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. A graduate of the University Of Cincinnati, she joined the Crossroads team in 2014. Lena is grateful to be serving the people she loves, in the neighborhood she loves. She also enjoys playing tennis, loves Walk The Moon and Taylor Swift, is an avid fan of Friday Night Lights, and will always order the buffalo option on the menu. 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.

Stepping into a group for the first time can be intimidating. It might be even more uncomfortable to go to someone’s house. Try an Onsite Group for a season to meet new people, and get specific content and training from experts before meeting in your neighborhood.
God calls us to serve others. You can serve inside a Crossroads site, on our city streets, or in another country. Bottom line, we need you.
Doing life alone is no fun. In fact, people are made to be with people. You have a lot of interests so it’s a good thing there are a lot of groups for you to check out.
Your generosity fuels the life change we experience around here. One way to show gratitude for what God is doing in our life is to give back to Him.
