Ministry Partner Opportunities
Reaching people for Christ is what we are all about; that is why serving is so important. As a community of believers, we desire to not only know God, but to make Him known. This happens almost naturally as we serve the Lord and His creation. As we serve, we grow closer to God and, Lord willing, those we serve will grow closer to Jesus as well!
So, do you enjoy working with children? Do you find painting or building projects to be fun? Do you love being hospitable? Do you desire to see students follow Christ? Want to have a positive influence on others? These are just a few opportunities at Crosswinds where you could play a greater role in Crosswinds’ mission to know God and make Him known. Below are areas in the church where you could get plugged in. Check out the areas that interest you most, pray, and then follow the next steps to get you closer to serving here!

We want everyone to have the opportunity to experience the blessing of being connected in a small group. We have small groups all throughout our region but we’re always looking for new leaders and hosts to start new ones.
A Small Group Leader facilitates discussion, guides the group gatherings throughout the year, and is the point person between the group and Community Life Pastor. A Small Group Host opens up their home for a small group and provides a safe, clean environment for the weekly small group gathering.
This a ministry that encourages and equips moms of young children to realize their great potential as mothers, women, and leaders. MOPS gatherings are Christ-centered and focus on mentoring, leadership development, sharing honest conversation, relevant teaching, discipleship, creative activities, and childcare for kiddos from birth through kindergarten. Our goal is to offer childcare on 2 select Fridays from 8:30am to 11:00am.
If you enjoy meeting new people and would like the chance to serve our guests that worship at Crosswinds each weekend, the Connections Team may be a good fit for you. You can serve as an Usher, Greeter, Prayer Partner, or Crosswinds Central Host. Each position is unique and offers different ways to show God’s love and hospitality to all of our guests.
Sharing & Caring Ministries
Would you like the opportunity to care for those who are in the midst of difficult circumstances in life? Our Sharing & Caring ministry is made up of a variety of different teams and has several serving opportunities available. Our Prayer Team gathers at the church weekly to pray for all the prayer requests that get submitted by members of our Crosswinds family. Our Barnabas Team writes encouraging cards and notes to those in need of an uplifting word of support and love. And our Visitation Team calls and visits those in our church family who are shut-ins, in the hospital, recovering from illness at home, or in hospice care.
FamX Clubhouse Characters
Do you have the gift of creative communication? Do you love the idea of helping families learn Biblical truths together through laughter and drama? If so, you might be interested in joining as a FamX character. Each month at the FamX service our cast of clubhouse characters put on a sketch in order to bring life application to the Biblical truth that is being taught. This commitment is for the first Sunday of every month from October – June (summers off), with a weeknight rehearsal prior to the service. Time will also be needed to memorize lines prior to FamX Sunday.
Uptown’s Baby Boulevard
Are you interested in caring for the babies in Uptown’s Baby Boulevard during our weekend services once a month? If you have a desire to help support our families with young children here at Crosswinds by loving and keeping their children safe, then this is a great fit for you.
Weekly Ministry Partners
Do you love and follow Jesus? Do you want to make His name known passionately and specifically to middle and high school students? Every week we meet with middle and high school students from all over the community to encourage and motivate them to grow closer to the Lord. On Wednesday evenings are when we take advantage of a high energy 2-hour program. So if you like to cook, barista, throw a football, engage in meaningful conversation, run tech, run around, write letters, design, edit video, etc. then we have opportunities for you!
Campus Management oversees the facility and grounds of Crosswinds. We desire to honor the Lord through the excellent care of all He has provided, and believe it may be a testimony to those exploring faith when they see that we are generous with our time and talents as we help create a beautiful, functional, and safe environment. We invite you to join us and trust that as you pour yourself into serving the Lord, that He in turn will bless you in innumerable ways! Feel free to invite a family member, friend, or small group to serve with you. We have the following 7 teams to consider: Chair Team, Landscaping Team, Maintenance Team, Mowing Team, Painting Team, Snow Removal Team, and Window Team.
