Partners with the pastors, Crossway’s team of biblically qualified deacons are the practical caring and logistics arm of the leadership. They function in service to the body and to the pastors to ensure that their ministry of the word and prayer is not hindered. As the deacons serve deep in the life of the church, they provide valuable insight to the pastors for their decisions in humbly leading and governing the church. Our Deacons are:
