MISSIONS AT
CROSSLINE


Missions work is a big deal at Crossline. We want to answer the call Jesus gave to His disciples when He said: “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”- Matt 9:37-38

The Global Mission, Chanje Movement, Code Alpha Ministries

Meet Quentin & Nicole Blakely

Name: Quentin & Nicole Blakely

 

Geography, People Groups, or Ministry Strategies: The Global Mission, Chanje Movement, Code Alpha Ministries

 

Description and Draw to Ministry:

THE GLOBAL MISSION

As mature Christians embrace their God-given role in the Great Commission and fully steward their strengths and gifting, He will be glorified and many lost will be redeemed. The Global Mission partners with the local church in glorifying Christ and proclaiming Him to those who’ve never heard through the inspiration, equipping and sending of His people. “Through my own personal experiences, I realized just how impactful it can be for the average church member to step out in faith and engage in the The Great Commission. While serving others is an absolute blessing, the way an individual grows in their faith and connects to their community through a mission trip is an unparalleled experience.”

 

CHANJE MOVEMENT

Haiti, like much of the world, is in need of change. We believe that God can bring help and hope to the nations, and that He will do that through the hands and feet of people. Together, we are committed to raising movements of change in the cities, towns and villages of the world. “When I was eighteen years old, I stepped out in faith to participate in my first mission trip to Haiti. ‘Lord, break my heart for the things that break Yours,’ ended up being one of the most life altering prayers of my life. The thirst that Haitians have for the hope and love of Jesus is unlike anything I have experienced before. Since my first mission there, my heart has never left.”

 

CODE ALPHA MINISTRIES

Our society’s finest are often at the front lines of the spiritual battle without even recognizing it. As the Director of Code Alpha Ministries my goal and vision is to reach first responders with the Gospel, create disciples and equip them to fight the good fight victoriously for Christ, and to empower them to make Kingdom impacts locally, regionally, and globally. “As someone who grew up in a law enforcement family and had a near decade long career in it myself, the special circumstances and scenarios that first responders walk through daily is very familiar to me. First responders are often times our best representation of strength, but even our strongest need the hope and love of Jesus Christ.

 

Crossline Support:

The harvest is plentiful, and I’m blessed to be sent out to labor in the harvest. My ministry is still in its youth, and I am actively seeking and praying for the Lord of the harvest to bring forth additional prayer and financial partners to send me further into the harvest.

Haiti, Israel, Mexico + to the ends of the earth!

Meet Dave & Anne Brodsky

Name: Dave & Anne Brodsky

 

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies):

The Global Mission envisions, equips and involves followers of Jesus Christ to bring the Gospel to those who’ve never heard…  all around the world and we currently have focused partnerships in: Haiti, Israel, Mexico.  We are developing new partnerships in India and Macedonia.

As a Missions Mobilizer, Dave also serves as the volunteer Missions Director of Crossline Church.

 

Brief description about the work you are doing there:

In Haiti we are bringing a hope and a future to the children of Haiti through community transformation and revival.  We have to dig water wells that provide water for entire communities, to install water filtration systems to provide purified clean water, for home construction, for micro-credit lending and job creation, for leadership and pastoral training, for community outreach and medical clinics and for orphan care and family reunification. Our children’s shelter, Chanje Lakay, has 33 children receiving nutritious meals, clean water, medical care, education and a biblical foundation, English tutoring and job skills in a loving environment.

In Israel, we have full time missionaries who have been serving as residents for more than 20 years, we sponsor a local church of believers from Jewish, Arab and Russian backgrounds, and have an outreach to the community and local university.

In Mexico we partner with the local ministries and churches of Ensenada, build homes in community and continue to develop relationships to expand an outreach of evangelism and discipleship.

 

What drew you to that location / ministry:

Opportunities to share the Gospel, disciple believers, have maximum impact for Christ, plant churches, mobilize believers from the US and bring them back to their home church on fire for the Lord.

How can the Crossline community support you:

Many people believe we are employed by Crossline as part of the staff, but actually we are not paid by the church.  We are missionaries who depend 100% on contributions to The Global Mission for our income / salary.  We welcome families and individuals (or their businesses) to become regular partners with us in advancing the Kingdom through recurring or occasional contributions to our ministry.  We love prayer support too!  We send all our financial and prayer partners a regular email update about our family and ministry.

International School Project

Meet Lynn & Teresa Dobosy

Name: Lynn & Teresa Dobosy

 

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies):

We serve with the International School Project (ISP), a ministry of Cru. ISP is focused on creating teacher communities around the world. We help win teachers to Christ, build them in their faith, and equip them to reach students, families, and other teachers with the gospel. The work has taken place in 31 countries.

 

Brief description about the work you are doing there:

Since entering the public schools of Russia in 1991, the International School Project has trained more than 195,000 teachers in 31 countries. At four-day training conferences, teachers explore their own world view, and are challenged to examine the Christian worldview.

