CrossRoads has a significant missions focus and applies the Biblical direction of Acts 1:8 to our outreach. Under Pastoral leadership, a Missions Committee collectively and prayerfully evaluates local, domestic and foreign opportunities for service where congregational offerings and resources can make a difference in people’s lives, locally and around the world.

Missionaries to the Blackfeet Reservation
There are tremendous opportunities for service withinMontana. To that end, CrossRoads has a significant focus on the Blackfeet Reservation in Browning, developing long term relationships with many Native Americans through the coordination of outreach efforts and encouragement of Pastor Gordon Monroe of South Piegan Mission.
Since 2005, this vision has been built upon by a dedicated group of CrossRoads members, starting with the remodeling of a double wide trailer, home of the South Piegan Mission and the creation of an activity center from a donated utility building. These modest beginnings have helped build trust, fellowship and provide a place of worship for several reservation families.
While CrossRoads 2010 commitments have a primary Domestic/Homeland focus of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and the South Piegan Mission, CrossRoads teams have traveled to the ends of the earth. Foreign Missions have included teams serving in Costa Rica, Albania, Mexico, Peru and British Columbia.
Foreign youth trip opportunities are generally available every other year. Read what some of the CrossRoads youth have to say about their foreign missions experiences on the youth page.
Additionally, CrossRoad's provides ongoing support for full time missionaries and short term support for church family member's service efforts. Current ongoing support assists the local Youth with a Mission program and the South Piegan Mission in Browning. Recent short term mission's support was provided for elder care and orphanage work in Peru, and a student deployed on Youth with a Mission in Borneo.
