The International Ministry of Crossroads Fellowship is an outreach ministry to all people from countries around the world. Our ministry passionately seeks to provide fellowship for believers who seek care and support for each other in our new community, and who want to grow in the Word of God together.

After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, "Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!" (Revelation 7:9-10 ESV)

The International Ministry is led by Pastor Stephen Barine and a team of volunteer ministry leaders who are passionate about creating a warm and welcoming place for all internationals to experience the love of God and receive support from other believers. Pastor Barine desires to connect internationals to the body of Christ and to guide them to become fully devoted disciples of Christ.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be a loving and joyful international community, passionately pursuing God together and growing in authentic relationships that seek to transform the Triangle and the world. We accomplish this through home small group Bible studies and Christian social support groups where internationals can discover their gifting, and use their talents and leadership within Crossroads Fellowship and in God's kingdom.

The International Ministry is passionate about creating a warm and welcoming place for all internationals to experience the love of God and receive support from other believers. We lead, serve, pray, and organize, to ensure internationals can come to know Christ, guiding them to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, who are able to Connect, Grow, Serve, Pray, and Give.

International ministry small groups are the core of our ministry. Each small group will meet regularly, as agreed by each group members, to connect through prayer, Bible study, and social events.

We believe that to go far in a connection with Jesus we need to go together. The good news of Jesus tells us that we are not supposed to live life in isolation. God has made us brothers and sisters in Christ. Real relationships, and community, give us the chance to receive and to live out the love of God. Small groups are a great place to be intentional about that process.

"We value unity within diversity. At Crossroads, we are diverse racially, culturally, economically, and politically, but we have unity because of the Word of God (i.e., the Bible). God likens His church to a body with many parts. Unity is possible because we are many different parts of His body with Christ being the head. We have different gifting, passions, temperaments, callings, perspectives, and backgrounds, but share the same Lord and His indwelling Holy Spirit. By recognizing and appreciating our differences while remembering our oneness in Jesus Christ we are able to harness the power of unity in our midst." (An excerpt from Crossroads Fellowship Beliefs and Values)

We invite you to join us in the journey as we provide internationals that attend Crossroads Fellowship structured immigrants programs that will help them discover their God given purpose of life as they settle in America.
