Crossroads seeks to send a team on this short-term, MTW mission trip every summer, so that our congregation can develop relationships among the Cherokee, expressing our ongoing love and care for the people we meet there through the years. During this opportunity for service and learning, team members develop cherished relationships not just with the Cherokee people but also with one another.
In Acts 11:19-30 Christians from different contexts mutually supported one another. Along those lines, in 2014, Crossroads began to partner with German and Russian evangelical churches in order to mutually support each other. Crossroads sent a team to join the Germans in Rostov, Russia in 2014. In 2015 we hope to send another team to join the Russians in Gera, Germany. Finally, we look forward to 2016 when we as American Christians will have our family from Germany and Russia come to serve and learn among us also.
