Serving as an elder in Crossroads is a blessing as it gives a great view on what God is doing in this world though His church. God is the hope for this life and working for Him for a better new world and His new fresh spirit in us is making every day very valuable.Eternal life is not only a quantity of life but also a quality of life in the here and now. What I love about Crossroads is that Jesus is in the centre, that  it has  a special fresh approach to shaping ministry and its international / city culture.
