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.
Lena is the Uptown Community Pastor. She is a graduate of the University Of Cincinnati. In 2014 she joined the Crossroads team, and is grateful to serve the people she loves, in the neighborhood she loves.

She and her husband Nick call Uptown home and look forward to the arrival of their first child in May.
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, free wi-fi and plenty of couches.
Meet people. Know God. A place for college students to get in groups and to grow deeper in relationship with God and other students.
