 CrossRoads Compassion Connection

“Connecting People with Purpose in Christ”


Mission: Partnering with all people, engaging in purpose together through service, and building God’s kingdom through mutually respectful relationships, discipleship, spiritual growth, and living/sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.”


CrossRoads Compassion Connection (CRCC) is an outreach initiative designed to empower and equip the CrossRoads community to serve others. All responses and partnerships will strive to create empowering and life-changing relationships as we live out and share the Gospel.


Our primary objective is to facilitate connections with individuals, agencies, organizations, and churches where God is already at work serving and loving those to whom we are most emphatically called – the poor, oppressed, widowed, orphaned, imprisoned, hungry, and sick – while providing for mutual respect and spiritual growth.


CrossRoads-based development programs will promote a culture of compassion as we model Christ’s love and servant leadership by providing additional outreach opportunities based on the individual and unique gifts of our church family.


We will seek to provide a “hand up” not a “handout” through local, regional, and global efforts. Outreach will consist of relief support through manpower and direct assistance, partnerships for positive change for all people, and developmental initiatives: discipleship, educational programming, job training opportunities, and a commitment to long-term relationships.


Our ministry will target Chittenango/Town of Sullivan/northern Madison County, the East & North sides of Syracuse and the City of Oneida, and wherever God leads us globally (currently Ghana and Guatemala).


All involved will go on mission together locally, regionally, and globally building God’s kingdom and “bringing Christ’s compassion to people at the crossroads of life.”


We welcome anyone to come alongside us in this mission to “Connect People with Purpose in Christ.”
