Partnership

What is Partnership?

Partnership at Crossroads is a commitment to live out the mission, vision and core values of the church. It is both an invitation and a commitment to fully pursue intimacy with Jesus and to live out the abundant life He promises to us together, for our city and for the nations.

Partners are those in the Crossroads family who commit to the work of ministry within the church, and partnership is a commitment to missional living with the local body of believers. We call these men and women “partners” because it point to the heart of the New Testament (Ephesians 4:11–14). We call our partners to a higher level of accountability, service and sacrifice than attenders. Partners are the catalyst for building a sense of family within Crossroads. We ask a lot of our partners, because we believe that God is using them, and our church, to do amazing things for His Kingdom in our city.  

How Do I Become A Partner?

Partnership classes are held regularly throughout the year. If you'd like to receive information about upcoming partnership classes,  please email  

If you desire to become a partner, we encourage you to begin serving in one of the many current service opportunities.  There are many opportunities to choose from, both inside and outside Crossroads. Find out more here.     

The Nature of Partnership

In order to implement the principles of accountability and commitment to the local body of Christ, as defined in the New Testament and practiced in the early churches, Crossroads Bible Church recognizes the need for formal partnership.  Partnership at Crossroads Bible Church is for all who are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ and who purpose to follow Him in daily obedience to His Word. We seek followers of Christ who want to partner together for the cause of reaching our world with the Gospel.

Qualifications, Admissions and Removal 

The Board of Elders shall establish qualifications and administer the procedure for admission of Partners of Crossroads Bible Church. The procedure for becoming a Partner is as follows:

1. Prospective members must attend a special class giving an overview on the person of Christ, how one becomes a true Christian and how to meaningfully connect with the Church.

2. Upon completion of the class, any person professing faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior should indicate their desire for partnership on a written application made at the conclusion of the class.

3. Names of the prospective Partners will be placed in the Church’s Newsletter for a period of two weeks. During this period of time, Partners will be encouraged to resolve any relational or other difficulties which could hinder ministry among us.  This process is done in the spirit of Matthew 18:15-17.

4. After two weeks, those who remain candidates will be welcomed as Partners on the next Sunday scheduled for that purpose.
