Description of Organization

Crossroads Presbyterian Church is a vibrant church made up of believers who are growing in their relationship with Christ and one another, and who are committed to seeing their community and the world transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Middletown community is the fastest growing area of Delaware with a growth rate of over 200% in the past 10 years. The current population is around 21,000, predicted to top 113,000 in approximately ten years. Crossroads has members from many surrounding communities and towns as well.

Since 1999, we have grown from a core group of 25 to a congregation of around 300. Our church includes people of diverse age, backgrounds, and experience. Our worship service is a reflection of our unity in diversity. Musically, we enjoy a “blended” worship – including new songs as well as hymns. The central focus of our worship service is the word of God and our preaching is both expository and practical, with an obvious emphasis on the gospel. World missions and orphan care ministry have become a vital part of who we are as a church. We continue to send and support both long-term and short-term missionaries to the field. The previous senior pastor left two years ago to follow a call to serve in West Africa full-time, following 15 years of short-term mission work there. The current senior pastor leads mission work in north India and founded and serves as president of a U.S. missions partnership.
