Crossroad Youth is the program for those in the 12-24 age range. This group that is filled with young adults who share a passion for Jesus Christ. We want every person who comes into Crossroad to feel immediately welcome and a part of the group. One of the great things about the youth at Fellowship is their willingness to love and accept others. John 13:34-45 says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
God has recently sent Crossroad Youth a new Director of Student Ministries, named Randy Gerry. You can check out his testimony, filmed August 2016 when he joined Fellowship’s staff. Randy comes to Crossroad Youth all the way from Long beach, CA by way of Richmond, VA and Denver, CO. He has a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Education and majored in Urban Ministry. Along the way, Randy worked as a high school counselor, and a youth advisor at the Richmond Public Schools. From there he worked in Denver, CO as a treatment counselor for traumatized youth. Randy started a skateboard ministry, a church skate park and “the youth group in the fastest growing church in America” (source: Outreach Magazine 2011). He was the Teen Director for Boys and Girls Club in CA and created his own ministry The Brotherhood.
Randy is ready to shake up Crossroad Youth and is bringing with him experience in the missions and youth fields we can’t wait to see where God will have Randy lead us. He is preparing so many new and awesome ways to bring the young adults in Murfreesboro, TN to Christ.
So much is going on back here, you really have to stop by and say “Hi”! Just some of the upcoming events are Talent Show/Coffee House Fundraiser; Laguna Beach Mission Trip; Tent City/Feed The Homeless; Caveman/Princess Party; New Year’s Eve Lock-In; Warmth in Winter Youth Conference.
Not to be forgotten are the VOLUNTEERS!! This area has always been blessed with amazing adult volunteers to lead and shepherd these young adults on their own walk with Christ. We are always looking for adults with a passion for serving the youth and loving on these kids, if you are feeling led email Randy and express interest in helping out!
