TO CREATE LIFE-CHANGING CONNECTIONS WITH TEN MILLION PEOPLE UNDER 50 EVERY MONTH BY 2022

TO PROCLAIM THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST THROUGHOUT CANADA AND THE WORLD

WITH INSPIRED MEDIA, WE HELP PEOPLE OF EVERY AGE AND STAGE BECOME FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST

Upon stepping into leading this ministry after the fiscal year, it has been essential to survey the ministry, examine our effectiveness, and determine our preparedness for moving forward. One of the key characteristics that I’ve found in considerable measure throughout the Crossroads team members is missional resilience.

This year has been challenging for all of us. We have all experienced a year of change, restriction, loss, and disappointment. Yet, we must choose to see the light in the darkness, purpose in pain and hope for the future! Our prayer is that this report will fill your heart with encouragement and inspiration. We hope you see the advancement in the Kingdom that God has accomplished through this ministry despite the year’s challenges and perceive our determination to propel the gospel’s advancement throughout Canada like never before!

Join us in thanking God for the strength and wisdom He has given to enable us to advance the gospel in this season. Would you also commit to praying with and for us? We all acknowledge that the world ahead of us will be different than the world behind us. We have a calling and a mission from God to reach every person of any background, age, and culture with the love and grace of Jesus.

Given the digital landscape, we have a better opportunity to reach more people worldwide with the message of Jesus than ever before in history. We want to expand the message of Jesus with creative resilience, just like the first disciples did. Even though our methods may change, our mission must not!

Friends, we can take heart because Jesus is the Saviour of the world. Let’s move forward with confidence and faith, for in all the challenges we are facing, I’m deeply suspicious that God is up to something good.

Blessings,

As we know, Jesus trained and prepared His disciples to be resilient. He warned of challenge, hardship and struggle. Yet, amid the harsh realities they would encounter, He commanded, “In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” — John 16:33

The New Testament diligently records the early disciples’ inspirational determination to elevate the life-changing truth of Jesus despite an overwhelmingly hostile culture. Your giving and partnership empowered Crossroads to succeed in our resilient commitment to spreading the good news through innovation and perseverance. Our anointed team of media missionaries accomplished unprecedented achievements through all-new virtual events, including our first-ever virtual Vacation Bible School with 3,500 registered children ages 6–10. We continue to be a leading source of information and support to people worldwide seeking prayer, salvation, and answers to life’s most challenging questions with 31 million minutes of Crossroads content viewed!

exists to bring people to Jesus. We do this in three main ways: media, prayer, and care.

Crossroads believes that the word of God will not return void and that’s why we proclaim it through the airwaves, on our prayer lines, and in our humanitarian outreach.
