First Impressions: Welcome/Building Operations
Our goal is to Welcome-Connect-Belong. We manage our buildings and provide a great first impression through teams of Parking, Welcome, Coffee, Facilities, Auditorium, Info Center, Open Concept and Front Desk. We look at building great systems so we can focus on people while things run smoothly. Peek at First Impressions
Mainstage: Weekend Services/Production
Our goal is to create immersive environments in which people can begin to be transformed by God’s truth and presence. We don’t make assumptions about where people are or what they believe…we simply meet them where they are and provide them with practical next steps for applying teaching to their lives. There is a saying on our team that “we will do anything short of sin to reach people,” and we do that by filling the experience with culturally current songs, engaging videos, rock show worthy lights, and compelling speakers who model vulnerability and lead with authenticity. Have questions? Email our producer team.

God tells us to serve those in need. To love them, learn from them and fight for their freedom. So we mobilize hundreds of people—sometimes thousands—and we respond to God’s call. Sometimes it’s a one-day citywide blitz, sometimes it’s investing time with the same child or job-seeker from week to week. It might mean feeding a hungry family, or even traveling to the other side of the world on a GO Trip to care for someone in need.
GO Trips have been a consistent part of Crossroads since 2006, because of their power to impact people’s lives for the better and to build community in our city and across the globe. We’ve found that when people leave their zip code and comfort zone, roll up their sleeves and get to work surprising things happen. This big church feels smaller. A passion for serving others is ignited. They have fun. They encounter God.
Growing spiritually means becoming more and more like Jesus in every area of life, and reproducing that growth in others. Spiritual growth isn’t a one-size-fits-all. We offer The Daily, Community Groups, Healing Groups, Small Groups, Discipleship and an annual journey.
We want to reach friends who’ve given up on church but not on God. To do that, we need open seats, optimal times and ideal locations for our friends to hear a relevant message and find community. That’s the idea behind our multi-site plan: to grow communities with a unified vision, close to our own homes. And as we grow in other communities, we can mobilize one unified team, ready to change the face of our region for the Kingdom.
If you have specific questions pertaining to communication/marketing, email our comms team.

Making this place happen takes a dedicated and focused team of staff members. We believe we need to provide that staff with the best tools, benefits and systems possible to do their ministry, while also keeping our costs down and being good stewards of the resources God has provided to us.
We take our entire community on a journey every year. It includes weekend services, a personal app or journal and small group material. Join us for the next one coming in Spring of 2018.
It’s a story full of risk, rejection and unexpected rescue by a long-awaited King. It is the story of how God relentlessly pursues each of us with his love and freedom, no matter who we are, what we’ve lived through or where we’ve come from. It is a story that has the power to change us all. Produced and hosted by Crossroads, Awaited is one of Cincinnati’s top Christmas experiences, with more than 91,000 people attending in 2015.

Super Bowl of Preaching
The lowest attended weekend in churches nationwide is Super Bowl weekend. We said why not change that? So we do it up big-tailgating, atrium pre-show, a preach off and of course great commercials and a half time show. In 2016, more than 41,000 peopled attended Super Bowl Weekend.
We believe that Jesus would open the doors of the church to all who want to come in. We do that during the week as well at many of our sites. This means you can come in our atrium space grab a cup of coffee and enjoy free wi-fi as you use our co-working space to work, meet a friend to chat or conduct a short interview. Check our website for hours or just stop by Oakley, Mason or Florence.
