Leadership

Crosspoint Bible Church is led by a Board of Elders.  These men are elected by the congregation and carefully screened.  They are responsible for the vision and spiritual shepherding of the church, as well as for hiring skilled staff members to carry out effective ministry.  For a list of current Elders, consult our directory or contact the church office.

Following are the current Crosspoint staff members:
