At Crossroads, we believe God designed the family as the primary place to carry out our mission to Follow Jesus, and Make Disciples. It is our deepest desire to see parents be the spiritual leaders of their children. As parents, we believe God called us to take an active role in the spiritual formation of our children. The Faith Path initiative exists to partner with you as you guide your child’s spiritual journey one step at a time.
