Next | Eric Larson | Crossroads Sponsor: Kris Huggins
Eric & Rebecca Larsen founded and lead Next and the Next Institute in partnership with MTW. This includes recruiting, training, sending, and sustaining next-gen ministers around the world. Their goal is to develop next-gen ministry movements by equipping missionaries, national leaders, and local churches to reach the global “10-30 Window” (10-30 year olds). The Larsens also invest in mission kids by providing resources, training and care for these Third Culture Kids (TCK, formerly known as “Missionary Kids”) and their parents. Because Eric is a TCK himself, and because he and Rebecca grew up as children of ministry leaders, they understand the unique challenges these families face.

Please pray for the Larsens and their vision of “Reaching the Nations and Next Generation.” The Larsens have 4 daughters. Their “home base” is in St. Louis where Eric also teaches a NEXT Institute course in partnership with Covenant Seminary.

AIM | John Stodghill | Crossroads Sponsor: MJ Stodghill
Africa Inland Mission (AIM) began in 1895 when a handful of men and women set out to spread the Good News to unreached people groups in Africa. To date, there are still over 1,000 African people groups that are without the Gospel. Missionaries working with AIM perform many vital tasks in this Kingdom work, such as training and equipping indigenous believers to lead their own people, Bible translation work, “Jesus Story” film production in local languages, church planting, and even Ethnomusicology (helping African believers craft worship music in their own distinct musical style, rather than simply translating “Western” worship songs or hymns).

Crossroads is privileged to partner with a particular family of AIM in their ministry. Please join Crossroads in praying for their safety and positive influence in Africa.

Tun Tavern Fellowship | Mike West | Crossroads Sponsor: Aaron Root
Tun Tavern Fellowship (TTF) is a network of Christians in and around the Marine Corps. It is a Biblically based non-denominational ministry. Believing that church oversight is crucial, TTF is an integrated auxiliary ministry of Crossroads PCA of Woodbridge, VA, which provides financial accountability and oversight. Crossroads’ involvement began with a Crossroads member, James (Chris) Braddy and his wife Sheri. Chris Braddy, LtCol, USMC (Ret) has a huge heart and boundless enthusiasm for the Lord, His Gospel, and the US Marine Corps. Chris began TTF while attending Crossroads PCA and continued to lead it for some time after he and Sheri moved away. TTF is currently headed by another retired Marine, LtCol (Ret) Mike West. Their ministry spans the globe—wherever there are US Marines. We praise God for His ministry among these military leaders. The name, “Tun Tavern Fellowship” derives from the name of a tavern in Philadelphia. On November 10, 1775, Robert Mullan, the proprietor of Tun Tavern was commissioned by an act of Congress to raise the first two battalions of Marines. Those first Marines were under the leadership of Samuel Nicholas, the first appointed Commandant of the Continental Marines.

Please pray for the safety and wellbeing of those who defend our freedom.

Hope to the Hill | George Roller | Crossroads Sponsor: George Roller
Hope To the Hill is a donor-funded non-partisan evangelical Christian ministry to our highest elected and appointed officials in Washington, DC. We practice relational evangelism in sharing the gospel by building true friendships with our leaders in order to bring them the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our ministry’s tag line is “Ministering to the Capitol Hill Community,” and that is a good summary of what we do. Specifically, we host events on Capitol Hill at which Christian Members of Congress share their faith with those in attendance. The majority of the audience will usually be Hill staffers—those young people that work for Members of Congress. We host Bible studies and prayer sessions. We even sponsor an emergency prayer chain for Members of Congress to get out urgent prayer requests to prayer warriors around the country. We meet with Hill staffers for prayer and counseling. We pray regularly with Members of Congress. We train Hill staffers on how to share their faith. Every three months we distribute the latest Christian movie in DVD format to every Member of Congress. We are even developing spiritual inroads to the staff of the Supreme Court.

George has been ministering on Capitol Hill for over 15 years. He serves as the ministry’s ambassador. He is assisted by Linda, his wife of 45 years. They have five grown children and twelve grandchildren. They have been members of Crossroads Presbyterian Church for over 14 years. George is the current Missions Committee Chairman. The Rollers are grateful for Crossroads’ regular monthly support!

Please join George and Crossroads in prayer for our appointed official and staff members as they deliberate on policies that impact our lives.
