CrossTown began in the success of a citywide event known as the Convoy of Hope. This particular community organization required behind-the-scenes work between churches across the region of Las Cruces. But the big question hanging over everyone’s head was, “How will it work? How will churches, of different denominations and opinions, work together to obtain good for a city they all love?” Here, CrossTown stepped up to the call — by providing a platform for other churches to unify and experience the joy and power of multi-denominations working for one purpose.
This event sparked in us (CrossTown) the kind of love that seeks to rebuild and establish relationships among Christians who, we have learned since, desire to bring improvement to our community, its families, marriages and individuals. Together, we have been motivated to pursue the righteousness of the Lord to establish favor with our city and its inhabitants. CrossTown became a rallying point that day, for all congregations. But we don’t want to stop there — we’ve realized that, without an entity like CrossTown, unity would be harder to obtain. So we move forward.
CrossTown is the catalyst for organizing the city’s congregations: the challenger to every partner to lift up Jesus in his mercy, justice and compassion.
