Welcome to Crossroads!
People who visit us for the first time often comment on how much they enjoy the dynamic interactions among such a wide variety of people. We speak English at our gatherings, and all age groups are represented, including many children and teens, and a large student and young adult population. As you hang around Crossroads a bit longer you will find out that relationships matter to God and we want it to matter to us.Therefore many of us come together in smaller groups which are more conducive for building relationships.
Our hope is that Crossroads will be a place, where, no matter who you are or where you’ve been in life, you can come and experience a life transforming encounter.
We would love to welcome you some time at one of our Welcome Coffees after the service on Sunday, to get to know you and answer questions about how to get connected in Crossroads.
Crossroads was initiated in 1987 by a church planting team sent out by Christian Associates International, now Communitas, an American mission organisation. The team was led by the founder of the organisation, Dr Linus Morris. The church was started in people’s homes in Hoofddorp and Amstelveen in 1988 and within two years started to have regular services in a larger facility. In the early 1990s we became a legal church in the Netherlands. Small groups developed during these years and experienced significant growth.
Since then Crossroads has been through a number of transitions. Throughout them all we kept on growing and developing, both in numbers, outreach and maturity, experiencing God’s purposes and plans for the church. From its inception in 1987 to today, Crossroads has always sought to reach out relevantly to the world in which it is situated.
Crossroads International Church is run by our staff, both part-time and full-time, committed to serve our members.
