We know there is a battle going on, and souls are on the line. Working at Crossroads means acknowledging that fact, and being prepared to fight rather than flee. The thousands of volunteers who make up this place, believe—and they’re on the front lines. Our job is to support those heroes and help them chase after people from their neighborhoods to the ends of the earth. We work to introduce them to God in a way they understand.
Being in ministry means sacrificing for others. We give our time, our resources, and our money. In fact, our staff contributes 8% to our overall budget. When you join staff at Crossroads, you agree to the biblical principle of at least a tithe (10% of your gross income) to fuel Crossroads.
Jesus said anyone who wants to follow him has to pick up their cross and die every day. When we walk in the door, our personal agendas go out the window. We put a premium on obedience to God, because that’s how we show we love him (John 14:15). The prerequisite for chasing Jesus is trading all of our own ambition and goals for his.
As staff members we agree to abide by a set of standards. We promise these things to one another. Before applying, consider if these are promises you'd be willing to make to your teammates.
… to use the Bible as my ultimate standard of truth.
… to practice the spiritual disciplines.
… to receive truth.
… to pursue personal holiness.
… to go directly to the person.
… to trust those in authority.
… to follow-through on my commitments.
… to reach new people.
When God is calling us to action, our teammates need to be equipped to run fast. This means we offer ways to care for the spiritual, mental, physical and financial health of our staff and their families.