 

They hear the gospel and receive a curriculum that helps their students set goals and avoid drugs and alcohol. The curriculum draws on principles from the Bible. More than 47,000,000 students have participated in the program with their teachers.

 

Many atheistic, Buddhist, or Muslim teachers have come to Christ, and become tremendous witnesses in their classrooms. Not only that, but it all has been endorsed by the Ministry of Education in countries such as Romania, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Ukraine, Iraq and others. The average teacher uses the Bible based curriculum with 74 students per year.

 

ISP has welcomed over 3,000 American Christians to serve as small group facilitators of teachers at the training conferences. Anyone who has led a small group at church, or has done any business training would qualify to be team member. You don’t have to be a teacher.

 

What drew you to that location/ ministry:

God orchestrated that a man in in the Ministry of Education in Russia received Christ at a JESUS Film showing in Moscow. This man opened the doors to the 65,000 public schools of Russia. Teresa and I saw this an opportunity of a lifetime. We have worked with this teacher project for 30 years.

 

How can the Crossline community support you:

  • It would be awesome to see some Crossline supported missionaries highlighted at the Sunday services. Even 3 minutes every couple of Sundays would bring some awareness to the congregation.
  • When COVID lightens and we sent large American teams again, it would be great so see some Crossline staff or members join ISP training teams in Guatemala, or Ecuador, Greece, or Cuba.

Meet John & Lori Gash

Name: John & Lori Gash

 

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies):

We serve widely across the USA and around the world these last 20+ years. Our mission is to be a conduit that connects and unifies people, churches and organizations with ministries and opportunities that bring hope and transformation to the lost, last, and least.

 

Brief description about the work you are doing there:

Our focus since 2016 is to multiply movements of the gospel and mobilize the church for that mission around the world. We partner with frontline like-minded organizations and US church networks and focus on launching and fanning the flames of rapidly multiplying DMM/Disciple-Making Movements that are sweeping across the developing world right now.

 

What drew you to that location/ ministry:

We have been working engaging churches for Africa since 2002, including many years in Malawi. We championed “Y-Malawi?” from its inception, growing to a partnership of 35 churches from 11 denominations and 5 states (including Crossline!) linking arms with 6 ministries in Malawi for large scale long-term transformation of one region of several hundred square miles. We were drawn to the Middle East in 2016 when the Syrian war led to the displacement of 9 million souls and more than 500,000 killed. A tremendous Disciple-Making Movement among the refugees and others in the Middle East is growing exponentially with hundreds of thousands of new Muslim-background believers annually from tens of thousands of Discovery Bible Study groups. God is clearly moving, we are compelled and thrilled to join Him and do all we can to help multiply and spread these movements of the gospel, including to Africa, America, and more.

 

How can the Crossline community support you:

We love hearing from anyone and everyone at Crossline, praying for you, being connected, pursing God and the spread of the gospel together! Joining our prayer group referenced below is great too. We also welcome hearing from anyone that is interested in the Spiritual Authority Cohort at Crossline or reaching out and into the communities and cities all around Crossline in prayer and engagement. Of course we are blessed by those who feel led to stand together with us and this mission financially too.

Meet Scott & Delores Horn

Name: Scott and Delores Horn

 

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies):

Our focus of ministry is helping churches become increasingly fruitful in making disciples of Jesus.

 

Brief description about the work you are doing there:

What drew you to that location/ ministry:

Vision for our ministry developed, as we were involved in many aspects of vocational Christian ministry through the years.

 

How can the Crossline community support you:

Crossline has been a foundational supporter of our ministry over the years through financial gifts and prayers.

Meet Greg & Jill Johnson

Name: Greg & Jill Johnson

 

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies):

Utah

Mormons

Christians

 

Along with John 17:21, we believe that if the body of Christ is united, the world will believe in Christ. We are working to unite the body of Christ with our ultimate desire to see the truth come to our Mormon friends and neighbors across the globe.

 

Brief description about the work you are doing there:

We meet weekly with different pastors from regional areas in Utah to encourage them, love them, pray for them and encourage them to unite with other pastors and churches. We have unity events throughout the year to bring the body of Christ together.

 

We hold dialogues between evangelicals (traditional Christians) and Mormons and train those involved to know how to lovingly talk with others who don’t share our faith. We have student dialogues, scholar dialogs, and leader dialogs. God has given us favor with many high-level leaders in the Mormon church.

 

We write and facilitate bible studies written specifically for traditional Christians to do with their Mormon friends.

 

What drew you to that location/ministry:

Greg was raised in the Mormon church and was led to Christ through a Christian camp experience and has a heart to see Mormons find faith in Christ alone. Jill had several friends while she was growing up that were Mormons and has always desired to help her Mormon friends find freedom in Christ.

 

How can the Crossline community support you:

We would love opportunities to tell others about what we see God doing in Utah among Mormons. We find that people are encouraged by hearing the stories and it helps them know how to better pray for us. We would love to have more monthly committed givers to expand the work of both unity and transformation.

