The Words of Jesus are simple and straightforward: “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.”
We see so many in our world in need: families searching for affordable and livable housing, the homeless, widows, widowers, single parents, immigrants, people in humanitarian crises, hungry people, heartbroken people, the list is endless. We also look around and see individuals and families who seek to spread hope in a community but do not have the time, knowledge, or resources to do so. We have so many opportunities to be a light in our world. At CrossRoads Missions, we seek to connect willing hands to hurting hearts.
Founded in 1993, CrossRoads Missions serves as a conduit for organizations, volunteers, and funders seeking outreach and giving opportunities they may otherwise have difficulty reaching. We accomplish this goal by bringing people of all ages into impactful service in the United States and Mexico.
These experiences significantly challenge those who consider more profound involvement in philanthropy in the world and their communities.
For more information about our history and mission, read Crossroads Missions, Our 20th Year.
Mission teams who participate with us are involved in multiple areas of ministry, including:
- Medical missions
- Disaster relief
CrossRoads Missions enhances existing local ministries and nonprofits, supporting them with additional resources they may be unable to provide. Our service achieves its highest level of effectiveness by working alongside these ministries so that, when we leave, the ministry of love does not.
