Greater Things are Yet to Come
Beginning this past Sunday, seeds have been planted into thousands of people through Financial Peace University and our teaching series Checking the Gauges of Your Life. Utilizing these things together, I am convinced that greater things are yet to come for thousands of people and hundreds of families. Please engage this Sunday and during the week at the Cross Church campus you attend. Bring others with you. Transformation awaits each of us and our entire fellowship of believers.
Advancing the Gospel
Cross Church is all about the advancement of the gospel of Jesus Christ regionally, nationally, and globally. We are always talking about and planning toward reaching Northwest Arkansas, America, and the world for Jesus Christ. That is why we support thousands of missionaries in North America and across the entire world through our partnership with the Southern Baptist Convention. That is why we are planting so many churches across America and the entire world. That is another reason we are equipping God-called men and women through our Cross Church School of Ministry. We believe in advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ.
49 Full-time Residents in Our Cross Church School of Ministry
The Cross Church School of Ministry is a one-year residential ministry experience that prepares leaders for life, ministry, and gospel advancement globally. Forty-nine ministry residents are currently on our team for one full year. These forty-nine residents have joined us from 10 different states and 3 have joined us from Guadalajara, Mexico. We are preparing 27 men and 22 women for ministry in local churches or missionary experience globally. The Cross Church School of Ministry has an ongoing partnership with 10 academic institutions, where these students can earn hours of credit toward their desired degrees. Pray for Dr. Ed Upton as he leads this ministry for and with us.

Whether you chose to aid Compassion NWA by donating clothing, housewares, food, electronics, furniture, or giving a monetary gift, your generosity is a tangible expression of love that helps your friends and neighbors.
See You Sunday,