Florida

Meet Matthew & Jourdan Svajda

Name: Matthew and Jourdan Svajda (and Judah 10, Kellar 8, Josie 5)

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies): 

We live and serve our community in Florida. Brevard County, FL also known as “The Space Coast” is becoming a tech hub as the space industry leads the way. People from all over move to our area and nearby Orlando making it a very diverse and transient area. It also means that there’s great opportunity. Barna Research group identified this geography as the 9th most unchurched population metroplex in the United States and the 6th most De-churched population in the U.S. Our strategy has been to formulate missional activity on our own with our church, and as a family, while also strategically gathering and equipping the “Capital C” church of our entire county. We are convinced that God is using our land as a catalyst for renewal that is coming across our county, state, and country. 

Brief description about the work you are doing there:

Fiducia is a latin word that simply means that we are compelled to live out our saving faith. Our mission is to “live a life on mission where we live, work, and play.” With that, our desire is to go and “make missionaries.” A missionary isn’t only someone that moves to an impoverished country, a missionary can a stay at home mom, a teacher, a coach, an accountant, a realtor, or any child of God in Christ. 

Every month you’ll find us gathering business leaders, pastors, and leaders from across the county to equip them to live “life on mission” where we live, work, and play. We host luncheons to equip leaders and have started the group “Space Coast Missional Network” and is recognized as the place to get mission/evangelistic equipping. We also take out teams (2nd Saturdays of the month) to hit the streets, beaches, and neighborhoods. We call this “Salt” as we practice evangelism and use it as an equipping tool for the greater body of Christ. We’ve now had visitors come from across the county, state, and even the globe join us in street evangelism! 

Individually, we see our neighborhood, sports team, and community as our own personal mission field and have even baptized a few people in our pool and the beach(near our house)! One of the ways we show intentional love to our neighbors is giving out free coffee on Sundays and Mondays with a coffee cart we made. On Sunday, coffee is given out to park walkers, and Monday cups of coffee are handed out to parents of a local elementary school. It creates community and conversation and has connected multiple families to the local church. Picture included.

Beyond this, we have a huge desire to engage the business community as a mission field…more on this is coming.

What drew you to that location/ ministry: 

We heard VERY clearly from God that Florida was where He was guiding our family. During the process of searching exactly where, God revealed to us the Barna study and the specific need to this community to reach the unchurched and dechurched. That’s why we’re here….to see this statistic change, and we believe it will.

How can the Crossline community support you: 

We just love our Crossline family. So much deep history and relationship. It’s where it all started. We mostly want prayer support. If an option in the future, we’d love to come share updates of how we are doing. Not even necessarily to raise support, but to simply update everyone. We’d be delighted to even make a special trip for this.

BHAG – You ready? Believing for an indoor action sports facility similar to a YMCA, but geared around surf, skate, moto, wake, etc. Reaching the next generation is a huge desire and we believe the Lord is leading us this direction of business as mission. To pull it off would require multiple millions in financial provision. We have a big God, and it’s all His anyways, so why not? 😉

Los Angeles, California

Meet David & Jen Urquhart

Name: David and Jen Urquhart

Areas you serve (such as geography, people groups, or ministry strategies): 

Los Angeles low-income neighborhoods

Brief description of the work you are doing there: 

We partner with churches in low-income communities to provide outreach and training tools for them to use to connect with their community and build long-term disciples. We provide Powerpacks for back-to-school time (backpacks with school supplies), homeless care kits in the winter, Easter Bags for kids’ outreaches, Boxes of Love for Thanksgiving time, discipleship training classes, and we organize short-term mission trips. We also empower churches with training and support to run their own S.A.Y. Yes! Afterschool program.

What drew you to that location/ ministry: 

While in college, I served for three spring break trips in LA and, after graduating, served for eight weeks. During this time, I worked alongside the ministry partners and experienced what it means to care for those who are marginalized. When I saw the generosity, the community, and the faith of those who are living day to day, scriptures came alive, like, “God has chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit His Kingdom” James 2:5. Others became clear, like, “when you oppress the poor you insult their maker” Proverbs 14:31. Because we are all made equally in God’s image, and when someone suffers from poverty, it distorts God’s image. Although I saw that some donations were going toward poor communities, I didn’t see many people relocating to fulfill God’s call to care for the marginalized, so Jen and I felt strongly, after we’ve been married a couple of years, that God was calling us to leave our professional jobs to serve in the low-income neighborhoods of Los Angeles with Cru Inner City.

How can the Crossline community support you: 

In this season, I am suffering from severe back pain, so pray the Lord would bring healing to my mind and back because the pain is neuroplastic, which means it is originating in my mind and possible to change with retraining my thoughts. When I get better, then I would love to discuss more options like sending short term missions youth groups, or helping us fill backpacks.
