Located near the University of Cincinnati campus, Crossroads Uptown serves the college community and Uptown neighborhoods north of downtown Cincinnati. Built in 1873, the building was once home to St. George Catholic Church. The church closed, and in 2008 the beloved steeples burned in an electrical fire. With a mission to breathe new life into the neighborhood, Crossroads purchased the building, and agreed to restore the steeples. The result is a state-of-the-art building that combines the industrial feel of Crossroads with the historic character of the original Catholic church.

Seriously. This is a real place for real people. Regardless of what you think about God, you are welcome here. In a nutshell, you can wear jeans, or dress up if you want. The coffee is free, so grab a cup before you sit down. The music is great and you’ll hear straight up Biblical truth that you can apply to your everyday life. The rest is up to you.
Josh Wade is the Uptown community pastor. Josh graduated from the University of Cincinnati in 2011 and joined the Crossroads team in 2015. You may also recognize Josh from the Royle Family commercials from the Super Bowl of Preaching. He lives in the Uptown area with his wife, Tierra, and their daughter.
Our building isn’t just for services. Come for a meeting, just to hang out with friends, or even for a quiet place to study or pray. Enjoy free coffee, wi-fi and plenty of couches.
Open hours are closed during the summer. Regular Mon-Thurs, 11am-9pm open hours will resume in August.
