As a part of Crosswinds family and a part of the bigger picture of the mission God has given us in taking the message of Christ to our community and the world, I want to personally thank you for your faithful giving to Crosswinds Church. Your time, your energy and your financial investments have made a difference. This past year has been an incredible year of growth for us as a church and we have continued to see God do incredible things. Some of my personal highlights have been our times of celebrating baptism because of the decisions of people to follow Jesus and go public with their faith, seeing God heal Pastor Michael at the end of one of our services, hearing God begin the healing process in relationships in families, and hearing many of you who are sharing your faith and praying with family, neighbors and co-workers. We have said regularly throughout the year that, “Where God is wanted, He shows up” and we have seen that in person in so many situations. God is faithful and I look forward to ALL that God has for us in the days to come. I also just want to thank the Leadership Team, staff and church family of Crosswinds for allowing me to take a sabbatical this summer to refresh and rest. God truly gave me physical and mental rest during this time and refreshed my spirit as I enter this next season of ministry at Crosswinds. God gave me an even greater sense of calling to this time and this place for the future. I love this church family and look forward to what God will do in the days ahead.
