Summer of Ministry

Dear Church Family,


CrossNet Disaster Relief Teams completed the renovation on the main Worship Center of “The Church Without Walls” in Puerto Rico. There were 99 participants from 18 local churches serving over the course of four weeks. “The Church Without Walls” held Easter Services in their newly refurbished worship center with approximately 375 in attendance! Four of our disaster volunteers attended Easter Services and were overwhelmed with the gratitude from the churches leadership and members. Thank you to the many volunteers involved in making the project a reality.

SEND DC – CrossNet partnered for 3½ years with the church planting of Waterfront Church and Gilgal Church in Washington, DC. This partnership ended December 2018 with a tremendous movement for Christ in the DC area. There were 15 CrossNet Mission Trips with 630 volunteers from 28 CrossNet churches participating and financial support of $118,197 to assist with this ministry. At the completion of our commitment, both these churches are experiencing continual growth. Waterfront Church is averaging 400 in attendance, 80 Baptisms and 22 small groups that have 260 attending regularly. This month, they moved into a new Worship Space. Gilgal Church is connected to over 80 Ethiopians on a weekly basis in small group and worship. They have had 10 Baptisms and launched a 2nd Church Plant in 2018. Zack Bekele and Zach Randles have expressed how much this partnership has meant to them and the planting of these churches. They are grateful for your support.
