adulthood. At Crossroads, there is not just one pastor who oversees the residency but the entire team gets involved in mentoring, coaching and investing in residents. A resident at Crossroads receives much from many people in an atmosphere of love, encouragement and unconditional support. We are blessed by God with the opportunity of developing so many pastoral leaders.
