The regularly scheduled Crossroads District Team Update will return on January 4, 2021. Our office is closed this week to allow our district staff the opportunity to rest and connect with family.
I am hearing encouraging reports about our churches connecting and serving during Christmas week. We’re hoping to capture as many of those stories as possible in a special edition of our Team Update that we’ll share next Monday.
If you have a ministry report from your church that you would be willing to pass along for this special edition, please email a paragraph with the details and one or two pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line: “Christmas report.”
To be included, please send your report no later than 5 pm, Thursday, December 31.
The Crossroads District and the Thrive Initiative of The Wesleyan Church have teamed up to provide a practical way to bless you and your family. You are running hard in ministry but, to sustain long-term effectiveness, you also need to rest well. Toward that end, we are making available a $475 grant towards a retreat of two nights or more. Learning resources are provided to make this time as profitable as possible.
The Thrive Initiative has a $500 matching grant available with a second set of learning resources. If your church also elects to participate in this initiative (i.e. paying down ministerial student loans, topping up retirement, fitness equipment), additional matching funds up to $500 are available. For the first month, this opportunity is only available to the first 100 solo or senior pastors that sign up. This opportunity will be made available to assistant pastors starting February 2, 2021.

Thank you for your partnership in the Gospel!
Your servant in Christ,
Crossroads District Superintendent
